As Leaders we want to create a leadership culture that fully utilizes the capabilities of our team, fosters innovation and creates high performing teams. This program, led by two internationally acclaimed experts, will provide you with the insight and tools to do just that - with Real World examples from NASA's legendary Mission Control.
Dr. Walt Natemeyer will share the most effective concepts aimed at motivating and leading others to high performance and building highly effective teams. Paul Sean Hill, former NASA Director of Mission Operations, will show you how to apply these concepts and leverage the core ideas and leadership values from Mission Control – the same enabling leadership that has delivered "impossible" wins in human spaceflight for more than 50 years.
