The LightHeart Institute lost a great friend today – Daniel E. Hedberg,
who passed away peacefully in his sleep on December 1, 2016.
Dan served as a volunteer for The Center for Intentional Leadership at The LightHeart Institute hosting the 2016 Global Leadership Summit and preparing for the 2017 Summit. (His wife Maureen was a key volunteer in 2016.) Dan was also the Team Leader for Between the Summits – Leading the Rochester Community from Here to There.
Dan was passionate about promoting leadership development to anyone who would listen and helped to create our leadership vision for Rochester: LEAD – Leadership Excellence Achieved through Development. Dan so thoroughly believed that “leaders are made, rather than born,” he read and summarized over 300 books on the topic, and sought to share them with anyone who would listen. His biggest professional dream was to found a leadership Institute training students for great leadership impact.
We will be forever grateful to Dan, and his leadership, for the countless hours he selflessly devoted, his adamancy that all areas of our programming be well thought out, his insistence that we live the model we profess to the best of our ability, and his dream – that we inspire a new paradigm of thinking resulting in new behavior creating an Upward Spiral of economic prosperity, health and well-being for Rochester and beyond.
We will miss you Dan.
