An inspirational story of business and personal change "Experiential education at its best! Jim's story pushes us to extend ourselves, to grow, to dream."----Wendy Pieh, Former Program and Executive Director of Outward Bound "A book that captures the heart and then goes on to snare the mind. If there is an unclimbed Mount Everest in your life, I highly recommend this book. It will first help you decide if you're on the right mountain; and then it will guide you to the top." ----H. John Greeniaus, President and CEO, Nabisco, Inc. Success. It's one of the most alluring words in our vocabulary. We dream about it. Plan for it. Chase after it. But just what is it we're really after? What really defines success? In 1988 Jim Hayhurst climbed to the top of the world. The monumental challenges he faced and the inspirational lessons he learned while conquering the slopes of Mount Everest led him to radically rethink the meaning of success. The Right Mountain is the riveting story of that climb. Hayhurst discusses the life--threatening experiences that affected each member of the team. He describes the critical choices that had to be made, and the lessons that were learned as a result. But this is much more than an adventure story. It is an inspirational odyssey in search of the true definition of success--on your own terms--in your career and in your personal life. Success lies not in the traditional trappings of power, money or prestige, but in what we believe as individuals, our core values. In The Right Mountain, Hayhurst shows us how to prioritize our core values and sustain them with personal accomplishments that lead to long--term success and satisfaction. Using the mountain as a striking metaphor, he shares profound lessons about incorporating the values of integrity, self--esteem, and respect for others into our daily personal and professional lives. * Each short chapter offers a vignette of a personal experience on the mountain that delivers a universal message applicable to every business and personal situation * End--of--book exercises help readers evaluate their personal core values JIM HAYHURST (Toronto, Ontario) is a successful business executive whose Hayhurst Group became one of the top advertising agencies in Canada. Formerly the chairman of Outward Bound Canada, he presents his seminar, The Right Mountain, to executives, and organizations around the globe.

About the Author

Jim Hayhurst is a father of three, and a successful business executive. Under his leadership, the Hayhurst Group of Companies grew to become one of the top three advertising agencies in Canada. He was also Chairman of Outward Bound Canada. In 1987, he founded The Hayhurst Career Centre, an organization that helps people squeeze more satisfaction out of life. In 1988, he participated in the Everest expedition that would change his life. He put together a slide show of his journey, and soon came to realize that this was much more than a travel story. He began to compare his experiences on the mountain with the challenges we all face in daily life, and found that his Everest climb was a powerful metaphor for defining success. Gradually, a valuable message took shape. He called that message The Right Mountain. Today, Jim Hayhurst presents The Right Mountain speech and slide show to businesses and organizations around the world, helping to change the lives to others.
