Leading Through High Stress with Polar Explorer Ernest Shackleton
Program length: 5:39

How do you manage and lead during times of great change or persistent stress? How do you lead your team toward your True North when circumstances and obstacles change every day?

The lessons of Polar explorer Ernest Shackleton are the subject of one of the most popular Harvard University courses on leadership. When his ship sank in the ice and with a crew of only 27, he was forced to overcome life threatening setbacks as a result of his own mistake of sailing too fast through the ice flows. But Shackleton committed to saving his team of 27 men. He did it through optimism, showing up as his best self, shifting his strategy when it failed, as well as constantly communicating and challenging the men to contribute to everyone’s survival.
