  • Includes experiential anecdotes and teachable moments from a varied range of outdoor leaders
  • Highlights best practices on how to integrate DE&I into outdoor leadership
In this inspiring new guide, experienced leader Jeannette Stawski focuses on the essential attributes of outdoor leadership: resilience and grit, integrity, tolerance for adversity, and highly developed listening and communication skills. She explores the ways a transformational leader makes good decisions, creates and champions a vision, and leads meaningful change. Personal anecdotes illustrating hard-won lessons are included throughout, while exercises emphasize key points and encourage readers to apply what they've learned to their own situations.

Drawing in part on the teachings of Karel Hilversum, co-director of Cornell's Outdoor Education program, Stawski does a deep dive into how to integrate diversity, equity, and inclusion into outdoor leadership. She also features stories by Kenji Haroutunian, Stacy Bare, Courtney Aber, Lily Durkee, Nikki Smith, Joe Stone, and others to provide additional perspectives and experiences that reinforce the message that there is no one right way to lead.

Whether you're an outdoor professional or new to spending time in nature, you'll draw inspiration from the wisdom of The Outdoor Leader.
