Who Should Attend

The ideal Admired Leadership Institute participant should be a leader with current significant responsibility and “high potential” for increasing levels of management or leadership complexity. Because of the active nature of each session, a leader with an outdoor orientation is recommended for the program.

The Lodge at Red River Ranch is a four-star western hotel with 15 suites and an impressive great room, sitting just below the red cliffs of Thousand Lake Mountain in southern Utah. Each participant will be provided with a private suite, complete with bedroom, bathroom, parlor, and fireplace. 

While participants arrange for personal travel into Salt Lake City International Airport, we provide transportation from Salt Lake City to the Lodge at Red River Ranch in Torrey, Utah on a chartered plane. At the conclusion of the symposium, participants fly back to Salt Lake City International Airport in time to make connections to all points.
