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. At all levels in the operation–from the SEAL Team and the flight crews to the White House and CIA, there was effective strategic and tactical planning and execution, agility within teams and rapid decision making. This program interactively teaches how this moment in history can improve leadership capabilities, decision making and team performance.
Through a mix of hands-on exercises, film clips, and techniques, Bill Fournet will show a new way to lead your teams, better manage risks and assumptions, and apply lessons learned for your teams immediately.

These techniques may be applied to teams, large and small.
