Chris taught a course on leadership and teamwork at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School for 15 years, and created and directed an experiential leadership development program that took him and over 200 participants and corporate sponsors to high peaks and challenging environments around the world. 

From the summit of Wyoming's dramatic Grand Teton to Iceland's highest snow peak, to the wilds of Patagonia and far beyond, his team-based programs with world-class mountain guides have taught leadership lessons with lasting impact for leaders in both business and non-profit organizations. 

His new book, Lead Like a Guide, vividly brings to life what he learned through his travels, interviews with expert guides, and his own experience in the mountains.  Now, readers of Lead Like a Guide can consider how they, too, can apply the leadership strengths of world-class mountain guides in their own lives and work settings.

Chris earned a graduate degree in Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, and holds a PhD in Public Administration from Penn State.  He is a Senior Fellow of the Center for Leadership and Change Management at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
