Safety is critical to your operation.
To mitigate risk, you manage your crews’ reactions;
To manage their reactions, you influence their thoughts;
To influence their thoughts, you must manage your own emotions.
Aviation success involves a unique set of skills: the ability to work effectively in a closely confined space for hours; long periods of time spent away from home; adapting, adjusting and quickly acclimating to sudden and unexpected changes. SMS and IS-BAO are geared towards safer skies and higher productivity.
People interaction problems are not covered in recurrent training. Strong behavior situational awareness skills inside and outside the cockpit have become the defining characteristics of high performing and successful flight departments.
React and the situation manages you. Respond and you are in control.
You and your crew need relevant and realistic techniques based on real-world events that have proven and effective results. You want systematic methods and processes you can immediately put into practice.
How do you get these methods and techniques?
Dr. Shari’s Human Factors/CRM sessions integrate actions and behaviors, critical thinking, conflict and emotions that allow every member of your flight department to participate in the discussions. The results: A higher level of team performance both inside and outside the cockpit.
