The Apollo Program
Discover how to lead when failure is not an option
The Conference Board Apollo Leadership Experience provides unique access to the Johnson Space Center in Houston and the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. You will go behind-the-scenes to learn how leaders who changed the course of history stayed calm under extreme stress, created technology where none existed before, and led their teams from crisis to triumph.
Imagine you have been given a mandate by your CEO to lead an organization you know little about. How would you build your management team?
What if a colossal mistake happened under your watch? How would you get your team back on course?
In the face of a completely unexpected turn of events, could you lead your organization to its finest hour?
These were not hypothetical questions during the 10-year period when America built its space program – a time of unprecedented innovation, the achievement of one of the world’s most memorable moments, and a near-disaster that profoundly tested NASA’s leadership and culture.
For executives faced with dramatic turns in their own organizations, this rich history offers leadership insights that are unparalleled.
In Houston, you will sit at the same consoles inside Mission Control where legendary Flight Director Gene Kranz led the effort to safely return the three astronauts of Apollo 13. And you will hear stories of other leaders and missions that surpass typical business case studies. Together, they reveal the art of tackling the unknown, building a culture of innovation, empowering teams, and overcoming setbacks.
In this program, participants and teams will discover how to:
- Articulate a clear picture of success to help your team work toward a common goal
- Cultivate the agility to inspire confidence and turn setbacks into opportunities
- Build your management team to compensate for weaknesses and play to strengths
- Establish a culture to enable your organization to endure over time
- Understand how to create an environment that inspires both radical and incremental innovation
