The former Director of Mission Operations at NASA shows you how to combat management weaknesses, lead stellar teams and pull off miracles in your workplace using lessons from Mission Control
Failure is always an option, and so is choosing to lead your team into an environment that helps them to avoid catastrophe and pull off miracles. For more than fifty years, NASA's Mission Control has done just that.
Take the ultimate insiders look at the leadership values and culture that made that track record possible. Paul Sean Hill paints a vivid picture, candidly portraying the critical cultural connections in human spaceflight triumphs and failures. By demonstrating how his Mission Control team learned to steward this culture into their management roles, Paul provides a guide for any organization to boost their own performance by building on their core ideas and values that have delivered 'impossible' wins for decades.
Beyond the rocket science and leadership theory, Paul shows how these ideas are the enablers in solving "impossible" problems at all levels. He'll show you how Mission Control does it, and more importantly, he demonstrates how you can apply the core ideas and leadership values from Mission Control in your organization.
Whether failure means cost and schedule overruns, quality reduction, loss of market share, bankruptcy - or putting someone's life a risk, how we lead can determine whether even small mistakes are dealt with or are left to snowball out of control and destroy an enterprise.
