8:50 AM By Endurance, We Conquer: Leadership Lessons in IT

What is it that enables leaders and teams to overcome conditions of extreme adversity? What enables people to work together to overcome insurmountable obstacles? What are the specific things that a leader can do to create a cohesive team that can beat the odds? Sir Ernest Shackleton has been called "the greatest leader that ever came on God's earth, bar none" and yet most people don’t even know of him or the leadership lessons that are still relevant today. While his story itself is incredible, what makes this a remarkable lesson on leadership is that to a man, the crew gave sole credit to Shackleton for not only their survival, but for making the endeavor an enjoyable time. Come hear how you can take the leadership lessons learned from one of the “greatest failures” in exploration, and apply them to make you successful in your career in IT.  During our Day 2 Keynote, we’ll explore:
  • Leveraging lessons from your “greatest failures”
  • Collaborating through extreme adversity
  • Creating cohesive teams built to beat the odds
  • How to motivate and lead a team that strives to thrive, not just survive
