Brace for Impact Experience

Captain Sully’s Inspiring True Story – the Miracle on the Hudson!

Flight 1549 (the “Sully” story) is the backbone of the Brace for Impact Experience.
But the experience is much more than the story of a fateful landing.

The Brace for Impact Experience focuses on how executives lead themselves, their teams, and their organizations in the midst of the unexpected, the unplanned, and the unpredictable.

We start with the Hogan Leadership Assessments (see below) to help you understand how you respond to adversity.  Then, you’ll explore why some leaders embrace and overcome adversity while others flounder.  The case studies on selected leaders capture the essence of the challenges you might face.  As a result of participating, you will be better prepared to anticipate, manage through, and lead out of adversity.

Join us for one of our upcoming public programs or contact us to discuss customizing a private program for your team.
