But every man survived. Every man ascribed it to Shackleton's superb leadership. Nearly a century later, this once-overlooked explorer is riding a wave of "Shackleton mania". Yet nowhere have the secrets of Shackleton's leadership success been fully analyzed. This book draws on anecdotes, crew diaries, contemporary material, and interviews with some of today's leaders to illustrate Shackleton's tactics. The text provides information on how to manage crises with limited personnel and resources, how to create order out of chaos, how to hire good workers, how to support and inspire employees to do their best, and how to lead by personal example - with optimism, egalitarianism, humour, strength, ingenuity, intelligence, and compassion.Hide synopsis

Shakleton was an amazing man. This book explores his leadership style and what influenced him. It is an excellent indepth study of his personality, and why his men responded to him with the loyalty and trust they did. An excellent read for anyone interested in Shackleton and/or great leaders.
