“The most dangerous leadership myth is that
leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership. That’s nonsense;
in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.” Author and
leadership consultant Warren Bennis may have penned this much used quote, but
everyone knows it.
Making sure we ‘make’ new community business leaders
is what LEAD (Leadership. Engagement. Action. Development.) GLI is all about. Introduced just this
week, LEAD GLI is a business leadership development program offered exclusively
for employees of GLI’s Top Investors. The six-month comprehensive program is
designed for those who want to enhance their leadership skills, expand their
personal networks and give themselves a much more in-depth understanding of the
region’s economy and economic development strategies. The half-day
sessions will provide class members valuable information about the community’s
opportunities and challenges in the areas such as job creation, entrepreneurial
development, human capital, public policy, and more.

referred to as Spaghetti Junction which is the approach to the bridge on the
Kentucky side and new approach on the Indiana side to both the Kennedy and the

Indiana for over a decade of focus and a steady and loud drumbeat that has
helped us reach the point we are at today,” he said.

The even better news is that Louisville is reinforcing that position by being the first city in the southern region of the U.S. to offer an accelerator for early-stage, health-related companies.
XLerateHealth is led by Bob Saunders, a seasoned venture capitalist who has worked with more than 100 startup companies. His fellow co-founders are Ted Smith, a successful health care entrepreneur in his own right, and Director of Economic Growth & Innovation for Louisville Metro Government; and Bobby Ferreri, Executive Director of Greater Louisville's Inc.'s EnterpriseCorp.
The goal is for XLerateHealth to house some of the most innovative health-related companies in the United States and concentrate on leveraging industry partners, including providers, payers and ACO's, to fast-track learning and growth through real-world pilot testing at potential future customer sites for participating companies.

Each year, GLI goes hunting for the top small businesses in the community in order to recognize and celebrate them for the tremendous contributions they make to our economy and our region. The best of the best are presented with an Inc.Credible Award and this year, we may be looking for you.
If you’re a small business owner or know of a small business that is exceptionally innovative and successful, GLI wants to know about it. GLI already knows that small businesses are the backbone of our local economy, making up more than 99.7 percent of all employers and providing jobs to half of all private sector workers.
The Inc.credible Awards were started in order to recognize outstanding small businesses in eight categories and to celebrate those winners publicly as examples of what hard working and creative business people can do.
This year, the 2013 Inc.credible Awards Luncheon will be held on Friday, August 23 at the Galt House.
