Paul Sean Hill is an author and speaker focused on applying Mission Control leadership principles in creating and leading high-performing teams in any industry.

During his 25 years at NASA, Paul first developed space station construction techniques and then led flights from Mission Control as a Space Shuttle and International Space Station Flight Director. He supported 24 missions as a Flight Director from 1996 through 2005, culminating as the Lead Shuttle Flight Director for the return-to-flight on STS-114 after the Columbia accident.

SAfter a series of senior leadership positions, Paul served as the Director of Mission Operations for human spaceflight from 2007 through 2014, responsible for all aspects of mission planning, flight controller and astronaut training, and Mission Control in a $650M per year enterprise. He is credited with revolutionizing the leadership culture, dramatically reducing costs, and increasing capability, all while still conducting missions in space.

Before his work with NASA, Paul served in the USAF in military satellite operations. He earned his bachelor and master of science degrees in aerospace engineering, from Texas A&M University in 1984 and 1985 and was a member of the Corps of Cadets. He married another Texas Aggie, with whom he raised two more extraordinary (fourth generation) Aggie women.

To learn insights from Mission Control that can help your business, read Paul’s book, Leadership from the Mission Control Room to the Boardroom, (also published in the UK as Mission Control Management).
