These trying times invite each of us to contribute to the creation of a better world. Through inspiring stories of leaders at all levels, former Vail Valley resident Chuck Wachendorfer illustrates a definition of ‘leadership intelligence’ that we can employ in our daily lives.

The world needs positive leadership more than ever. Luckily, there is a large untapped source of leaders who can change the world for the better: all of us! Since each of us constantly influences those around us, by definition, everyone is a leader–not just people with formal titles.

This workshop-style event includes a presentation and Q&A with author and leadership coach Chuck Wachendorfer as well as round table discussions with members of our community.

Wachendorder’s work showcases compelling stories of a varied cast of characters, including the head of a skiing expedition to the North Pole, an Olympic snowboarding coach, a mountaineer leading a high-altitude Himalayan climbing team, the executive director of an innovative low-income senior housing community, and the founder of a pioneering youth basketball program for girls. We will also meet entrepreneurs and executives in the financial services, health care, educational, travel and media industries.

Wachendorfer will help everyone tap into the power of their influence to pursue a meaningful purpose, whether on the job, in the community, or at home. All it takes is leadership intelligence, a combination of 8 moral, social, and technical imperatives essential to our ability to positively influence others.

“There are no easy answers to leadership challenges, but I was moved by the insights presented in a new book, ‘Don’t Wait for Someone Else to Fix It,’ by Doug Lennick and Chuck Wachendorfer.” —Martin Zwilling in Inc. Magazine
