In this episode, Christina Martini, Octavian Pantis, and Captain Emil Dobrovolschi discuss:

  • How Emil and Octavian’s backgrounds prepared them for and translate into a career focused on writing about and consulting on leadership.
  • The bedrock of communication. 
  • Utilizing technology properly for the best outcome. 
  • Moving from copilot to captain. 


Key Takeaways:

  • In times of change, people are looking for ideas and inspiration. 
  • As a professional, try to be prepared all the time, for every flight, not just for the exam. 
  • Just because we have the technology to do so, we should not try to be in 2, 3, or even 4 places at once. 
  • If you want your flight to be good, you need your crew to be with you - the same thing in business. If you want your product or service to be good, you need your team to be with you. 


"If you want to be a communicator, you need to be present in that conversation, whether it's on the phone or live and in person, whether you're on the sending side or on the receiving side." — Captain Emil Dobrovolschi
