"Leading for legacy is the highest end of leadership"--Peter Bailey in Outward Bound Lessons To Live A Life of Leadership
Peter is the president of the Prouty Project, which delivers strategic planning and leadership development to organizations worldwide. Prior to joining the leadership of the Prouty Project he worked as a global performance consultant for Wilson Learning, designing cross cultural and global performance improvement programs.
Peter was one of the first "urban Outward Bound instructors" in the country and helped pioneer much of the early experiential learning movement in schools. His innovative work and deep grasp of experiential education has led to a career of helping organization's find their highest calling and leaders find their deepest strengths.
In addition to the work he does with business executives, Peter continues his relationship with Outward Bound by serving on the board of the Voyaguer Outward Bound School in Minnesota. His advice to leaders as told in Outward Bound Lessons:
"Hold a deep belief in people that they are inherently good. Be a vulnerable leader and invite more of these dialogues for mutual understanding--not necessarily mutual agreement, but mutual understanding."
Wise words from an exceptional expeditionary leader! Thanks Peter for sharing your story in Outward Bound Lessons To Live A Life of Leadership.
