Books, Blizzards, and Planning

What Book Has Changed Your Professional Life?

This might seem out of left field. “Into Thin Air” is a personal account of the Mt. Everest Disaster in 1997 written by Jon Krakauer. This book clearly demonstrates how leadership, strategic planning, and team work are so critical to success. I encourage everyone who works with me to read it.

The key takeaway: Don’t compromise the plan you made with a clear head amidst the blizzard of a crisis, and recognize that your actions may have a devastating impact on those who rely on you for guidance.
