Why Shackleton?

Updated: Jan 2, 2020

Why would anyone use an obscure Antarctic explorer as a leadership model? Let me give you four reasons...


1 / How often do you find a group of people cut off from the rest of the world for an extended period of time?


2 / How often does a group come through a two-year, life-threatening ordeal successfully?


3 / How often do you find a group taking notes on their leader's strategies in the midst of a harrowing ordeal?


4 / How many teams describe their leader when all is said and done as "the greatest leader whoever came on God's earth, bar none."?


That's Shackleton's Way.
