What are leaders doing in the face of the Covid-19 crisis?
One of the inspiring leaders I worked with, confided to me that his first reflex was to bring out again a book that often guided him in times of crisis: Leading at The Edge. These are the leadership lessons learned from Shackleton's extraordinary expedition to Antarctica.
In 1914, explorer Ernest Shackleton set out to explore the Antarctic continent with his team of sailors and scientists. His ship soon found itself trapped in the ice. The crew faced with the Siberian cold, the scarcity of food and supplies fought for their survival for two interminable years before finally being rescued. The 120-day adventure ended after 634 days.
