The Scarlett Leadership Institute recently presented the American Heart Association with a $12,000 donation thanks to 13 local senior executives and the generosity of internationally-renowned executive coach Marshall Goldsmith. Goldsmith, who is the author of the best-selling business book What Got You Here Won’t Get You There, works primarily with high profile organizations and individuals. On Oct. 16, Belmont welcomed Goldsmith to campus for a special presentation on the topic of leadership and coaching. Goldsmith donated his time to work with the executives and CEOs, who each paid $1,000 to attend. All of the proceeds were donated to local charities – $12,000 to the American Heart Association and more than $1,000 to Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee.
Making the check presentation to the American Heart Association on Dec. 4 were Jimmy Batten, CEO of Batten & Shaw and the attendee who recommended the money be donated to the American Heart Association; Joe Scarlett, founder of the Scarlett Leadership Institute; and Jerry Brase, executive director of the Scarlett Leadership Institute. Michelle Moschel, vice president of the Greater Nashville American Heart Association, accepted the donation on behalf of the Nashville chapter.
