Making Leaders

In a 2011 study, McKinsey & Company compared the growth of 700 companies with independent performance appraisals of more than 100,000 executives. They found that leadership quality is critical to growth – but that most companies don’t have enough high-quality executives.

SSPI’s Making Leaders campaign is dedicated to correcting that shortfall in space and satellite, where a cadre of experienced workers age 45-54 make up 42% of the workforce.

Leadership Training

We share the insights of industry leaders on their own career paths and the essentials of hiring, management and leadership, as well as special reports on undervalued aspects of attracting and retaining the best and brightest.

Attracting New Talent

We engage directly with youth to promote the incredible adventure that comes with a career in space and satellite. As they engage, we connect them with SSPI members for advice and mentoring.
