My quest to reach the highest peaks in the world is similar to the strategies, risk analysis, leadership, and communication skills required for companies to overcome everyday challenges. It takes meticulous planning, an open and non-judgmental communication climate, and an effective team to endure months of hardship on some of the toughest mountains in the world. The team is never stronger than its weakest link.    

Ask yourself:
do you want to climb your "Mount Everest”,
or do you rather have it climbed?

Many people ask me if I have a death wish. I rarely hear: where do you get your energy and patience from? The key to success lies in the statement, "the result reflects the way you think."

As a child, I had an immense fear of heights and was haunted by the fear of death. A paradigm shift enabled me to climb the highest mountains in the world. I believe it's not about where you are but where you are going that will change your results. I encourage taking a proactive role instead of adapting the jargon "it’s never too late to give up." Remember that you will miss your target if your thoughts, speech, and behaviours are not aligned with your goal.

Fredrik talks about the importance of making the right decision under extreme pressure and stress.
Successful teams in the mountains have a well-defined goal, clear roles and an open communication climate 
because the team is never stronger than the weakest link.
