Focusing on the CEO and executive team, CEO Solutions was founded in 2010 by Harlan Goerger.
In 2008 the real-estate bubble popped, and the recession began. Harlan’s clients found themselves in layoff and survival mode, battling with banks, trying to figure out how to keep going, and looking for answers. “I cannot be the only one struggling with this!” and Harlan’s response is, “You are not.” He gathered them together to discuss strategies and provide support, to which they indicated, “Continue this, facilitate it, and we’ll pay you.” Such is the start of CEO Solutions.
From there, the challenge for Harlan was, “How do we continually challenge CEOs, so they continue to grow as well as their companies.” The concept of EOS by Geno Wickman was introduced and adopted as the operating system of the groups. This provides a common language in both problems solving and growth strategy and driving depth of conversation on issues. In addition, the Leadership Challenge was added to each session, thus continually enhancing the CEO’s leadership capability and capacity.
To do that which significantly positively impacts our clients and their teams to enhance their value, capability, and impact on our world
