Summary In Leading on the Edge, successful business speaker and consultant Rachael Robertson shares the lessons she learned as leader of a year-long expedition to the wilds of Antarctica. Leading 18 strangers around the clock for a full year - through months of darkness and with no escape from the frigid cold, howling winds, and one another - Robertson learned powerful lessons about what real, authentic leadership is. Here, she offers a deeply honest and humorous account of what it takes to survive and lead in the harshest environment on Earth. What emerges from her graphic account is a series of powerful and practical lessons for business leaders and managers everywhere. Leading on the Edge features practical leadership lessons that are particularly helpful for any leader who must get the best out of the team they've got. Robertson provides solutions to many challenges common to all workplaces and includes real excerpts from her personal journals through 12 months of leading in the most challenging environment in the world. Robertson has appeared at more than 350 national and international conferences and events for a wide range of industries. Leading on the Edge explains what it's like to take charge when you've no place to hide and how truly harsh environments can serve as a leadership laboratory that results in truly effective, authentic leadership.
