I’m Adi Ignatius with Nancy Koehn. You know it was Shackleton, he disregarded advice, like maybe you shouldn’t go so far south because of the ice floes. That’s a very good way of characterizing it. Shackleton understands that. Stalwarts like Frank Wild, Tom Crean (above) and Ernest Joyce were mostly rootless men, living out of a kitbag or drifters looking for a role in life. Some of them are in Asia and whatnot. And by the way, this is the hardest thing in the world to try to get us all back, but this is the greatest mission of my life.

They all make it home, where they are met by a world completely different than the one they left. NANCY KOEHN: A combination, I think of again, frequent Town Hall meetings with the group. They have three lifeboats that they’d taken off the ship before it sank. However, the origins of the ad are very obscure. That’s the essence of what he did. What have I got in this enlisted man? One of the first books for this ad to appear in was The 100 Greatest Advertisements: 1852-1958 written by Julian Watkins in 1949. That fails to reach the South Pole. Because teams aren’t just kind of set of resumes you’ve got. ADI IGNATIUS: So a few points. It’s a great analogy. Shackleton got that kind of thing as well. He didn’t own it publicly, but he didn’t have the luxury because he had to keep the men’s faith in him, and a public admission, a public confession, at that moment in the naval hierarchy of early 20th Century, British seaman and scientists would not have worked.

There were presentations. To head back to the whaling station where they had warned Shackleton about the ice being too thick. He looks confident. So Shackleton didn’t use this language, but here’s what he did and I’ll say a word about how.

I mean this is by far and away the most — I’m a Historian. ADI IGNATIUS: But what about owning them? All rights reserved. So this fails, but Shackleton wants more. Nancy welcome. And a lot of those decisions in leadership involve displeasing or not making everyone happy. ADI IGNATIUS: So they make it. I gotta create stability for them. At one point, close to the end of the journey a huge storm erupts in that part of the South Atlantic. And, as you just said.

Can anyone help me get right with this anxiety?” He never does that. Some of the descendents of his men remember being told their ancestors responded to an ad Shackleton placed in the paper, but this was likely a recollection based on reading the ad rather than something they were actually told. The date seems to have been confused with when Shackleton announced his Nimrod expedition in a letter to the editor: Sir,–It has been an open secret for some time past that I have been desirous of leading another expedition to the South Polar regions. Sometimes we just talked about the seal meat that cook just made. Great leaders are made, not born. He was arguably reckless, or a little bit cavalier. He didn’t always know the answer, but he is not showing up with his team saying, “Hey guys, I didn’t sleep well. NANCY KOEHN: I think it’s got parts of both if you will. They can’t sustain it. I think all great leaders have a big element of what they do that’s very personal to them. That’s exactly what he’s doing.

ADI IGNATIUS: When I interview people should I have them tell me a joke and sing a little song and just get a sense of their ability to respond to a weird request? There was no Johnson & Johnson kind of moment with Jim Burke the CEO –. Maybe a little bit more than a little, but he heads south. Who would answer such an ad, which Shackleton placed in a London newspaper seeking recruits for his 1914 Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition? Driven by exploration and innovation, our company is built on the life and values of polar titan Sir Ernest Shackleton and exists to inspire and equip people to live courageously. NANCY KOEHN: Absolutely. His ship, the Endurance, never reached Antarctica. And Shackleton waits a month, waiting for the ice to kind of clear and it doesn’t, and he sets off.

Full as a tick.” So he understands in this empathic intuitive way that my most important resource is my men’s self-belief and their belief in their group ability to get home safely. He is starting to drink. They mixed. But he does it for everyone so that the man who he sees flagging isn’t embarrassed, isn’t called out, isn’t singled out. I mean we, I think we demand that our leaders own their mistakes. He does it, and the idea is energy, food, feeding and watering is something that bolsters your spirits. He’s showing up. I mean part of it was his own posture and continence, but how did he connect with the people that they believed that about themselves? There was no, you know, it’s my fault, or I take responsibility. It is he in a sense rising into how service to others can make us our best selves, make us our strongest. Elmore says: Sir Ernest Shackleton when he was about to set out on one of his expeditions, printed a statement in the papers, to this effect: ‘Men wanted for hazardous journey to the South Pole.

People don’t buy Harvard Business School cases to sell you history. So he has, all the way through this story, has the men on routines. That is what they were living in.

There’s a moment when the men are so miserable and he’s so worried about as he called it, morale, that he says, order up double rations for four days. They have to wait for it to melt, and if the ship survives being held in a vice that long, there’s very, if it survives they may get back to the coast, but he thinks increasingly as the days becomes weeks and the weeks become months into 1915, that their expedition is over. ADI IGNATIUS: OK. And that is a very interesting pivot moment for Shackleton. NANCY KOEHN: Absolutely. 1. He carries himself carefully. ADI IGNATIUS: That to me is one of the biggest takeaways for anytime that, you know, there’re plenty of people who rise to the top, get the top job and then they’re not present.

He hired for attitude and trained for skill. What have I got in this scientist? Really important lesson today as volatility, pace of change increases. But he now has another issue, and this is really important for leaders today.

So when he sees a man’s, for example, energy flagging and this happened a number of times, over the course of the time that they were stranded, he will order up hot milk for everyone. For the next two years, he kept his crew of 27 men alive on a drifting ice cap, then led them in their escape. And how does that happen?

I don’t have to pay you from the moment the ship goes down.” He says, “I’m going to pay you out of my own pocket. But somehow, they make it to South Georgia Island. So there’s an element of not I. I’m not going to be the man who sees 27 men and myself die on the ice. I know it because I’ve been studying it for 25 years. Right? The seas are really rough. Way too remote. He’s incredibly interesting to people today and I think a lot of it has to do with who he became in a very turbulent situation.
