P. Endurance by Alfred Lansing is great book. I've got Shackleton's South and Worsley's Endurance on the tbr to read! There is just something so compelling about this journey.

Sabrina I know P! I actually went to a leadership training facilitated by the author of Shackleton's Way: Leadership Lessons from the Great Antarctic Explorer. It was wonderful! Left feeling encouraged and full engaged....until I got back to the office.

P. Sad, isn't it? Yet there are so few real leaders about. Lansing's book - written in the late 50's I believe - makes several comments on Shackleton's leadership ability - attributing it to unbounded self-confidence which, like a great wave carried everyone and everything aloft with him. And those few times when it faltered as well.
