While driving home from a busy shift I recently listened to a new SMACC podcast Dangers of the Deep: Exploration Medicine by Dr. Glenn Singleman who recounts his his experiences as physician to James Cameron and his team who explored the depths of the Mariana trench.
Two great insights from Dr. Singleman were to consider how explorers are likely to die and how to mitigate this risk. He also suggested developing a detailed and logical plan of action that can be defended in the event of an accident. Great food for thought.

Also check out this video of James Cameron talking about how he inspires and motivates his teams.
