Amundsen's creates a Vision of Possibility that is "no piece of cake."
In possibly the most wonderfully creative scene of any vision being shared, Amundsen has his cook and closest confident, Lindstrom, prepare a cake for their mid-winter celebration in June 1911. On it is a map of their journey to the South Pole. Amundsen takes a tiny Norwegian flag stuck on a toothpick and he plants it firmly into the cake at the spot designated as the South Pole adding that we must be here by Christmas. There is intensity and humour; Amundsen has defined the goal in terms of what must be achieved and by when. There is the clear vision and the commitment to that vision. Leadership exemplified and masterful in every way.
