Steve Jones: Managing Antarctica
‘You’ve got to avoid getting injured in order to be effective tomorrow’.
Expedition Leader, Operations Manager, Polar Guide, Consultant and Lecturer Steve Jones joins us in this episode to discuss his work in Antarctica, and the lessons we can take to the frontline.
Alongside WEM Education Lead Will Duffin, Steve considers the keys to isolation success, including the importance of personal admin to allow you to live in the moment. Steve also considers the impact of ego, personality and your emotional wake, and how we can all do more to ensure we are conscious and thoughtful of our impact.
Steve also takes us through some of his extraordinary, edge-of-your-seat rescues – from Snowdon to Antarctica – and the importance of effective leadership in success.
Steve talks transferrable skills, from acknowledging and working within your limits to admitting that even good planning has gaps and the importance for personnel on the frontline to be empowered to make changes and to reform procedures rapidly.
