Episode 4

What can a mountaineer teach us about building character?

Hap Klopp

On this episode, our special guest, Hap Klopp sits down with us to share some gems from his life as an adventurer, executive, academic, author and force behind the brand that is The North Face, where he served as President and CEO for over 20 years. He answers the big question of how this current moment (pandemic, poverty, and protest) demands us to shift our approaches to leadership and the beauty in a ‘planetary well-being’ perspective, over a ‘profits as paramount’ approach to business. He offers insightful invitations for the leader in all of us, to have a creative wide- open, fun approach business. He’s the author of the highly acclaimed book on leadership: “Conquering The North Face, an Adventure in Leadership” and a recently released best selling book on business in Silicon Valley entitled, “Almost”, both available on Amazon.
