The Aviation Collective offers interactive leadership growth challenges, development resources, collaborative coaching memberships, and aviation-specific online courses to help busy professionals hone soft skills, improve work-life balance, and transform workplace culture.
Based on intensive training and experience in business coaching across dozens of industries—and research conducted for the FAA’s Women in Aviation@ Advisory Board, Banglesdorf has observed that an emphasis on technical training seems to deprioritize development of strong leadership attributes. The result is young professionals choosing different career paths or leaving aviation for other industries.
“While technical training is critically important to safety, learning good managerial skills and developing business acumen light the runway for aviation’s future,” Banglesdorf said. “As the workforce gap widens, the savviest businesses will attract the best talent. According to what I’ve learned as a high-performance business coach, talent development is key—and often underemphasized.”
