On the Edge

The Art of High-Impact Leadership

by Mike Hunter

On-The-Edge

This is an engaging leadership manual that provides concrete insights garnered from various extreme environments that range from Mt. Everest to the South Pole. By reflecting on the lessons learned from her various expeditions, author Alison Levine makes the case that the leadership principles that apply in extreme adventure sport also apply in today’s extreme business environments. Both settings require leaders to be able to make crucial decisions on the spot when the conditions around them are far from perfect. Survival of both the leader and his or her team depend on it. This book provides a framework to help people scale whatever big peaks they aspire to climb — be they literal or figurative — by offering practical, humorous and often unorthodox advice about how to grow as a leader.
