Project Description

Austin Weiss, RFL Academy 2003

Roaring Fork Leadership (Leadership Aspen at that time) has had a profound impact on both my professional and personal life here in Aspen.  Ultimately, RFL equipped me with numerous skills and tools for dealing with the countless issues one faces in a leadership position.  The focus of effective leadership through communication, civic leadership, and conflict resolution has helped prepare me to take on the challenges of the work I been engaged with at the City of Aspen.  The networking that RFL facilitated has helped me build relationships with many of the valley’s leaders and has allowed for numerous opportunities for collaboration.  I am truly thankful for having the opportunity to participate in the Roaring Fork Leadership program.
