When Kevin Vallely isn’t working his “day job” as an architect, he can be found on one of many adventures, such as breaking the world record for the fastest unsupported trek to the geographic South Pole.
When Amy Posey, a management consultant and former leadership expert with Deloitte, isn’t at her desk, she’s might be found paragliding, or joining Kevin in crossing Baffin Island in the Canadian High Arctic in winter, on foot.
Both Kevin and Amy describe themselves as extreme adventures, and in their new book Wild Success, both offer seven key lessons business leaders can learn from their experiences pushing themselves to do the seemingly impossible.
Although host Dean Rotbart has never raced to the South Pole or soared hundreds of feet off the ground in a harness below a fabric wing, this week he quizzes both Kevin and Amy on the extreme adventure of entrepreneurship.
