Before I read this chapter, I wasn't too sure what global awareness meant. Then I realized, this is a major staple to your credit union career or any career for that matter that you must learn. Since it is a key component to selling yourself and ideas. Global awareness allows you to learn from others' challenges and apply the solutions they used to solve the challenge at hand. This is an important tool that can also be applied to everyday life. If this is something that you incorporate in your credit union, it's going to benefit decision making when it comes to all departments and new development.
