Learn from critical leadership experience
For more than 50 years, NASA’s Mission Control has earned a strong reputation for highly reliable decision making in critical situations. That legacy of high performance is a result of uncompromising leadership values.
When we learned to articulate and deliberately apply these leadership values outside of the rocket science, we discovered the same powerful performance throughout all of our management practices.

The triathlon of values, their interaction and results and the process to indelibly imprint them into your organization were all incredibly impactful to us.
Dr. Bob DeGroot
President, Sales Training International
Your presentation to the superintendents and educational leaders was excellent and very relevant to any organization, including school districts. The presentation focused on the importance of establishing a core set of values and trust, and how a change in culture transformed NASA. The story was compelling and inspirational.
John R. Thomas
Executive Director, Region 18 ESC
Fantastic presentation. Great insight into such an extraordinary mission.
Director of Operations, Ocean Energy Safety Institute (OESI)
Your presentation was excellent - I was talking about it to various coworkers (and my wife) throughout the rest of the day. Your presentation really drove home the importance of orienting the team (and the organization) around a core set of values, and illustrated how that translates into sound decision making logic.
I was also impressed with the "train like you fly and fly like you train" concept. Also, the rigor which you described - the simulations, repeated if needed until they went right, the detailed plans and contingency plans... Amazing!
The view you provided into what goes on in mission control was fascinating.
Vice President, global financial services firm
You delivered an excellent and thought-provoking talk, and you're the first of all the speakers I've seen to receive a set of perfect evaluations.

Your words were encouraging and inspiring .
As I reflect on your words and the idea of failure, I can relate to my professional career. When I sometimes feel like I have hit a ceiling, I will remember your words and experience and focus on knowing I do a good job and will continue to do the job well in hopes of being given more opportunities for professional growth.
