In the world of business books, we frequently deal in metaphors. Next time you’re wandering through a bookstore (or, more likely, scrolling around an online bookseller), check out the variety of parallels drawn between leadership and another field. We’ve had comparisons between leadership and the military, as well as the baseball diamond, among others. In the case of the military metaphors, the authors are generally individuals who have bravely served in the armed forces. However, the hands-on knowledge of other authors is often speculative.
This is not the case with Chris Warner. As co-author (with management expert Don Schmincke) of High Altitude Leadership, Warner knows a thing or two about K2 … and Everest … and Kiliminjaro … and several mountains I can’t pronounce. He’s scaled some of the highest peaks in the world and gained an incredible wealth of knowledge along the way. Schmincke and Warner offer a great combination of management experience, business insight and original ideas.
And now they’re about to speak directly to Soundview subscribers!
On Monday, May 4 at 1:00 p.m. (EST), Warner and Schmincke will be our special guests on Soundview Live. This 60-minute live coversation puts our subscribers in an interactive Web event with today’s top business authors. Warner and Schmincke will present key insights on leadership and success, whether on the world’s highest peaks or the boardrooms of corporate giants. This is followed by a question and answer session with subscribers. I’ve sat in on some of the production meetings, and I can tell you, Chris and Don are highly entertaining and very informative.
