Who Steps Up to Lead During a Crisis? A Survivor of the "Miracle on the Hudson" Shares What Defines Effective Leadership


Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/31/2016 -- WHAT DEFINES EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP BOTH DURING AND AFTER A TRAGIC OR POTENTIALLY TRAGIC SITUATION? In a September 2 episode of "Turn the Page," "Miracle on the Hudson" survivor Dave Sanderson, shares how to grow and even thrive after a traumatic experience.

Inspirational speaker, and author Dave Sanderson risked his life to help fellow passengers to safety when US Airways Flight 1549 crash-landed into the Hudson River on January 15, 2009 due to a bird strike. Miraculously, all of the crewmembers and passengers survived. Since then, Dave has traveled the world to share how to lead effectively when crises happen. He discusses how values drive decisions, and how both uncertainty and certainty affect leadership. In viewing the plane crash as a metaphor for other life-changing moments, Dave describes what it takes to shift from depression to purpose, from uncertainty to certainty, from strife to peace. He illustrates lessons that are applicable to entrepreneurship, sports, personal loss, and many other contexts.

Since the "Miracle on the Hudson," considered to be the most successful ditching in aviation history, Dave Sanderson has built a career as a motivational speaker, mentor and author. Dave averages over 100 speeches a year for major institutions across the globe. In his presentations, he teaches "The 12 Resources to Create Your Own Personal Flight Plan TM," precepts that enabled him to become a top producer in some of the largest sales organizations in the world, and ultimately enabled him to survive the plane crash. He has donated his speaker services at countless fundraisers that have raised over $8.56 Million for the American Red Cross, an expression of gratitude for the care he received from the first person he saw after he was rescued: a Red Cross volunteer with a blanket. In his new book, Moments Matter, Dave discusses how to turn a potential tragedy into an opportunity to survive, grow, and add even more value. He can be reached at http://davesandersonspeaks.com.
