Posted by Kitty McConnell on June 19, 2013

Leadership tips and trends from Ohio business leaders as quoted in the recent financial news:

--“CEOs tend to make their mark by their ability to manage massive success or catastrophic failure. Being forced to navigate the highest highs and lowest lows will enhance a leader’s situational awareness,” said Jim Hagedorn, chairman and CEO of Scotts Miracle-Gro, in The Big Stage from NYSE, 6/2013.

--“We’re in a Food-network era of growing consumer knowledge and thirst for good, full-flavored products,” 101 Beer Kitchen owner Jessica Kittrell told the Columbus Dispatch in a discussion on the rising popularity of craft beer/food pairings among diners, 6/18/13.

--"Change is always hard,” David Blom, CEO of OhioHealth told Columbus CEO in his July issue Q&A. “You have to paint a vision that’s brighter than what exists, then spend enough time with people and understand their concerns to deal with that resistance in a way that they come along.”
