You may think we have little in common with those amazing pilots that fly the Red Arrows but you might be surprised….

Mission Excellence (www.missionexcellence.com) is a team of former Red Arrows, fighter pilots and training experts who now specialise in the development of leadership, teamwork and execution skills. They think these are the 3 most important elements for business success:

  • understanding leadership and followership behaviours
  • empowerment
  • debriefing

They cite debriefing as the single most powerful tool in the military environment that can be used with similar success in business. Which got me thinking:

  • When did we last debrief?
  • Do we do it regularly with clients?
  • Do we do it internally after every project?
  • Should we do more?

According to Mission Excellence: Debriefing is our single most powerful tool for improving performance – a combination of performance assessment, executive coaching and 360 feedback all rolled into one. It underpins both our constant striving for performance improvement, as well as being a key factor in leadership development.

Small mistakes, if not identified and addressed correctly, will eventually combine to result in poor performance and failure. Read the full article at http://www.trainingzone.co.uk/cgi-bin/item.cgi?id=174363 and get debriefing!
