Are you a Pilot? - by Ravi Patel

 

A business associate commented that pilots have unique skills that could be useful for managing companies or projects. Could that be applied to entrepreneurial companies?

 

Pilots when flying at 35,000 feet have a macro view of their surroundings in relation to their aircraft. While having this unique perspective, pilots also pay attention to the micro details, tasks and checklists to ensure that the plane takes off, flies and lands safely and at the correct destination.

 

Entrepreneurs could definitely use such skills for ”flying” their organizations. Having the macro vision is essential in flying the company to its final destination. At the same time it is also necessary to be aware of the details to ensure that company is on course and at the right speed to reach and land on schedule at its destination.

 

Entrepreneurs capably “piloting” their organizations is akin to flying!
