Top Gun Leadership for PMPs

by Waldo Waldman

How to Build a Culture of Courage in Business and Life

  • How can you instill a climate of ownership in your organization so that every person feels like they are accountable and responsible for its success?
  • What tools can you employ to motivate the members of your organization to focus on the mission rather than themselves?
  • How can you help create an organization where change and innovation are not met with fear, but embraced with courage and respected as a tool to beat the competition?

The key to building a high-powered organization that encourages innovative thinking, loyalty to the mission, effective communication, and a relentless commitment to excellence lies with its leadership. In this high energy, multimedia workshop, Waldo highlights the difference between managing people, and leading them to be responsible, empowered and confident wingmen! What results is a more productive and efficient organization with superior morale that can rapidly overcome challenges in a competitive marketplace.

Waldo discusses proven leadership principals based on his experience as a graduate of the US Air Force Academy, as a seasoned Air Force officer and combat decorated fighter pilot, and experienced businessman. Relentless self-discipline, passion for the mission, dedicated teamwork, and a commitment to excellence are just a few key elements of this engaging and highly interactive seminar.

Course Agenda

  • TOP GUN ATTITUDE: “Attitude plus Action determines Altitude” 
    • Push it up! Always be committed to taking action and giving 100%. A passionate and enthusiastic mindset is the by- product of training, focus, and a commitment to excellence. This is the foundation for a leader’s winning attitude 
    • Accountable – You Have the Aircraft! You’re in charge of the results. 
    • Courage – Leadership is not about being fearless. It’s taking action despite fear. Leaders turn their Fear into Focus and have courage to break the fear barriers. 
    • Fly to your strengths – focus on what you’re good at and ‘outsource’ the rest. 
  • TOP GUN VISION: “Beware of Distractions Disguised as Opportunities!”
    • Keep focused on your long term target/objective and what you’re fighting for.
    • Share your vision - How do you see the world and your responsibilities?
    • Set expectations – let your wingmen know what to expect from you & be consistent.
    • How do your wingmen see you? Are you the same in and out of work?
    • Learn the vision of your wingmen – find out where they want to go and see the world through their eyes before asking them to commit to your vision.
  • TOP GUN TRAINING TO WIN: “You Fight Like You Train!” Chair Fly – 
    • Mission Rehearse: Win your missions in your mind first.
    • “Work harder on yourself than you do on your job.” Jim Rohn
    • Sharpen your sword through Education, Technology, and Relationships.
    • Promote risk taking, creativity, and innovation... complacency kills relationships.
    • Who’s in your formation? Who are you spending time with outside of work. Nurture those relationships that lift you up. Jettison those who drag you down!
    • Recognize and Reward your Top Guns – They are your future leaders!
  • TOP GUN COMMUNICATION: “It’s not what you say or do, it’s what they perceive.”
    • Listen – Your wingmen must come to you and ask for help when they need it. Be mindful of the questions you ask of your wingmen. They are listening.
    • LBWA – Leadership by Walking Around – Walk on the flight line and get dirty.
    • Ask questions, be approachable, and let them hear the good and bad news from you.
    • Briefing – Set objectives, gather intelligence, assign roles, and contingency plan
    • De-Brief – Follow-up and Follow-through. Pass on lessons learned to organization.
  • TOP GUN CORE VALUES: “They won’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”
    • BREAK LEFT!- Will your wingmen listen to you when it really counts?
    • AF Core Values: i. Integrity 1st ii. Service before Self iii. Commitment to Excellence
    • Watch your “Over-G’s.” Small cracks in your airframe turn into big cracks.
    • Honor your word & admit when you’re wrong! Be willing to say “I don’t know.”
    • Value wingmen as people first, and as employees second. Make them feel worthy.
    • Your values will be tested. Face the Brutal Truth and know when to abort. It takes courage and empathy for those you serve to do the right thing
