In this episode, Dick Richardson returns to HR Studio Podcast to discuss leadership lessons from the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon, the subject of his new book. What HR leaders can learn from NASA about implementing a vision, including acquiring the necessary leadership skills, and overcoming human biases that can interfere with success. Dick explains ‘perceptual fraction’ and how it can be used in leadership development or change initiatives. A key takeaway is the importance of routinely assessing successes and failures to achieve more balanced learning.
