Out of office
I am sure many of you have worked in aviation companies where things run just a little more efficient when the boss is NOT around. I have worked at places where there were chuckles every time the boss said he’d come out to help things “run smoother” because he usually achieved the exact opposite. I have even worked a contract on which the boss was scheduled to fly relief, where everyone involved worked extra days voluntarily, just to avoid the boss coming out and keep things running smoothly the way they were. Most of the customers we fly for like consistency.
When I was in charge of hiring, I believed in hiring the right people from the get-go and then just let them run with it. I tried not to be a micro manager, but I am sure once you lost my trust, I was exactly that. I might never know how exactly my pilots felt about me back when, but I am hoping they weren’t doing what the Roost Air crew is doing behind Hans’s back here 😉
