Shackleton's Way - Leadership Lessons From The Antarctic Explorer


In 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton led twenty-seven men for almost two years through a harrowing fight for their lives after the wreck of their Antarctic ship, Endurance, left them stranded on an ice floe some 2,000 kms from civilisation. Every man survived, and every man ascribed it to Shackleton's superb leadership.

'Shackleton's Way: Leadership Lessons from the Great Antarctic Explorer' is a one day multi-media seminar. Historic film and pictures are included. It is a fascinating and practical case study of a leader who triumphed by putting people first and striving for the seemingly impossible. It is an inspirational look at how to achieve goals by unleashing strengths in individuals that they never knew they had.

The seminar focuses on highly practical applications of leadership skills ensuring that participants benefit immediately. Practical exercises, relevant case studies, lively presentations, film and discussions will be conducted throughout the day.

The course is an endorsed programme to Richard Coles from the authors of a best selling book on the subject. It has been run for business luncheon groups, teams, hotels, airlines, sales conferences, motivational experiences, management teams, CEOs and Managers, and even MBA classes. This provides a solid learning experience that will result in leadership skills application in the work place.
