***Testimonials***

You are surrounded in an environment where people want to see you succeed, an environment that allows you to recognize your fears and then run right through them. The FMI experience was about as far as you can get from my personal comfort zone. I was forced to expand my mind and adapt to my surroundings. Now there’s no forcing to be done; I’m ready, willing and able dive into the next training exercise. I came away with a renewed sense of confidence, an awakening of my passion for excellence and a deepened appreciation of teamwork. I learned the true meaning of “got your six” and am proud to be a member of my Elite Leader Team. I highly recommend this program to anyone looking to shake things up a bit in their organization. You won’t be disappointed.

THE DYNAMICS OF A LEADER, YESTERDAY AND TODAY

ess14924586147501

By Jimmy Burgess

During this three-piece article on leadership, I intend to bridge the gap between military and corporate leadership, leadership of “yesterday” and leadership of “today.”
Part one is going to focus on the subtle and fundamental changes that have gradually occurred, not from the leadership side,but from those who are led.  Today’s leaders face a unique challenge: Out with the old, in with the new. And no, I am not talking age groups. I am talking technology.

We are living in a time when technology is more advanced than it has ever been.  Daily, there are changes, updates, new programs coming out and old programs rendered “obsolete.”As leaders, we need to recognize the dynamics of those we look to lead.  Baby boomers have been labeled as “unwilling to change.” At the other end of the spectrum, millennial’s have been labeled as “lazy,” and“unwilling to earn their keep.”  Obviously,this is not a fair generalization of either age group, but it’s out there. As a leader, how do you challenge those you lead to separate themselves from this thought process?  Baby-boomers, Generation X and Ys, and Millennial’s alike all have a unique method and approach to daily tasks. Leaders of today face a great challenge: stay ahead of the wave of change and forge the leaders of tomorrow with the widest gap of age differences ever seen.

The United States military is one of the best examples of said “melting pot.” Military Leaders entering the civilian workforce are coming in with experience in their ability to accomplish the mission with the widest array of personnel demographics.How have they been so successful? Can they continue that success in the civilian sector? Of course they can.  They have experience. They work well under pressure.  They meet deadlines.  They are team oriented.  As a battlefield leader, you do not have to be a subject matter expert of every single piece of equipment in your squad,  platoon or company to be a successful leader.  A successful leader must remain humble.  They must realize they cannot possibly know everything at every moment.  There are measures in place to assure that even when the leader isn’t present, the next man below them can step in, and the next, and the next.  Battlefield dynamics suggest even the best leaders can, and do fall in combat. Proper training ensures that even the lowest ranking man, if needed, can accomplish the mission on the battlefield.  The same should bes aid for ANYONE who is a leader or will be one in the future.

As a leader, the key is to recognizing talent.  Every day should be an evaluation of those that look to someday replace you as you climb the corporate ladder or move on.  As a leader, the product you make is no longer what your company makes.  Those
days are gone.  Your responsibility and focus should be on the health and welfare of
those you lead. Is that your focus? Leaders MUST grow future leaders.  The United States military has an amazing assessment process in place.  The NCOER (Non-commissioned Officer Evaluation Report) and OER (Officer Evaluation Report). Yearly, NCOs and Officers receive one of these to assess their progress, address strengths and weaknesses,
and how to improve through personal and professional development. Does your company have a similar system in place? For a company to have a successful program, a
leader must be able to assess and analyze their subordinates with the full intent of
growth and progression.

If you believe your company needs a program like this to help strengthen your ranks, there are many resources available to generate a similar program online. Or, feel free to send me an email and I would love to assist you in improving your leadership (and future leadership) core.

I am an Elite Leader: Team Alorica

1 - Elite Leader Logo III

Lead, Develop, and Achieve!  The Leader and the Led  This was the message as Team Alorica embarked on its Elite Leader Training and Team Building at the D-Day Adventure Park.  It was a four-phase event that kicked off with a Leadership development class, progressed to the obstacle course, then on to active team engagements where the teams were challenged to collect critical intel and documents that served as the instructions for the final Team Alorica mission. The mission? to capture the High Value Target at a predetermined location, and then to fly the American flag to indicate mission completion and success.  The Elite Leader Training is progressive leader development from education to application, like the military applies battlefield to boardroom.  It’s an effective way to build camaraderie and morale while integrating military leader training, teamwork, mission preparation and execution.

Team Alorica, investing in and growing their leaders! Hooah!

Team Alorica

The day began with leadership training, continued to the team building course and then grew to 3 challenge courses and then culminated in a combined final mission.

Strong Leaders = Strong Businesses

Leaders create the standard, enforce and execute the standard - Lead by example.

Leadership Development

Leader development refers to enhancing leadership effectiveness, both at the individual and organization as a whole. Leadership development activities range from MBA style programs offered at university business schools to action learning, high-ropes courses and executive retreats.

Traditionally, leadership development has focused on developing the leadership abilities and attitudes of individuals. 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.

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.

Training For Results

Changing the behavior for maximum performance. We work collaboratively with your management team to increase your bottom line by increasing productivity while building an environment, beginning with a mindset which flows to an organizational mindset to set a new standard of excellence. Our team has extensive experience in training and development, workflow analysis, change management, leadership, and performance management. We’re ready to assist your organization in assessing goals and aligning behaviors to meet those goals.

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.

Transformation

Developing a mission-focused mindset at all levels beginning with Leadership of team and the members of the team, aligning its energy to work together. Transformation of a team involves re-energized sense of purpose, identify, and performance of team members through a variety of proven mechanisms. These include aligning a team member’s identity (self) to the mission and the collective identity of the organization. Leaders serve as role models and catalysts for change, challenging members to take greater ownership for their work, and understanding the strengths and weaknesses of the team to better align efforts, tasks, and enhance operational performance.

Performance

Out performing your competitor while increasing the bottom line profit! Your team will out perform by its more effective leadership and teams who execute with precision, understanding their role and that of the team. We will change your organization’s mindset to work smarter and by leveraging the strengths (both seen and yet to be seen) of their team. An organization often has the skills, talents, and competencies it needs to push a higher lever of performance, and doesn’t have to look outside its walls to get what it already has within them.

Execution

Learn how to execute the mission effectively while building team cohesiveness and assigning tasks with clarity of role and expectation, including overcoming unexpected obstacles. Making the decision to execute and the act of execution itself is where most companies lose its competitive edge (and sliding profit margin). Turn your business intentions into action — the right action! This business essential concept is the way that increases your bottom line — it‘s completing the mission!

Motivation

Starts from the top of the organization! The mindset to change and develop your team will be the driving force to complete the mission. How do you get your team rallied around your mission and have the right attitude to embrace your new motivation and renewed commitment? Create the higher standard of excellence while changing the lives of your team and those they come into contact with, most often their colleagues and customers/clients.

Values

Core values are the guiding principles of your organization and its leaders which become a visible part of how you operate and are interwoven throughout every interaction and every member of your team. Teams with operating values and those that do not will both have visible signs of this within their organization.

We want to help find out the values of your organization to help facilitate incorporating these into your team’s foundation — your culture. Too often, companies do not spend enough time setting their values in motion, which become the influencing “force” behind all of its dealings and relationships. Values (or lack thereof) may be the root cause behind employees and organizations not reaching their full potential.

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

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!
