Nicole Malachowski: Failure Is The Price Of Entry
Watch this video to hear Colonel Nicole Malachowski, a 21-year veteran of the US Air Force a combat veteran and the first woman pilot on the Thunderbirds Air Demonstration Squadron, discuss the how failure is a price of entry and how to harness the headwinds of change.
She describes how in flying, headwinds slow you down. At their worst, they cause you to change your plans and impact the effectiveness of weapons in combat. Headwinds demand that pilots be resilient and resourceful, literally on the fly. According to Nicole, “headwinds are the perfect metaphor for the change impacting organizations and individuals today.”
A former fighter squadron commander and mission-ready pilot in three operational fighter squadrons and the first woman to fly on the Air Force Thunderbirds, Nicole has the perfect message to inspire audiences to think differently about the headwinds of change they face—organizationally and personally. Drawing on her extraordinary Air Force career, Nicole offers lessons on leadership, followership, and overcoming adversity. She weaves storytelling with breathtaking video from the cockpit of her jet as the Thunderbirds execute precision turns, rolls, and loops—all just 36” from one another at 400 mph and just 300 feet off the ground. Nicole’s keynote helps audiences ignite their own indomitable spirit in order to succeed far beyond what they might dream. “Failure isn’t fatal,” she says, “it’s the price of entry if you want to achieve something great.”
