Shackleton on Leadership

Shackleton once commented, "Leadership is a fine thing, but it has its penalties. And the greatest penalty of all is loneliness."

At Cape Royds on the Nimrod expedition and aboard Endurance, Shackleton's living quarters were separate from the rest so the crew would have space to vent any frustrations.

From Shackleton's Way...

When Mike Dale became "president of Jaguar North America, Mr. Dale realized what an important role business leaders play in setting a tone in their workplaces. 'My body language, the way I acted, and the way I spoke influenced everything in the company, he says. 'Something I got upset about in the morning was all across the U.S. by 10:30.'"
