Happy Birthday – US Army!

happy-birthday-army

Today we celebrate our Army’s 242nd birthday.  Soldiers of character, the sons and daughters from across our proud nation, serve as the cornerstone of our Army.  As the world’s premier land force, they stand ready to defend this great Nation.  The Army colors have 189 campaign streamers marking battles from the Revolutionary War to today’s campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.  Nearly 185,000 soldiers are currently deployed in 140 different countries helping to protect our great nation, our allies, and our interests.  We cannot overstate how important our Army is to preserving our freedom and way of life.  Our nation is eternally grateful.

From all of us at Forward March Inc.

Get Your Team Motivated and Improve Business with Leadership Training and Business Bootcamps

“A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent. “
– Douglas McArthur

leaderquote

Companies and organizations rise or fall on the leadership abilities of those who are in charge within the organization. Leaders in business today come in a wide variety of types, each seeming to bring their own leadership style to the table. Anyone who has worked for a company will be well aware of the successes or failures of various people in leadership positions. While everyone seems to enjoy the successes of a particular leader, it’s the failures that haunt the workplace for much longer. It goes without saying that quality leaders provide not only good morale and workplace organization, they also directly affect the company’s bottom line.

Just as people are not all born with the ability or desire to play sports, not all people are natural born leaders. Different personal traits and characteristics can help or hinder a person’s leadership effectiveness and require formalized programs for developing leadership competencies. Everyone can develop his or her leadership effectiveness, which takes focus, practice and persistence more akin to learning a musical instrument than reading a book.

What we have learned in business is that classroom-style training and associated reading is effective in helping leaders to know more about what is involved in leading well. However, knowing what to do and doing what you know are two very different outcomes. It is estimated that as little as 15% of learning from traditional classroom style training results in sustained behavioral change within the workplace.

So what is the best form of leadership training? That question probably has a variety of differing answers depending upon who you ask. At Forward March Inc. (FMI) we are less concerned with the variety of answers and more concerned with documented methodologies for achieving high quality leadership training. As they say, opinions are like belly-buttons, but at the end of the day what any company or organization needs is high quality proven leadership training and not opinions or half-baked theories. FMI focuses on training for results.

Training for results starts with changing the behavior for maximum performance. FMI collaborates with your management team to increase your bottom line while building an environment. This environment starts with a mindset which flows to an organizational mindset thus setting a new standard of excellence. Our team has extensive experience in:

  • Training and development
  • Workflow analysis
  • Change management
  • Leadership
  • Performance Management

We offer varied types of training courses tailored around your needs, ranging from one-on-one professional coaching to on-site group training, some that bring a “boot-camp” level of training style with a fun flair. Please refer to our program page to find out the best program for you.

Our program will help your company or organization to develop strong leaders that will be equipped to drastically change the culture of your team. Your team can expect growth in:

  • Transformation
  • Performance
  • Motivation
  • Values

We grow leaders, organizations and bottom line like no other!

Contact us today to start your transformative leadership training!

Forward March Inc also offers Business Bootcamps. These events, which we can customize for your organization, are extremely fun and will help motivate your organization. Looking to get your management team firing on all 8 cylinders? Business Bootcamps from FMI can be customized to not only peg your fun meter but also increase performance in your business teams.

Live Your Dream – Be Your Own Boss!

vetownedbusiness

According to the Small Business Association Office of Advocacy veterans make up approximately 9.1% of business owners. Veterans have a long standing history of leaving or retiring from military service and venturing out as small business owners and entrepreneurs.

Today there are more opportunities for Americans to start their own business than ever before. There are a multitude of ways that you can start your own business from franchises and licensing opportunities to buying into existing businesses and sales distribution markets, just to name a few. Starting a home-based-business is also always an option and many people exercise this option with varying results. The reasons for business failure are varied but one thing that helps ensure success is a good business model and sound business planning.

Many opportunities touted in the “sharing economy” and in the world of multi level marketing (MLM) promise great financial futures but the statistical reality is that few people who embark in these ventures ever make the income they dreamed of making when they started. These kinds of business “opportunities” have been in the news again with the public commitment of Uber to bring 50,000 vets onboard. You can read about what is going on with that here. 

If you want to avoid the pitfalls of becoming another statistic in these markets you can mitigate your risk. Take your time, and research the business you are getting into. If a business opportunity sounds too good to be true, conventional wisdom dictates that it probably is. However, no harm comes from doing your homework and researching opportunities. Entrepreneur magazine has some great advice on how to research a business opportunity. You can find their informative article here. 

Veterans who wish to go down the road of entrepreneurship have a lot of opportunities today to learn, get mentored and find proven methods of business success. If you are interested in joining the ranks of veterans who own their own business then you will definitely be interested in some of the outstanding opportunities available to you right now. Many of these opportunities are free for veterans! While many of these opportunities are in the San Antonio area we encourage veterans to look into their local Chamber, SBA, and university locations to find out if programs like this are being offered in their location.

We posted a while back that the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce is “re-booting” their entrepreneurial boot-camp for military veterans. You can learn more about that here.

Veterans who want to join the SBA and start down the track of entrepreneurship should check out the latest article on the San Antonio Business Journal site. The SBA is extending their fee waiver program for veterans through 2015!

Veterans and transitioning military interested in starting their own business should also check out the San Antonio Small Business Development Center at UTSA. This program offers a number of benefits including special veterans assistance.

In a VERY short amount of time they moved up to managing, owning a franchise and now to being among the top producing studios in the company. What we have found at Forward March Inc. is that military personnel are especially suited not only for the training and becoming instructors themselves, but becoming highly successful in the company.  Forward March Inc. has an outstanding relationship with our customer Fred Astarie Dance Studios. You owe it to yourself to check out our previous post to learn more about the outstanding opportunities for employment and even franchise ownership with them.
