Philip Keil Speaking Topics

Crash or landing on the dot?
The team makes the difference!
Flying is all about teamwork. But what is the secret of agile teams? Their variety. Beyond rigid hierarchies, different roles, perspectives and experiences enable to learn from each other quickly and to act as a community. In these fields aviation sets new, unconventional standards. Philip Keil opens the cockpit door and allows extraordinary insights in a team culture of trust and own initiative. This multiple awarded keynote speech rethinks leadership – exciting and including concrete practical tools.

  • Why teams fail and the tools every „captain“ should know about
  • If you cannot take the next exit: human factor to replace the mental autopilot
  • Vote of confidence: Count on clear roles, not on rigid hierarchies
    Topics: teamwork, leadership, confidence

Decision Points
Confident decision-making in turbulent times
Neither in the cockpit nor in life everything runs according our plans. No matter how good the plan is. What a makes a leader on the ground as up in the air, is his/her handling of sudden changes. A crisis sharpens our view of what leadership essentially is: making courageous decisions, straight-forward crisis communication and target-related error culture. Philip Keil speaks about the “decision point” of his life and transfers strategies of professional pilots on change processes in the economy and in our society. His credo: A crisis shows us our weaknesses. But it reminds us on our strengths, as well. Both aspects arise valuable chances.

  • Reaching goals means reaching people: leading in a crisis
  • Decision points: how to master change and to make huge decisions
  • Learning from crisis means learning from mistakes: how to live positive error culture
    Topics: error culture, crisis management, change

YOU are the pilot!
