Enabling Your Teams to Perform like Navy SEALs

In 2011, with short notice, Navy SEAL Team Six (DEVGRU) was deployed on a mission to apprehend Osama Bin Laden. This elite fighting force was the frontline force in Operation Neptune Spear – made famous through the film Zero Dark Thirty and the book No Easy Day. So, what does team performance have to do with the SEALs? At all levels in the operation – from the SEAL Team and the flight crews to the White House and CIA, there was strategic and tactical planning and execution of the mission, schedule, and roles and responsibilities. This workshop will interactively teach how this moment in history can improve your team performance.

Through a mix of hands-on exercises, film clips, and techniques, Persimmon will show you a new way to lead your teams, better manage your risks and assumptions, and apply lessons learned immediately. You will learn how to evolve your teams to become more agile and adaptive to the ever-changing business needs in a disciplined organization. These techniques may be applied to teams small and large in various types of applications within the business world – IT, engineering, manufacturing, human resources and business change to name a few.
