Todd Skinner sees climbing mountains as a natural metaphor for business challenges. To climb a mountain you must know how to define your objective, plan the best strategy, prepare your team, and surmount any obstacles on the way to the summit. This book takes the reader through this process in ten stages that apply to both real and metaphorical mountains. Skinner explains how to stay true to your vision no matter what happens, what tools you need to carry, and which preconceptions you need to leave behind. Skinner weaves these lessons into a compelling narrative, featuring the heart-stopping action of climbing the sheer rock face of Trango Tower in the Himalayas.
