NEWS CenterAlison Levine, History-Making Adventurer and TLDG Board Member, reveals leadership lessons in her newly released book, ON THE EDGE: THE ART OF HIGH-IMPACT LEADERSHIP
Tuesday, January 07, 2014
Whether she is on top of the world or working in the corporate and non-profit environments, Alison Levine is no stranger to success in challenging and extreme situations. Alison has survived sub-zero temperatures, hurricane force winds, sudden avalanches…and a career on Wall Street. In her new book ON THE EDGE—with a foreword by (Coach K, USMA ‘69)—she recounts key leadership lessons learned from navigating the corporate world and climbing the highest peak on every continent and skiing to both Poles (a feat known as the Adventure Grand Slam, which fewer than 40 people have accomplished.) She has done this in spite of having the challenging physical condition of Renaud’s disease and three heart surgeries.
Alison is a valued thought leader in today’s fast-paced, volatile world of leadership; she has the ability to take very serious situations and convey learning points candidly and with humor. ON THE EDGE is already receiving much recognition - Amazon named her book a “best book of the month” in the management and leadership category for January, and Barnes and Noble listed it as number 1 in the business category at the end of 2013.
Alison was also recently featured in Forbes and on CBS This Morning. Ever humble, she explains how leadership prowess is often assumedly given to corporate executives by virtue of position rather than by practical application.
Alison has achieved significant accomplishments, but, equally as laudable, is her passion to take what she has learned in the field, analyze it, and share it with leaders in all endeavors. TLDG is proud to have her as an active member of its Board of Advisors and faculty team.
