Goering Center news
Registration underway for 13th annual Leadership Development Institute
By Steve Hater
While some among us are natural born leaders, most of us benefit from training and development. And while all family and private businesses need to develop successors for key roles and potential ownership, most do not have the internal resources to build their leadership bench strength. That’s where our Leadership Development Institute comes in. Since 2007, in partnership with Leadership Excelleration, the Goering Center has “graduated” nearly 400 individuals from this comprehensive program, instilling self-awareness that helps them maximize their leadership potential in ways that optimize their company’s performance.
The Leadership Development Institute consists of 10 half-day sessions. Each session focuses on a particular aspect of leadership:
- Understanding self
- Working with others
- Building teams
- Problem solving
Session topics include:
- Strength-based leadership
- Leadership effectiveness and personality preferences
- Performance coaching
- Relationship management
- Team facilitation and development
- Employee engagement
- Leading change
- Problem solving and decision making
- Strategy and performance alignment
The Goering Center will host candidates for the Leadership Development Institute at a complimentary overview breakfast on Jan. 29, 2020.
Steve Hater is the membership director of the Goering Center. Reach Steve at email@example.com or 513-556-7896.

Personal guaranties: The enemy of limited liability
March 3, 2023
The limited liability protections that corporations, limited liability companies and other business entities afford their owners is one of the driving engines of our entrepreneurial economy. As long as the owners mind certain formalities and steer clear of fraudulent conduct, the limited liability feature of these business entities will protect the owners from any personal liability with respect to their business activities. It goes without saying, that this dynamic by itself allows entrepreneurs to take risks they otherwise might not take.
Are you a leader that can drive results and increase the value...

As a Certified EOS Implementer, I have the honor of working with great leaders that want to grow the value of their business. They understand that the best leaders are those that can inspire and motivate a group of people to exert themselves to help achieve a common goal. In the words of leadership guru Jim Collins: “Leadership is the art of getting people to do what must be done.” Leadership starts with creating a vision, a common goal so people know where to go and how they will get there. As leaders, you must create the vision and provide the tools for your team to execute on the vision while inspiring them to make it a reality.
