How would you define your leadership style as the Captain of a flight crew?
One of the best things that always fascinates me about flying an aircraft is the opportunity to lead my crew. The excitement and thrill of undertaking responsibilities that define the safety of my aircraft, my crew, and my passengers, is my drive for a successful leadership as the Captain of a flight crew.
If I were the Captain, I would describe my leadership as decisive and direct, always supported by clear communication. As a leader, I would always trust my crewmates to do the right thing and I would assign them responsibilities that I know they are capable of undertaking. In my opinion, a good leader should not and does not micromanage and hence once I have allotted them tasks, I would step down and let them do their thing. That does not mean I won't be willing to provide them the support wherever they need it.
