Our Workbooks & Books

1. Introduction & Leader Planning

Planning is the art and science of understanding a situation, envisioning a desired future, and laying out effective ways of bringing that future about.   If you want to be a leader and bring your business to a higher level of revenue & profits, you need to PLAN!

If you don’t plan, how do you think you will get there?  In our workbook, Leader Planning, we walk leaders through the steps of planning based on military principles. 

Once you have a well crafted plan, you will win the fight.  This means more profits for you and less for your competition. 

2. Communication

Success or failure of a mission always centers around COMMUNICATIONS!

In analyzing the failures of missions, in military operations and in business, we have found that poor communications is the common denominator.  Conversely, great communications is a common denominator in successful missions.  Leaders must establish a solid communications platform to ensure information flows where it needs to go. 

Our workbook, Building a Communications Platform, takes you through the steps and explains the value of each communication product.  These communication products are well proven to increase the effectiveness of your team and increase profits.

The workbook works well as a self paced lesson; it works even better when you bring in one of our instructors from Griffin Gorge Associates. 

3. Problem Solving & Decision Making

How many times have you seen setbacks and lost revenue from bad decisions?  This workbook brings you the Military Decision Making Process (MDMP) adapted to meet civilian business applications.  This is truly the world’s best process to solve problems and make decisions.

When you are a leader making sound decisions, you will be a leader that makes a profit!l. 

4. Staff Development

People are your most important, and most valuable, resource.   The military has developed sound principles and methods to develop a staff that comes from varied backgrounds of culture, economic status, and educational levels.

5. Customer Service

The definition of customer service:  The customer gives up money in exchange for your product/service and they are happy to do so. Leaders must invest in and direct resources to create an environment that fosters good customer service.

6. Community

Leaders must study and become knowledgeable about their communities.  This includes the physical space around them and the digital.  Learn how the military uses different layers to analyze the space around them and how to use that information.

7. Loss Prevention

To protect company resources (manpower, material and funds) from being expended on unnecessary events. Any funds or resources spend must provide a value in return, or it is a loss that needs to be prevented.

8. Competition

There are businesses out there trying to put you under.  You need to learn who they are, where they are and how they operate.  Know them – then kill them.

9. Ethics

Poor ethical behavior will rip the sign off the front door faster and harder than any other issue.  Leaders must have the trust of their leadership, their peers, their staff and importantly, their customers.

10. Focus On Yourself

The military understands the individual Soldier is a machine that needs maintenance.  Leaders must maintain a healthy body & soul in order to be in a position to lead others.  You are important.  Your care is essential to the mission.
