Amelia Rose Earhart
With the odds stacked against her, Amelia not only trained to become a pilot, but to become the type of pilot to choose honor the person she was named after, Amelia Mary Earhart, by piloting a single-engine airplane (Pilatus PC-12NG) 28,000 Nautical Miles around the globe. To accomplish this, Amelia developed a flight plan all her own, and while reporting full-time as on air, TV helicopter reporter, completed private, instrument and commercial pilot training, crafted an entrepreneurial and strategic business plan to design, fund and market her around the world attempt, raised close to $2 million in partnerships with 28 corporations, founded and ran the Fly With Amelia Foundation, which sent numerous teenage girls to flight school, and more.
Today, Amelia Rose Earhart is a full-time speaker, podcast host, and artist living in Denver, CO who incorporates the lessons of her 2014 global flight into every aspect of her professional and personal life. Amelia is excited to share the remaining funds from the Fly With Amelia Foundation to another aviation charity helping to promote women in aviation and will be sharing exciting details soon. From the Air Force Thunderbirds, to the Reagan Library, to corporations like Capital One, Lockheed Martin and United Healthcare, Amelia’s list of clients who trust her message of agility continues to grow.
Amelia is currently submitting her manuscript, The Ups and the Downs of Turbulence, which she wrote with author Kristin Clark Taylor, during Winter of 2020. Memorabilia from Amelia’s flight around the world can be found at her permanent display at Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum in Denver, CO.
Lead Like a Pilot: Take on a Pilot’s Perspective to Navigate Change and Success with Agility
Pilots are known for their clear communication skills, decisiveness, situational awareness, information processing, workload management, and overall sense of personal responsibility.
These same skills are invaluable in today’s workplace, given the varied tasks and responsibilities each team member is required to perform, often in the work from home environment.
In this talk, each member of your team will learn immediate ways to think and act with a pilot in command mentality.Learn:
• How conducting “pre-flight” style team briefings can ensure understanding, preparedness and confidence among team members
• How to identify and avoid the five most hazardous attitudes to stress responses, and how to counter them with positive action
• How the use of checklists can free up working memory while building team trust and synchronicity
Own Your Airspace: How to Be Bold, Resourceful, and Agile in Uncharted Territory
In aviation, airspace is the environment where aircraft fly. In the professional world, the “airspace” in which we operate can be thought of similarly. When we own our airspace, we know where we’re going, who we’re sharing airspace with, and we fully understand the rules of the airspace in which we choose to fly. Only then can we begin to fly with confidence and direction.
In this talk, your team will learn how to see the big picture, strategically avoid potential storms and identify their own unique headings to fly, to truly “own their airspace”.Learn:
• The three levels of true situational awareness: the passenger, pilot and air traffic control perspective.
• To identify headwinds, tailwinds and crosswinds in terms of professional challenges and opportunities.
• To become comfortable flying “unusual headings” through a divergent creative thinking exercise.
- Learning to Love the Turbulence: Embracing Difficulty and Change Once Your Goal is Airborne
When we set our minds toward any big goal, we imagine creating our plan and executing it to completion. We tell ourselves that if we work hard enough, we will soar from Point A to Point B gracefully, leaving others to wonder how we ever pulled it off. We begin our journey and everything seems fine. The wind is at our backs and the view is spectacular. Suddenly, there's a terrifying jolt. We've been thrown off course by something we never saw coming: turbulence. Suddenly, our well thought out plan is thrown out the window. We are now in crisis mode. THIS was NOT supposed to happen. Which way is up? Who is on our team? Is there ANY safe place to land? This is the point where we have to ask ourselves if we are doomed for a crash landing or if we are willing to learn to love the turbulence.
