Stranded in the frozen Antarctic sea for nearly two years, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his team of 27 polar explorers endured extreme temperatures, hazardous ice, dwindling food, and complete isolation. Despite these seemingly insurmountable obstacles, the group remained cohesive, congenial, and mercifully alive—a fact that speaks not only to luck but to an unparalleled feat of leadership.

Drawing on this amazing story, Leading at the Edge demonstrates the importance of a strong leader in times of adversity, uncertainty, and change. This engaging and practical audiobook reveals ten strategies for success, illustrating how leaders can:

• Instill optimism while staying grounded in reality

• Have the courage to step up to risks worth taking

• Consistently reinforce the team message

• Set a personal example

• Find something to celebrate and something to laugh about

• Never give up

Today’s leaders have much to learn from this gripping account of survival against all odds. Leading at the Edge will help them bring order to chaos—and achieve success in the face of adversity.
