In the ever-changing and demanding global economy, and in the dynamic environments that currently face leaders, families and the organizations they serve, leaders must be prepared to make a daily dynamic impact that drives positive business results. They must also be prepared to protect themselves, their families and the people of their organizations against the multiple threats of the 21st century.
There are some great courses across the spectrum of leadership that address ideas and education of the challenges facing today’s chief executive officers. However, there is only one that addresses the full spectrum of personal security; high-stress shooting skills; combative training and physical conditioning for the executive; trauma/tension release exercises and enhanced intuitive perception; emergency medical care for the leader and his or her family; in-home and out-of-the-home readiness and protection; travel safety; high-risk situational training; and anti-kidnapping and hostage survival, including “how to survive the first minute,” risk mitigation and developing "the warrior within."
That course is Osprey Global Solution’s Executive Warrior Leader Course, hosted by General (Retired) David L. Grange and his staff of handpicked, certified and experienced professionals. The course is offered at the Osprey Training Range in Council, North Carolina.
With a one to two instructor-to-student ratio, the Executive Warrior Leader Course provides the best opportunity for training over an aggressive 48-hour period. Time and trust of the executives who attend the course is critical to the Osprey leadership and staff, who are all committed to providing first-class training where safety first is the hallmark of the experience.
At a recent session, executives were instructed by former U.S. Army counterterrorism warriors; U.S. Navy SEALS; Special Forces Green Berets; Army Rangers; police SWAT officers; DEA agents; undercover detectives; government agency operatives; and expert board-certified physicians, neurophysiology and behavioral health trainers, intuitive perception experts, and paramedics.
Among those leaders who participated, their comments reflected both pride in participation and confidence in the outcome, acknowledging that this training was the best that they had ever received across the functional areas.
"I met American heroes in their trade craft … the classes were awesome … their presence as warriors and trainers were real and impressive … the medical trauma training was superb…" – David
"I felt that I learned more about myself and leadership from absolutely incredible professional trainers ..." – Chuck
The training schedule was balanced with live-fire training, classroom work and cohesive drills, and infused with opportunities for team building, including a fireside steak night and a class on “warrior ethos” that was tied to being an American business leader.
"The leaders and presentations at the fireside were superb … it was a motivational experience for me and the folks on my team …" – Mitch
The leader training course was marked by a graduation dinner, coined, “Osprey Once an Eagle Dining Inn.” At the dinner, certificates were awarded for both medical and field training by General Grange and Dr. Abe Walston, the senior medical professional on the Osprey staff.
The dinner was capped by the presentation of the Osprey patch, which identifies the "bonding of the leader." In the Osprey leader philosophy, every leader has the responsibility to lead and protect those they lead by way of example and of training.
"I was honored to receive an Osprey patch in front of my leader peers and the Osprey staff …" – Paul
The Executive Warrior Leader Program is ongoing and will also include father-and-son and father-and-daughter courses.
For those seeking leadership from example with practical exercises and application, this course is a must. For more information please contact Osprey Global Solutions at www.ospreyglobalsolutions.com.
