In the corporate world, finding the balance is essential to any success. How about taking it one step further with an unforgettable team builing?

Eskil Rønningsbakken is an extreme artist from Stange, Norway. Rønningsbakken travels the world performing balancing acts at the tops of lethal drops, such as canyons and cliffs. His acts include tightrope walking between two hot air balloons in flightand doing a handstand on a pile of chairs balanced on a rock wedged in a crevice between two cliffs that were 3,500 feet tall. He practices yoga, meditation, and breathing techniques to stay focused, and prepares extensively for each act.

Rønningsbakken's current goal is to perform a one-handed handstand at the top of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which, as of January 2010, was the tallest man-made structure ever built. Explaining his motives, he says, "When you only have five fingers touching the building, you feel like you are flying." Experts expect wind speed will affect his ability to perform safely, as the building sways slightly in high winds.
