This classroom training is based on the leadership framework established by special forces.

Practical theory course that introduces leadership principles which are the foundation of all our courses.

We are convinced that every problem is a leadership problem. Solving a problem becomes easier when you have the right knowledge, skills and mindset. We’ll introduce you to the Principles of Leadership and the Four Laws of Combat that will help you succeed in every situation – at work, at home and on the battlefield. We’re fully confident that when living by these principles and using the knowledge you learn you’ll never again find yourself at a loss for what to do to solve problems. You’ll have the tools you can use when you need them. 

The aim of the training is to make the participant a more effective leader, whatever the situation. The emphasis is on practical exercises that illustrate and help people understand how to use the principles they have learned in their daily lives. Our experience has shown that the knowledge learnt is better retained if it has already been practiced during the training.

The Mindset:

Extreme Ownership – I am in control of my life only when I take ownership of everything, instead of blaming others and making excuses.

Default Aggressive – problems are not going to get solved by themselves.

Innovate and adapt – the situation and environment are constantly changing.

Discipline Equals Freedom – how are these two tied together?

Humility – what is EGO, why and how is it beneficial to tame it in a leadership context.

The Four Laws of Combat and their application:

‘Cover and Move’ – the importance of teamwork. If the whole team doesn’t win, nobody wins.
Simplicity – details vs concepts, clarity vs complexity, finding the balance between them.
Prioritize and Execute – decision making, navigating between options and justifying the decisions.
Decentralized Command – freedom to decide, ‘the captain of information’.

After completing the course:

Participants will have a thorough experience of using leadership principles and extreme ownership principles and an idea of how to apply them in real life.
