    Coaching is the “third hat.” Coaching unlocks the full potential of individuals and teams. This is the hat you do not learn about in school that makes all the difference. Emily Liu and Kelly Poulos are passionate about developing coaching skills in the next generation of leaders. Coaching a player to peak performance is a process. The vehicle for coaching is a series of conversations. In Secrets to Winning, Emily and Kelly documented 10 real time Coach/Player conversations. You will witness how these conversations create commitment, passion, power, and action.

     It is a new world! Old school, top down, “command and control” management practices are extinct. This outdated management style creates compliant people who are just “OK.” For Emily and Kelly, “OK is not OK.” Peak performance requires versatility and speed. Today’s successful managers and entrepreneurs must be versatile and wear with ease three equally essential hats: manager, leader, and coach. Each hat is a distinct way of relating with an individual or a team.

星際先鋒:美國衛星製程總工程師解密7宗太空意外事件


評分人數不足
買書去
【華人圈最著名航空作家首度講述太空專業】
【任職美國航太界40年最深切的體會】
【解碼人類前往銀河系路途上的離奇遭遇!】
★ 星際探險載具的會合、銜接驚險歷程
★在太空中要減速才能追上前面的太空船?
★太空梭爆炸後,組員還活著?
★太空預算的錢都花到哪裡去了?

太空時代最具代表性災難案例,出自專業的記載與敘事觀點。

本書以專業的太空產業知識為依據,加上作者生動的故事筆觸,剖析人類探索太空時所發生的代表性事故案例,以及美蘇太空產業事後得到的教訓與改善方案。

書中收入聯盟11號、哥倫比亞太空梭、阿波羅1號等多起離奇的事故,用清晰易懂的筆法解說這些事故背後的工程、管理因素,以及調查過程中所發現的真相。

作者指出,太空產業與科技將整體帶動國內產業並創造工作機會,但面臨資源受限、維持進度的壓力不斷增加的情況時,若管理者因預算、進度、公關或政治任務,而忽略專業工程建議,將導致難以想像的悲劇性後果。這也是本書作者任職美國航太界40年最深切的體會。

案例中還有許多作者難忘的個人經驗,讀來令人印象深刻。例如挑戰者號太空梭失事前不久,他才與太空梭上的工程師太空人合作解決問題。失事後他到卡拉維爾角出差,親眼見到由海中撈上來的太空梭殘骸,心中有無限感慨。

本書的案例是絕佳的參考,未來無論是發展太空商業、觀光或其他相關產業,都可借鏡書中故事的經驗,讓人類前往銀河星系之路更順暢。

作者簡介

王立楨

1984年加入洛克希德.馬丁公司飛彈與太空部門任製程工程師,在該公司工作三十年,於2014年以專案製程總工程師退休。這三十年間曾參與多項人造衛星與太空載具的製作,1987年因修改製作程序,為公司每年省下鉅額製作費用,而被選為公司之傑出工程師。1997年火星拓荒者號登陸火星後,人類在火星表面唯一的中文,就是他所簽下自己的名字,縮小後燒印在電路板上。

他更擁有美國聯邦航空總署所頒發的私人飛行執照,對飛機與飛行都有相當的瞭解,且在兩岸航太迷當中享有盛名,經常研究並撰寫我國的空軍、民航故事。因著他的研究成果,我國空軍曾多次更正戰史紀錄,甚至更正了空軍公墓墓碑上的資料。他是目前唯一曾替兩位參謀總長、四星上將(陳燊齡與唐飛)做傳的作者。2017年8月,他更成為第一位以撰寫空軍故事而獲得空軍模楷甲種二等獎章(文字類)的平民。

代表著作為《我們必須去:駕駛艙視角的飛行故事》、《消失的航班:美國航太專家解密當代民航7宗驚人懸案》、《我以我血獻青天:13位國軍飛行員的故事》、《飛航解密:美國航太專家關於飛航安全、訓練與管理的大解密》、《螺旋槳邊的歲月》、《唐飛:從飛行員到上將之路》、《回首來時路:陳燊齡將軍一生戎馬回顧》以及「飛行員的故事」系列作品等。
