GICTV Ep. 5: “Shaping YOUR personal Future” … Characteristics and Traits of SUCCESSFUL Private Club Leaders”

POSTED ON June 26, 2020 @ 11:00 am

GICTV was very fortunate to have a great friend of the golf industry Down Under, (Michael Leemhuis, MA. Ed., CCM, CCE, PGA) offer to spend some time with us discussing a very timely topic during the crisis we have all been facing.

What are the characteristics and traits of SUCCESSFUL private club GM’s in business and in their personal lives? This is a question on many club managers’ minds and also on the minds of private club Board members that are looking to hire the best professional leader for their club.

Are these learned characteristics, or do you have to have them firmly entrenched in your DNA? Does your personal success need to take a back seat to be successful in your career and vice versa?

In this education session, you will learn the truth about the traits and characteristics and how one can develop and hone these success skills, to allow you to become one of the elite professionals in private club management.

Michael’s extensive leadership and sports experience were achieved during his roles as the President of the Ocean Reef Club, CEO of Congressional Country Club, President of the Club Managers Association of America, GM/Director of Golf at the PGA Tour, General Manager, Sports and Recreation at Sun City Resort, Tournament Director of the Nedbank Million Dollar Golf Challenge, COO of Ellis Park Stadium and MD of Sports International.

A notable career highlight was guiding Congressional Country Club and Ocean Reef Club to the #1 and #2 spots in the Platinum the top 100 of Platinum Clubs in the world.
