In partnership with the MIT Leadership Center and with support from the MIT Sloan School, I set out on a journey to climb Mt. Everest’s base camp and the Khumbu Icefall to meet David Breashears, an American mountaineer and filmmaker. Our goal was to examine leaders and teams who were operating at the absolute limits of what is humanly possible to understand the leadership skills needed to tackle herculean obstacles like Everest. Now, we will bring these insights back to sea level so you can apply these same skills to your own professional and personal lives.
