Critical to development of the concepts in this course was our network of corporate executives and leaders, captains of industry, government program managers, Olympic coaches, military leaders and business consultants that the team reached out to for insights and feedback. Woven throughout the fabric of these lessons are our philosophy of Corporate Maneuver Warfare and the aspects of leadership that those experts believed are essential to the success of any organization.

The course is comprised of 15 lessons, totaling 15 hours of highly interactive instruction. Each lesson is designed to elicit the experiences of the participants and instructors alike through participation in activities focused on actual, relevant leadership circumstances. Associated materials are provided to help guide participants through the course, and include tools, activities, and additional reading that can be used as references once the course is complete.
Using a progressive approach to the concepts addressed, participants begin by establishing a baseline on the fundamental concept of leadership, progress to the individual leader, and then to being a leader within an organization. Finally, the course wraps up with in-depth consideration of how they will exercise authority by applying what they have learned as they begin, or return to their role as a leader.
Module One – Course Introduction
An introduction to the course that generates enthusiasm for improving an organization by optimizing leadership abilities. This module introduces participants to a unique and exciting approach to leadership development, and helps set the context and expectations for the participants and the concepts covered.
Module Two – The Concept of Leadership
The cornerstone for the course, this module immediately engages participants by establishing the basic concept of leadership, and ensures alignment by helping differentiate leadership from organizational and operational management. This module also begins to focus the participants on the importance as a leader of recognizing both their own behavioral styles and that of their people.
Module Three – You as a Leader
Building off of the previous module, participants identify specific areas of focus at their current experience level that can accelerate their own individual development and growth as leaders. This module explores what it means to be a “good leader,” recognizing the impact leaders have when they communicate, and setting and managing expectations for their team, their peers, and their superiors.
Module Four – Leading within an Organization
This module introduces the participants to their unique role as a leader in the development of organizational strategy, establishing the structure required to support that strategy, and developing the people and resources required to execute the structure. Module Four closes with the most dynamic aspect of leading within an organization: the constant need and leadership skills necessary to maintain organizational balance between strategy, structure and people to ensure the organization realizes its desired results.
Module Five – Application of Leadership
In this final module some unique qualities and basic tenets of operations from the United States Marine Corps are offered as possibilities for increasing the influence and effectiveness of leadership in the participant’s own environment. Individual and group discussions and activities will require in-depth consideration of how participants will apply what they have learned in this course. Finally, a facilitated review of the course is conducted that addresses the culmination of what they have learned in the single principle of how they will exercise authority after completing the course.
