The Kansas Cosmosphere says NASA’s Mission Operation Control Room is the location where crisis management skills are put to the test.
It said its next virtual “Coffe at the Cosmo” will appeal to business leaders as well as space enthusiasts.
According to the Cosmosphere, starting at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 21, residents can participate in a virtual conversation with Gerry Griffin, who served as a flight director during the Apollo program and succeeded Chris Kraft as the director of the Johnson Space Center.
It said Griffin will be joined by Sandy marshall, a leadership training expert that helped clients from Verizon and General Electric to Morgan Stanley understand how to bring improvisational skills to bear on critical moments of leadership.
The Cosmosphere said “Coffee at the Cosmo” attendees will learn how techniques like “Yes/And” thinking improve collaboration and outcomes and how that works with stories that Griffin will share from the MOCR.
