The right stuff: the ultimate leadership test
When two pilots close at 3000km/h at 50.000 feet above the ground before pulling 10gs there is simply no room for error or inefficiency.
To survive and be efficient in combat fighter pilots have to make the most out of every single mission, every single day of their career.
Pilots learn from their mistakes and constantly strive for perfection. They manage their team members efficiently and take decisions at Mach 2.
How would you perform?
Strap to your seat as the half day experience starts with a thirty minutes keynote conference tailored to your industry and company. Following a Q&A you will then form groups and start thinking as pilots in command.
We will go through a combat mission in enemy territory, from the HR and training side to the mission planning. From start up to air to air refueling or leadership decision you will be challenged in a role play of a unique type.
All the situations we will face and study have been lived in combat by “Até”. But the good news is that if he is still here today, you might manage to survive the flight too!
After the mission we will debrief it and discuss of to adapt the lessons learned in your industry, making sure everyone walks out with an immediate return on experience
