Setting your vision, mission and values, the foundation of your company and flight department along with your leadership and your actions, is simply the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Creating and sustaining them are two completely separate actions; if they are easy to create, they may be difficult to sustain. If they are time-consuming to create, they can be less complicated to sustain. Are your flight department mission and vision statements integrated with your personal and professional leadership mission, vision and values? If not, what happens when you have to choose one over the other? Are they an accurate reflection of what you do and how you interact with others – passengers and peers, clients and contractors, handlers and FBO personnel? Clear vision and mission statements, and living your values, aids in implementing and supporting behaviors that boost safety, cohesiveness, process improvement, and adjusting to an environment that requires quick adaptations.

Your role as a leader is strategic – keeping an eye on the overall picture and identifying any gaps or inconsistencies. For others it is tactical – how do you demonstrate the values and follow through on the vision and mission? Values become desires, these desires become reasons for your actions. Setting SMART/CLEAR goals can certainly work to remove uncertainty in tentative situations. They also prime your mind for smoother decision-making and problem-solving processes.

Because values are human-related, and people are needed to achieve the vision and satisfy the mission, we will focus on behaviors, motivators, empowerment and creating a culture that supports your vision, mission and values statements, and sustains the highest level of safety, ethical decision-making, and confidence.

This course fulfills NBAA PDP objective L1.
