Review

What can your team learn from top tier leaders at NASA Mission Control? Maybe more than you think. In Leadership from the Mission Control Room to the Boardroom, former NASA flight director Paul Hill tells the true story of the game-changing transformation of Mission Control's senior leadership team. Ride along on a journey of evolution as these executives rediscover the core purpose and values that had never left their organization. Hill's candor and intensity makes this a fascinating read for every leader!
-- KEN BLANCHARD, COAUTHOR OF THE NEW ONE MINUTE MANAGER(R) AND LEADING AT A HIGHER LEVEL

There is no higher-stakes environment than NASA's Mission Control. This incredible team's leadership journey -- and development of precise decision-making in the face of unbelievable pressure -- are inspiring. Filled with fascinating insights into spaceflight and leadership alike, every leader will find parallels to their own organization. Paul's incredible book is a must-have for anyone leading a high-performance team and an invaluable addition to any business library.
-- MARSHALL GOLDSMITH - THE THINKERS 50 #1 LEADERSHIP THINKER IN THE WORLD

This is an arresting work by a former NASA Flight Director with whom I was privileged to work during the Return-to-Flight of the Space Shuttle Program in 2005. Paul Hill takes the reader through NASA's legendary 'Mission Control' in a way not found in any other work with which I am familiar. From its origins in aircraft flight test, to the early days of the space program with Project Mercury, and on to the iconic time of Apollo, and from there to the Space Shuttle program, Paul Hill offers a view from the inside track to both laymen and space professionals. From there, he takes you to the business world outside of NASA, and shows how the principles and values of the Mission Operations Directorate apply in a far larger arena. No leader or manager can fail to benefit from the lessons captured here.
-- MICHAEL D. GRIFFIN, NASA ADMINISTRATOR, 2005-09 AND SCHAFER CORPORATION CEO

Paul Hill has written a stunning 'instructional manual' for business executives and leaders who want to learn from the best team on the planet: The men and women of NASA's Mission Control. For the first time, a leader of the Mission Operations Directorate of NASA shares the hard-won lessons of this world-famous organization and translates them into key principles and examples designed to hone a superior leadership team grounded in integrity and bedrock organizational values. Steeped in the lessons of history, rich with achievement and heart-rending loss, laser-focused on application and results, and above all a great narrative, this book, like its author, is one-of-a kind.
-- MARY LYNNE DITTMAR, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE COALITION FOR DEEP SPACE EXPLORATION AND FORMER MEMBER, HUMAN SPACEFLIGHT COMMITTEE, NATIONAL ACADEMIES OF SCIENCES, ENGINEERING AND MEDICINE

This engaging book tells the story of how NASA's renowned Mission Control evolved into an extraordinary team that directed many of the world's greatest technical triumphs. Equally important is Paul Hill's cautionary tale that sustaining excellence may be more difficult than attaining it. He shares how Mission Control learned the importance of articulating, modeling and nurturing its core values of technical truth, integrity and courage to maintain exceptional performance under adverse circumstances. Leaders from every organization will benefit from these vital lessons.
-- WALTER E. NATEMEYER, CHAIRMAN AND CEO, NORTH AMERICAN TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

From the Author

My sincere hope is that you will read this story, benefit from the tremendous strength found in the "real-time morality," take heed of our mistakes and the great risks we all face as managers and leaders, and leverage our experience in evolving your leadership environment into alignment with the culture that remains critical in the most difficult work Mission Control does.
 
You can take your team there the same way we did in MissionControl:  Choose to make the difference. Find and make peace with your individual and team awareness. Embrace the morality to reinforce mindfulness. Pass judgment and take action through transparency, value alignment, and engagement with your team.
 
Lead deliberately and lead well.
 
It ain't rocket science.
