is the author of the award-winning books Care to Dare: Unleashing Astonishing Potential Through Secure Base Leadership and Hostage at the Table: How Leaders Can Overcome Conflict, Influence Others.
Why do some leaders overcome impossible barriers, go beyond unbearable pressure and frustration, and persevere in order to achieve outcomes seemingly beyond reach when others would give up? The answer to that question has never been clearer. Through their desire for relentless improvement, leaders at the edge can unlock the highest levels of performance from themselves and others, making work a more exciting place to be. Leading at the edge enables people to "play to win" rather than simply "playing not to lose."
