Have you ever been late or almost missed something really important? Whether it’s with a friend or customer, good leaders need to stop showing up late or missing appointments. It strains relationships, is embarrassing, and can be detrimental (both personally and professionally).
A century ago, a man named Ernest Shackleton was one of the most renowned explorers of his time. He was a member of Captain Randolph Scott’s Discovery Expedition to the Antarctic in 1901–04 and led the Nimrod Expedition to the Antarctic in 1907–09, when he and three companions marched farther south than any human had ventured before. He was knighted by the king of England for that effort.
