Book review

Book review

We tend to prefer success stories and we judge by the outcome and the performance instead of evaluating the whole process. The Endurance-expedition of Shackleton in 1914 was the most successful failure of the world.

Not only the Endurance-story but the whole life of Shackleton is inspiring, even if it was not him who explored the South Pole. The secret of failure was the ice, the secret of success was Shackleton’s mostly instinctive human resource-centered leadership style.

It all suited him: the selection and recruitment, the job enrichment, creating the knowledge management-system or crisis intervention, just as well the theories of Hersey and Blanchard, Pink, Parker, Kotler, Handy, Lencioni or others which could be implemented on leadership practice.
Reading this book is not quite easy but the message and the content and moreover what we may learn from it worth the time.
