Resolved. Coordinated. On Target
Let's be clear. Learning and Education are important. A group of the most educated, highly-educated individuals is still no more than a group of individuals. Innovation is a trait, not an end-state. Victory demands development of coordinated resolve. It requires the firepower and flexibility of "vicious harmony". Therein lay the end-state for Professional Military Education.
The Joint Chiefs have made historical PME a renewed priority. Fortunately, we've been using it in the development battle-ready teams for over fifteen years.
From Chaos to Action.
Get to the heart of mission execution. Don't settle for a series of lectures on doctrines, concepts, and theories. Don't settle for a casual site-seeing holiday. Embed in the local population. Feel the resolve. Test the coordination. See the ground and the sites. But follow the critical points of successful execution and failure from strategic to operational, to tactical and levels, especially with the human element.
Identify the impact of leadership, both strategic and personal. Their their coordination and their resolve; their readiness to Adapt, Improvise, and Overcome. Explore their ability to work as one to win as one. Most importantly, apply those lessons now.
Available in hard-hitting, full-supported on-the-ground battlefield excursions, or with Virtual sessions conducted on-site or remotely.
From Talk to Action
Begin with the end. Examine each organization or unit from "the outside" -- its performance, its precision, its execution of a plan or achievement on the mission, unfiltered by excuses or distractions.
Examine "the inside" of the organization or unit for those factors which contribute to or detract from the battle-readiness of The Team, and its execution of The Mission. Critique them without favor or excuse, and make applications now.
Begin the transition "from Talk to Action" which actionable solutions. Clarify and articulate conclusions and applications of what needs to be accomplished, and how to get it done. Strategic Leadership and Personal Leadership.
Leveraging clarity achieved throughout the learning evolution, leave the session prepared to take first steps toward turning decisions into results that contribute to coordination and resolve.
