Lessons on authentic leadership from the 58th annual Antarctic expedition

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 eighteen strangers around the clock for a full year--through months of darkness and with no escape from the frigid cold, howling winds, and each other--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.

  • Features practical leadership lessons that are particularly helpful for any leader who must get the best out of the team they've got
  • Features solutions to many challenges common to all workplaces
  • Includes real excerpts from Robertson's personal journals through twelve months of leading in the most challenging environment in the world
  • Written by a popular speaker and business leader who 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.
