Imagine yourself on the highest mountain in the world. You have to deal with the physiological effects of extreme altitude, bone-chilling temperatures, battering winds, and a climbing team that’s counting on all of its members to make smart decisions. There’s simply no room for poor judgment. In any situation where the stakes are exceptionally high, there’s no better training ground for leaders than settings where people are pushed beyond their perceived limits.
Drawing on her experience as team captain of the first American Women’s Everest Expedition, Alison Levine will make a compelling case that the leadership principles that apply in the world of extreme adventure also apply to today’s rigorously competitive business environments in her presentation, "On the Edge: The Art of High-Impact Leadership".
Sponsored by rapid!, Levine will present during the Opening General Session Tuesday, May 5, 2020.
