Lessons from Annapurna Winter expedition
Do your company and organization have the balls to go left when everyone else are going right?
Mastering the art of crisis-management and decision making is key if you want to survive an 8000 m climb. The constant seduction of how "perfect" your world will become if you reach the summit is always luring in the back of your head as you move closer to your goal. To resist this force, this suction that dilutes your mind is an ability that leaders must develop in our world with tremendous pressure and faster and faster changes.
The similarities between a climb and leading a project in a company is striking and many forget that a well-defined goal is paramount if you want to succeed. Whereas the summit is not the goal, it's only halfway.
In 2006 Fredrik Sträng embarked on a journey to scale the highest peak on every continent under 7 months.

The film captures the story of the 2008 tragedy on K2, and contains some of the most engaging life dramas that took place on the mountain during the 2008 season. The material is unique because Fredrik was on the mountain in person. It contains HD footage of the entire climbing season and the tragedy that took 11 lives. There are interviews with 3 members of the 2008 International K2 Expedition and the compelling perspective of climbers who were intimately involved with the events that unfolded during the summit attempt. It also includes an interview with Wilco Van Roojen who survived 2 nights in the Death Zone on K2.
