Episode Description

The buzz: “Impossible is not a fact. It is an opinion” (Muhammad Ali). The harrowing life-and-death decisions made by early Antarctic explorers reveal insights — not just for their own survival in extreme environments, but also applicable to our 21st century personal and business decision making. Reality check: Not all their decisions had good results. Yet, even during the most trying circumstances imaginable, very few men died. How was this possible? And what can we learn from their decision-making to help with our modern-day business and personal lives? The experts speak. Brad Borkan, SAP: “Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm” (Sir Winston Churchill). David Hirzel, Author: “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure” (Colin Powell). Join us for When Your Life Depends On It: Decision-Making Stories from Antarctic Heroes.
