What is Roaring Fork Leadership?

Originally known as Leadership Aspen, RFL founded in 1988 by a group of local citizens concerned about the need to strengthen relationships and skills among community leaders. Our mission translates into numerous programs and events – all with the intent of helping individuals and organizations build effective leaders through training, practice, and application. Our leadership training and programs immerse individuals in experiential learning to shift conversations from ‘right/wrong’ to ‘what works/doesn’t work’. This builds a safe and trusted environment so that collaborative decision making and civic dialogue are possible. Upon completion of the programs, we connect our leaders to opportunities to serve for the betterment of our local communities.

Our vision: Better Leadership, Better Communities

Our mission: We aspire to engage individuals in opportunities for personal and professional growth. Using a common language, experiential learning and skill development, we create connections and build leadership capacity. Our programs transform individuals by enhancing awareness of one’s impact and ability to collaborate in their community.
