Apr 6, 2022

We begin to explore the role of human factors in mishaps. Training mishaps unfortunately occur, the development of self awareness is critical in personal and professional development, and can reduce injury and worse from training mishaps. Mission safety, team and personal safety are enhanced by self awareness, risk management and taking ego out of the decision making process. This podcast with a USAF SME sets the stage for some studies we are doing after observiing the human factor role in mishaps.

Happy New Year

That Others May Live

Dec 27, 2021

I have heard some honest discussions from Operators who prioritized Career over Fatherhood. You can do both, it just has to be a conscious effort.

Marcus is doing research and creating a practice to coach men how to be better Dads. This is a phenomenal idea, parenting does not always come naturally, and having a coach may be just the answer. In this 2 part discussion Marcus addresses:

1. Creating a Dad-Identity- seeing yourself as a Dad; understanding the importance of the role.

2. Consistency- discipline, routines, keeping promises.

3. Importance of play.

4. Not perfect, PRESENT-putting Dad time on the schedule; focusing attention on them; listening.

Holiday season is an important time to reflect on family, and what we can re commit ourselves to.

I hope this is meaningful during this time. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
