Upward Bound: Original Accounts of How Business Leaders Reached Their Summits : Successful mountaineering requires intense individual strength, dedicated teamwork, and a willingness to take risks. And it's no coincidence that many leaders in management are avid mountaineers who have discovered the powerful leadership lessons that climbing can deliver. Upward Bound brings together a remarkable team of nine writers equally at home among the high peaks and in the corridors of corporate power, including Good to Great author Jim Collins, legendary climber and outdoor clothing entrepreneur Royal Robbins, and Stacy Allison, the first American woman to summit Mount Everest. While most people will never find themselves in the thin air of the world's highest places, Upward Bound brings those places down to earth for anyone seeking the path to his or her own summit. Whether it's up the career ladder or toward a creative peak, Upward Bound addresses the fundamental question of why we climb, while capturing the power of mountains to instruct as well as inspire.
