Christian Boucousis was an F/A-18 fighter pilot with the Australian RAAF. Today Boo teaches simple yet powerful techniques the RAAF honed to get work done faster, more successfully and with precision. At Mach 1.5 fighter pilots don't have much time to think. They prepare on the ground to take on anything in the air, then get their job done. This episode is about making clearer decisions, agility, and debriefing effectively. Furthermore, it is about putting plans into action with more speed, precision and success.   When people ask Boo what he does, how does he like to reply? Boo's medical discharge and finding purpose after being a Jet Fighter Pilot There are 500 items for a Jet Fighter Pilot to remember - why checklists are an essential SOP? "How we train is how we fight," yet in business we don't. Are we giving the advantage to our competitor? How do we ensure the mission has been heard and understood before leaving the briefing room? How do we create clarity around what we need to do? The power of the Blue Angels approach to the debrief The Afterburner process for a genuinely effective debrief - nameless, rankless. RESULT, REASON RESPONSE Taking ownership by the Blue Angels: "I'll fix my safeties, and I am glad to be here." Learning to take ownership of what went wrong and getting on to fix it An effective debrief can improve performance by 300%. Are some debriefs too subjective, too many peoples opinions? What is the Red Team? What's chasing the needle and does that show up in business? What's the OODA Loop process?  Boo has been conditioned to live and deal with stress as an elite jet fighter pilot. Does Boo need stress to feel fulfilled today? Why is it that elite performers can't take the lessons and all they know is to be the best of the best in the air? How does Boo see failure? When a pilot is thinking checklists, they will take the attitude of "more how." What's the formula?
