Determination and Reaching Goals
What impressed and inspired the team the most today, was her shear will power and her hunger to challenge herself in her quest to achieve this lofty goal.
When asked how she overcame fear and doubt, which would have led many a person to give up, she said her family was a great inspiration and support for her. She also talked about the importance of the leadership skills of those leading the expeditions.
Leadership Skills in Business
Leah also met with the Diamond IT leadership team where she addressed the similarities between leading in business and leading a climbing summit, with the common thread coming down to communication. While lack of communication may not be life threatening in business as it is on the mountain it can be detrimental to the success and longevity of a business. Having started her own successful business over 20+ years ago, we have no doubt Leah is a great leader in her own right.
Thank again Leah for providing such inspiration and perspective!
from all the Diamond IT team
