As a lawyer I read lots of material, and my read of FLY! by Captain Richard De Crespigny was one book I could not put down.
Remaining calm, pulling it all together, and drawing on his only available resources at a critical time, under pressure and with much at stake, is a monumental feat. Like running a court case, preparation is the key, and Richard and his crew were thankfully fully prepared for the events that unfolded on 4 November 2010.
Richard provides an insight into many areas, including resilience and teamwork, such lessons being directly transportable into business life, the boardroom and at home. I have encouraged my staff to read FLY! as I know those lessons will improve company culture and personal performance.
