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
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?
