Leading a Life, not just Living One

This talk by Chris Gergen inspires me:



Chris is the Director of the Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute at Duke, and is also the Executive Director of Bull City Forward. Chris co-founded New Mountain Ventures, Life Entrepreneurs, LLC, and SMARTHINKING.

He also started a coffeehouse/bar that promoted the arts and music in Santiago, Chile, and helped launch the “Entrepreneur Corps”, a program sponsored by AmeriCorps*VISTA that placed 400 full-time business volunteers for a year of service in over 90 non-profits in the USA.

He is a board member of E.L. Haynes Public Charter School in Washington, DC, and started LEAD!, a non-profit leadership, entrepreneurship, and service program for Gonzaga College high school students in DC.

He co-authored the book Life Entrepreneurs: Ordinary People Creating Extraordinary Lives.
