Thanks for dropping in. I’m a conservation professional in the federal government with over twenty-five years of experience in conservation, from Washington, DC to Alaska. I’m an informal and formal student of leadership. In my career, I (along with a growing number of colleagues) have come to realize conservation requires more than an ecological understanding. To be successful, inside and outside the office, we need to understand people. If we understand people, we are better equipped to lead them.
I created this blog as a service for everyone trying to lead people. Periodically I, or a guest contributor, will discuss conservation leadership challenges and successes. The intent is to uncover lessons learned, share observations, find patterns, and offer opinions to promote leadership in conservation. I hope you find something in the blog that proves useful in your life or work. If you engage in the conversation, we’ll learn something together.
