Special Forces
The Special Forces team concept has proven to improve quality, increase productivity and develop a greater sense of ownership and partnership with employees.  Series 18 Instructors are retired Green Berets and MARSOC Raiders that have conducted real world operations throughout the world. The seminars and training developed by our team members share the challenges they faced and how the principles and tools applied are universal to any organization, civilian or military.  These lessons learned can provide your employees with beneficial techniques that are tested and proven by our elite special operations men and women. In addition to the seminars and training, our team has developed courses that are focused on getting your employees out of the office and providing them with the opportunity to get out of their comfort zone. These opportunities will build confidence and develop teamwork, as well as give your employees an enjoyable experience.

Leadership
Anyone can tell or make someone do something. Motivating others to want to do things is what makes a true leader. Our team members have led foreign forces under some of the most austere and harsh environments with unsurpassed success.  Although everyone is in not charge, mentoring and building leadership qualities throughout an organization's work force builds confidence and promotes proactivity.

​​​​​​​
Planning
Planning is essential to executing any Special Operations mission conducted overseas. These same planning techniques utilized by SOF will be provided to your team ensuring tasks will be prepared for and executed right the first time. Having a well thought out plan while addressing contingencies will prevent failure and instill confidence in your team.  

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
Problem Solving
In any organization problem solving is an everyday occurrence, but without the proper training and tools, situations can deteriorate quickly, often times with catastrophic end states. Due to the nature of the Special Operations mission, our team members have become experts at problem solving. The proven systems utilized by our team will be shared with your employees to improve their everyday performance. By learning how to define the problem, conduct a proper analysis, develop and implement an effective course of action, your employees will be successful in working through problems specific to their field.

​​​​​​​
Emotional Intelligence
Being aware that emotions can drive behavior and impact results either positively or negatively is a skill that is used within the Special Forces community. Having the confidence to suspend one’s ego so the mission objectives are accomplished take precedence over physical emotions or needs.  Emotional intelligence is cultivating the ability to perceive, evaluate and control emotions. This course will demonstrate ways to delay gratification, control impulses, read and appropriately respond to the social cues of others.​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​
Effective Communication
Effective Communication is when a person is actively listening, absorbs the point and replies with an appropriate question or comment. SOF operators are given techniques to communicate with individuals who may not speak the same language or hold the same values, but can achieve comprehension of their view by watching body language, expressions and tone of voice.

​​​​​​​
Negotiations/Conflict Management and Resolution
Our team of former Special Operators are the quintessential warrior diplomats, having negotiated and resolved conflicts across the globe. The ability to truly immerse themselves within a culture, understanding all of the complex nuances has resulted in an unsurpassed ability to “think outside the box”, coming up with innovative ways of conducting effective negotiations while achieving long term success in managing and resolving conflict. Our team will discuss the Art of Persuasion and Influence providing techniques used across the spectrum to achieve mission success.

​​​​​​​
Diversity
A Special Operations team operates in complex environments filled with cultural diversity on all levels. The ability to work through the problem sets inherent to these situations is what makes our Special Operations Forces (SOF) the most successful in the world. Our team will take your employees through some of these experiences and share beneficial techniques to carry back to the work place. Our team will provide unique scenarios allowing your employees an opportunity to train in realistic multicultural diverse setting.
