The Leadership Summit is a new approach to leadership development, based on ground-breaking scientific research, field-tested under the most brutal conditions on the most difficult summits, and successfully applied in the training of executives, management teams and entrepreneurs throughout the world. Each chapter takes one core lesson and approaches it from three points of view. First, the authors introduce a key leadership principle learned from expeditions in the Himalayas and Andes. Then they bring these lessons to the world of business, with examples from their experiences in coaching entrepreneurs and business management teams. Finally, the authors look at the science behind these winning strategies, exploring these principles at their fundamental level. Each chapter concludes with a workbook-style summary, laying out the chapter's key points as a summarized, plan-of-attack blueprint that will help the reader: master the courage and skill to approach leadership from a practical perspective, overcome persistent barriers to performance, understand the source of dysfunctional behaviors that plague organizations and learn how to overcome and redirect them into productive results, understand why chronic management problems exist, where and why they originate and what to do about them, enrich profits, markets and organizational culture.
