The Mountain Within August 8, 2011 : 2:58 PM

Herta Von Stiegel, the founder and CEO of Ariya Capital Group, has put together a wonderful new book entitled, The Mountain Within: Leadership Lessons andInspiration for Your Climb to the Top. Far from your typical leadership book, Hera draws upon the lessons she learned from leading a group of 28 climbers, including seven disabled people, to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro for charity. In addition, she interviews a wide-array of leaders and businesspeople from Kay Unger (a fashion designer) to Sam Chisholm (an Australian media executive). My colleague, David Blood, and I also participated.
