Few people ever have to make life and death decisions under the extreme pressure that is exerted on the fast jet pilot in combat. Failure is not an option. If your teams can’t make effective decisions at a pace appropriate to circumstance, your organisation will lose.
This package offers anecdotal evidence that will undoubtedly improve decision making practices within your business.

‘Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.’
– Einstein –
For combat, everything is briefed then debriefed; everything. At first it feels mind -blowing; then it becomes standard; then you learn that you cannot live without it…
Debriefing is an art-form and it takes time to master. If your organisation doesn’t debrief, you will make the same mistakes over and over again and the worst part is, you won’t even know it.
‘Leadership and learning from your mistakes are indispensable to one another.’ JFK Learn How Get in touch
