Getting the Best from Your Team

Senior investment bank advisor Eric Miller said about Shackleton...

"He had some weak members, but he blended them in so they were neutralized. [Shackleton] never showed them his personal disappointments or ever stooped to vindictiveness."

Miller went on to comment, the Endurance tale is "a wonderful example and exhilarating story of the human capabilities" to overcome adversity. As a former marine officer in Korea, Mr. Miller admires Shackleton's concern for the safety of all his men. He is particularly struck by how well Shackleton was able to personalize his communication with his officers and men.

... He adds, "organizations have become more horizontal and less hierarchical."
