Robert Swan led a team to the North Pole and ice cap began to melt beneath their feet. Swan’s carefully-planned expedition, made up of eight people from seven countries, became a nightmare when the ice cap began to melt in April-four months earlier than usual. The group survived barely because of teamwork and Swan’s extraordinary leadership. Swan’s honesty, as well as his ability to maintain his poise, self-confidence, and sense of purpose amid life-threatening and constantly changing conditions, helped to nourish the spirit and motivation of the team. With the completion of the journey, Swan became the first person ever to walk to both the North and South Poles. Today, he recounts his adventures to the world, including business people hungry to learn what it means to be a leader in a dangerous and hostile world.
