Vlog – Coaching Tip #7 – Proxy Leadership

Interesting conversation in the latest orgmindset podcast with Alex and Andrew. In this Coaching Tip I expand on a topic they discussed regarding organizational anti-patterns.

*my coaching videos are unscripted and unedited. Apologies for my ugly mug. This particular video was done in one take. Some, I’ve redone a few times because I said something incredibly amazing, but didn’t want to share. I don’t have time to retake videos. I’d prefer to get something good down and post the content. 🙂

FAA’s – Administrator Huerta Offers Farewell to MMAC Employees as His Term Comes to a Close

As the month of November comes to a close, so will Michael Huerta’s time as the FAA Administrator, as his 5-year term ends, January 2018. Aeronautical Center employees were pleased that the Administrator chose to make one last visit to the Center as he finishes out his 7-year career with the FAA. During his two-day visit to the Center, he and Max Slutsky, his special assistant participated in a Town Hall meeting where the Administrator recognized and praised the critical work being accomplished across the Center, and for the employees’ ability to stay focused on the core mission of providing the safest and most efficient aerospace system in the world. The Administrator commented, “Think about our narrative now vs. where it used to be. Think about the number of aircraft registered. It took us 100 years, to get to the point where 300,000 aircraft were registered; it took us only two years to get to having 1-million aircraft registered. We are more flexible and nimble as an agency than ever before.” Michelle Coppedge, Aeronautical Center Director, provided opening remarks and commended his efforts in providing invaluable support to the Center over the years. “He’s really stood behind many of our accomplishments as aviation has changed a lot in just 5 years,” Coppedge said. She highlighted several advances that have occurred during his term: the growth of the new common Air Route Surveillance Radar; renovations of the Systems Training Building; providing urgent support that was needed when the agency needed to hire over 1,400 air traffic controllers while receiving 29,000 job applications; and providing support during some of the state’s and nation’s catastrophic storms.
