Boulder adventurer Jeff Evans to share knowledge at CMU

t’s not enough simply to be a leader, says professional mountaineer and acclaimed motivational speaker Jeff Evans of Boulder.
You also have to know how to serve those you lead, a situation Evans refers to as being a “servant leader.”
“I think all leaders, and especially new leaders, should be reminded of what it means to be a leader,” Evans said Tuesday, speaking from a waiting area in the Atlanta, Ga., Hartsfield-Jackson Airport. “It’s quite remarkable how much more effective teams can run when everyone is less concerned about their own personal agendas and puts the team first.”
