Shackelton Keeps moral of men up while on terrible voyage. Stands exposed to weather in front of boat to show men he is with them.

Leadership CalmIconicSelflessAssuring So what are some important Lessons to take away from the stories of Shackleton and Sergeant “Wild Bill”? James Caird
As you look at and think about the things your team needs to do to reach The Edge, what are the most critical priorities? Think of a vivid image or symbol (i.e. person or movie you saw) that demonstrates a leading from the front or setting the example. How has it impacted you to see those you look up to setting the example and leading the way? Have you ever had anybody give the right speech at the right time? If so who was and how did it motivate the team? How important is it to lead from the front? What would you do to create face time with your subordinates?
