About Guest:  

Octavian Pantis and Captain Emil Dobrovolschi are authors of the new book Dark Cockpit: How to Communicate, Lead, and Be in Control at All Times Like an Airline Captain. Octavian & Capt. Emil wrote this book as a tool to explain the tie-in between aviation and leadership across many facets of life -- and to explain in layman’s terms the concepts behind each action/decision being made in the dark cockpit. There is a key tie-in to aviation and leadership – communication. Pilots are communication experts – they can pass a message without using micro-gestures between co-pilots and an ever-changing flight crew. Communication or not being clear with your asks can have disastrous effects. With today’s more limited face-to-face interactions, it’s critical that we maintain and excel at becoming better communicators.
