Dose of Leadership with Richard Rierson | Authentic & Courageous Leadership Development


Mar 10, 2020

It’s inevitable that at some point in your life you will face a situation that will require you to remain calm under pressure.

Your child is choking, a customer is irate and irrational, a team member is not pulling his weight, you come upon a car accident, you fly your aircraft through a flock of birds on take-off and lose all of your engines…

How you respond to stressful situations will make or break you as a leader.

As leaders, you have no choice but to remain calm, regardless of the situation.  Therefore it’s required leaders learn how to compartmentalize their emotions and fear.

A compartmentalization technique I learned in aviation is what’s called “Hack the Clock”.

In this podcast, I discuss compartmentalization techniques that I learned in flight school that can help you remain calm in stressful situations.
