Employee Spotlight Interview with Nina
Meet Nina Piede, our Manager Operation/Pilot.
Nina joined AMROS Global nearly 1 year ago and has been a very valuable part of our team since then. In her role as a Manager Operation she deals with implementing new regulation processes for Part-CAMO and she also communicates with aviation authorities as part of her project assignments. She also owns a commercial Pilot license. We are very proud to have her on our team and we look forward to her future success.
Hi Nina, thanks for your time and sharing , how do you feel now when the Covid-19 restrictions have being lifted and our lives are nearly back to the old normal?
I feel relieved after more then a year of the lockdown, I hope that the airline industry will recover fully soon. Also, I look forward to get back to flying.✈️
If we look back to your childhood. Do you remember what drew you to the aviation industry? And have you ever considered working in a different business field?
Growing up, I was always in touch with the aviation industry through a big part of my family. I always found it very interesting and fascinating, but it was not until I was 15 or 16 years old that I decided, I wanted to work in this field. My first goal was to become an air traffic controller but changed into becoming a pilot. Those are quite ambitious goals, so of course I have also thought about other career fields. The situation now has shown me again, that aviation is not the most stable field to work in, but I still love it and cannot see myself changing the field completely.
It is good to set big goals in life, it somehow pushes you and motivates you to go forward. With your busy schedule, how do you balance your job and your private life/family?
We are lucky that at AMROS, you are quite flexible with the distribution of your time, which makes it easier to balance it with the private life and appointments. My family is in Germany, so I do not get to see them that often, but also here, the planning for days off or to do home office is easy.
What is your favourite part about working for AMROS Global?
I like that you can joke around with everybody, it lightens the mood and nobody takes offense.?
That is true! May I ask, how does success look for you?
I see success in the achievement of a goal, a positive outcome to a situation, having met or exceeded your expectations.
Here is my favourite questions, if you could switch your job with anyone else within AMROS, whose job would you want and why?
This is a difficult question, but I think I would switch it with Bernhard Meier, because he is working on a project, developing a tool using artificial intelligence. It is such a great idea, completely different to my work, really interesting and a big step in the progress and innovation within the company.
How has AMROS Global helped you in your career development?
AMROS has put a lot of confidence in me right from the start. I had my own project from the beginning I started working for AMROS. It was also possible to look over everybody’s shoulder and get an idea what is going on in the company. After some time, I could take over more tasks, working more independently and with more and more responsibility. I enjoyed this learning by doing approach and think it worked out quite well so far.
Do you recall any embarrassing moment at work?
No, I am probably not working here long enough to have one.?
That’s maybe better.? What does a true leadership mean to you?
Leadership is about motivating people to work towards a goal (together). For that, you have to set an example and live what you want to see from others. You have to believe in the qualifications of your employees, let them work as independently as possible and be supportive. It is also important to see each person as an individual and foster to their specific needs. So empathy is a big part of it in my opinion.
I totally agree with you, we are all individuals with our own skills and personalities! If you were to write a book about yourself, what would you name it?
I have not thought about that. I would write the book first and find the title later, depending in which direction the storyline would go.?
Okay, that is a smart move.? Thanks Nina for your answers.
This is all for now, we hope you enjoyed this interview wiht Nina and you can look forward to more interviews coming up soon.
