Dale Williams had a problem. He inherited the leadership of a small town that was facing high rates of youth crime and unemployment, vandalism, and the looming threat of closing businesses. He listened to his community and fought to implement creative solutions, significantly improving local systems in Otorohanga as Chair of the Mayors Taskforce for Jobs with their goal of "zero waste of youth."

In this recording of Maxim Institute's event, "Wasted Youth?", Dale shares his creative and practical approach to leadership, and through the talk and Q&A session that follows, issues an invitation for us to consider how his story could transform the way we look at leadership, local government, community works, and social policy.

Also from the event, the recording of Dietrich Soakai's spoken word piece Take Stock, which can be found at vimeo.com/maximinstitute/takestock
