Become a better pilot for your projects, for your people and even in life outside work by using valuable principles from aviation. You might be flying through turbulent times today – uncertainty, a lot of change, higher expectations from you – but all these can be handled well and the Dark Cockpit book will show you how.

Dark Cockpit is an aviation concept. It is the term we use for the situation when, except for the ambient and instrument lighting, no other light is on – no CAUTION lights (amber), no WARNING lights (red) and so on.

Dark Cockpit means everything is fine and working as planned.

• Bring clarity, boost morale and achieve results through your communication;

• Always have a plan and be prepared for whatever can go wrong;
• Meet the 4 requirements of a true professional;
• Develop responsibility, competence and leadership in those around you;
