Translating Mission Control Leadership into the Boardroom
A key to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) mission control legacy of brilliant performance is a particular brand of leadership. Echoes of it can be heard at all levels of management, and most of the mission control organization’s management practices are effected by the very deliberate leadership culture that has evolved from this work.
This talk will describe the basic values of that particular brand of mission control leadership. The intent is to convey the direct connection between those leadership values and managing from the highly complex and technical, immediate risks in mission control to the less immediate but just as threatening enterprise level risks outside of that room.
