Local Women: Allison McClintick

Allison McClintick is the head of her own company called FlightLead, which helps individuals and organizations with improving or learning leadership. She does all this while parenting a 15-year-old daughter and a one-year-old son. Q: How did you get into this field? A: I’ve been doing this for more than 10 years. I went to college at the University of San Diego for leadership training and worked for the military and the FBI for a couple of years. After that, I decided to make my own business. Q: How do you teach people? A: I use an in-depth, customized approach to teaching a person or a group. There’s a four-step process that I use called the Four I’s, but there are many sub-categories. One on one, I like to cover it all, and I give clients custom homework. As a group or an organization, I go over the most relevant ones to the company. Q: What general advice would you give to leaders or people looking to become leaders? A: Leadership is an act, it’s a verb and it’s complex. It’s powerful and can make a big impact; changing your team quickly and effectively. People have to look at leadership as a comprehensive undertaking and not just the concept.
