Leadership Lessons Learned on Everest - Part 2

Episode 11,   Jun 29, 2023, 09:58 AM

The second part of our chat with record-breaking mountaineer, Jake Meyer.  We are talking about his latest expedition to climb some of the highest mountains in the world, and the equivalent leadership, business and personal lessons that can be gleaned from it.

If you haven't listened to part 1, you should go back and listen to it first: not just because we are recounting the story chronologically, but also because there were some really good insights into team dynamics, motivation, organisational culture and more.

In this second part, Jake talks about how he reacted to the failure of not summiting Kangchenjunga, why he decided to carry on with the expedition, the journey to the top of Everest and the feeling of getting there, and his feelings now having returned safely home.

In terms of comparative themes, we discuss dealing with and learning from failure, the joy of the journey versus the pressure of binary targets, the importance of mental toughness, grit and resilience, and well-being - knowing how to look after yourself.
