Becoming a Black Hawk helicopter pilot wasn't easy, and from that experience came the realization that pilots - rotary or fixed wing, military or civilian - have a different thought process. The rigors of flight training and the heightened state of awareness during flight changes who they are. What makes pilots different? Why are they revered as an industry and looked up to by children with awestruck eyes? And how can the lessons learned as pilots translate into personal leadership and high level performance? The P.I.L.O.T. Method breaks down the five elemental truths to being a better leader of yourself through the experiences of pilots. P - Potential: You have potential, are you confident in that potential, and how to boost it. I - Implementation: What are you doing with your potential, and how to get more out of it. L - Leadership: The three pillars of leadership based on aviation principles and how they apply to you. O - Optimize: Are you living your best life? Learn how you can be more, do more, and live more. T - Tenacity: Never give up. How to find that toughness within you. Through Elizabeth McCormick's stories and those of her pilot friends, you'll learn how to FLY - First Lead Yourself. 1.

There are so many different parenting styles today, each one promising to raise a healthy, happy, and confident child. Some rely on seemingly conflicting principles: Helicopter parenting advises parents to always be in the know about what their children are doing, even spying on them. Hands-off parenting, however, advocates letting children make their own choices as they are developmentally able to. While these different approaches certainly have their benefits, they don’t always take into consideration meeting the needs of your child, not just at his or her developmental level, but as a unique and capable individual person. Positive parenting is an approach that seeks to always affirm and validate the child while understanding the problems and meeting the needs that underlie negative behavior. It is not so much a set of rules and guidelines as it is a way of life. At its heart is a belief in your own child and the assurance that your child is enough and doesn’t need to be anything more than the child already is. It begins with the emotional health of the parent as the basis from which children develop their own emotional health and behavioral regulation. Positive parenting has the goal of empowering children to make good and meaningful decisions on their own without the need for external motivation because they have an internal drive that gears them towards success. Punishing bad behavior does not teach good behavior, self-esteem, and integrity. Rather than imposing strict rules and dishing out punishments, positive parenting provides loving guidance to set kids on the right path. They are valued as family members who can contribute to decisions and whose input is valued. They have secure attachments with their parents, setting them up for strong relationships outside of the family. The connection between kids and parents always comes before correction. 1.
