Soar to New Safety Heights: Lessons on Partnership, Focus & Leadership from an Air Force Fighter Pilot

Jeff “Odie” Espenship is a former U.S. Air Force A-10 fighter pilot and current international airline pilot who understands the unique challenges of those who work in high-risk and often dangerous work environments. When mishaps occur, we learn from them, but the real vision is in front of us. The pathway to a safer workplace is leadership creating and maintaining partnerships that foster job cultures that embrace zero shortcuts; the courage to speak up and listen; adherence to procedures; and admitting mistakes so others may learn from them. In this presentation, Espenship will share his story of tragically losing his brother in an aviation accident, plus he will discuss the life leadership and partnership lessons he’s learned so you can apply them at work and at home.
