Effective leadership is vitally important in life-and-death situations that take place hundreds of kilometres above the earth, says Chris Hadfield.

The first Canadian commander of the International Space Station, Hadfield said being a leader in space comes with more pressure than many comparable roles on Earth and, in most cases, the costs are extremely high for failure and there is often no second chances to fix mistakes.

Hadfield has travelled the world over the past two decades telling stories about his time in space and "sharing ideas" about leadership with his audiences, and will speak in Nanaimo on Oct. 20. Hadfield's presentation at the Port Theatre is the latest in a series of leadership initiatives being presented by the Nanaimo Daily News, Coastal Community Credit Union and other community organizations in the city.
