WIL 2014: Leadership lessons from Mt. Everest (video)
Adventurer, best-selling author, and today’s Women in Leadership Institute™ keynote faculty member Alison Levine has literally reached the top of the highest peaks on every continent. But as you’ll see in this video clip, failing in her first attempt to climb Mt. Everest might have taught her the most valuable lesson.

So let’s hear from you. What have you learned from your less-than-perfect moments?
Alison Levine is a history-making adventurer, New York Times best-selling author, and thought-provoking professor of leadership. She not only served as team captain of the first American Women’s Everest Expedition, but she has also climbed the highest peak on each continent and skied to both the North and South Poles—a feat known as the Adventure Grand Slam, which fewer than forty people on the world have achieved. Levine currently serves as an adjunct professor at the United States Military Academy at West Point where she lectures on the topic of leadership.
