Flying an Entrepreneurial Company

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

Pilots when flying at 30,000 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, flys 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.

Entreprenuers, capably “piloting” their organizations, is something to relate to!
