Christopher Ridenhour, GFN, provides strategic leadership, coaching, and training to upwards of 1,500 staff in an organization defined by a Culture of Considerate Behaviors.  The goal is for every single team member to feel valued, appreciated, and expertly equipped to provide exemplary services in a highly stressed and regulated industry.  The Mission, Vision, and Values must be more than the words on the website in order to excel and stand out as a provider and employer of choice.  How is this possible?  Research-based best practices.  Integral, vulnerable leadership.  Necessary accountability.  Honest conversations.  Authentic relationships.  And, of course, lots of affirmation and laughter!

What Past Attendees Have Said...

"I really enjoyed every moment of the Executive Director Leadership Institute. It was educational, thought-provoking, and made a baby boomer (like me) think outside of the box when communicating with other generations. It was a wonderful experience to be in a room with professional EDs who are driven and dedicated to excel and listen and learn from each other."

"The opportunity for connection and relationship-building at EDLI was just as valuable as the information received. And the information received was VERY valuable!"

"It is worth every minute, and you will go back to your community a new manager with a different lens to look at the way we do our job."

“EDLI is 100% focused on the executive directors, who are the heart of our organization, and so to give back to them, to give them the resources, is one of the most amazing things that I’m able to do with Argentum.”
