Leading on the Edge

Extraordinary stories and leadership insights from the most extreme workplace on the planet


Signed copies available from Rachael's online store today!
Also available where all good books are sold.

In Leading on the Edge, successful business speaker and consultant Rachael Robertson shares the lessons she learned as leader of a year-long expedition to the wilds of Antarctica. Leading eighteen strangers around the clock for a full year—through months of darkness and with no escape from the frigid cold, howling winds and each other—Robertson learned powerful lessons about what real, authentic leadership is. Here, she offers a deeply honest and humorous account of what it takes to survive and lead in the harshest environment on Earth. What emerges from her account is a series of powerful and practical leadership lessons for business leaders and managers everywhere.
