And I’ve been lucky enough to have had the opportunity to learn from some of the best. Leadership in extreme environments requires the willpower, the teamwork, the high moral character, and the emotional intelligence necessary to overcome exceptional hurdles, solve complex problems, and face any sudden, uncontrollable, high-risk situation, including those that exist in today’s business world.

It is possible that there are minor errors in this book, which I assure you are unintentional. Some of the entries from my expedition blogs were slightly tweaked in order to correct grammar and spelling (it’s not always easy to get that stuff right at altitude). If there are any glaring errors or omissions, they are probably the fault of my ghostwriter.
