‘Miracle on the Hudson’ is the story of Sully Sullenberger landing US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River after losing all engine power, saving all 155 passengers. Many believed that landing was an impossible task, but his experience as an Air Force pilot, especially his glider training, and nearly 30 years as a commercial pilot prepared him to make the decision to make that heroic landing. It was Sully’s situational experience and understanding of his proven abilities that created a miracle rather than a tragedy. When you read a book, sit in a class, or attend a seminar on leadership you gain a lot of great information, but you cannot treat a book, class, or seminar as a blueprint for developing leaders who can land a plane that has lost all engines. Education and training will get you in the cockpit, but if you want to land a plane without power you need an experienced leader who will share everything they know and coach you through real-life challenges that will stretch you but not break you.
