On January 18, 1915, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his crew of 27 men were shipwrecked within the frigid waters off of Antarctica-home to the harshest climate on earth. They were 1,200 miles from civilization with no way to communicate with the outside world. They lived on ice floes for nearly a year, eating penguins and seals for survival. Their chances of returning home alive were slim to none. But their story doesn't end here. Under the leadership of Shackleton, a potentially fatal disaster turned into the greatest survival story of all time. Unlike other polar expeditions, the crew experienced no mutiny, starvation, cannibalism, and disease. Group morale and unity flourished. And, most importantly, every man under Shackleton's care returned home alive. SO HOW DID HE DO IT? In "Shackleton: Leadership Lessons from Antarctica," Arthur Ainsberg highlights the ten most important leadership lessons that readers can learn from Shackleton's story. These lessons are designed to help anyone become a more efficient and successful leader, whether in their personal or business lives. For over 90 years, the Shackleton adventure has inspired thousands of people to become better leaders-LET IT INSPIRE YOU.
