Leadership Under Pressure: Getting Warrior Tough


As companies struggle with volatile conditions in the current changeable world of business, it is easy for leaders to become frustrated, stressed, and overwhelmed by constant emergencies and the digital-noise that never seems to stop. As a result of our environmental overload, company cultures begin eroding, producing poor teamwork and low morale.

In this session, Andrew shares the same mental agility tools and techniques he taught as lead instructor with the State Department, training high-threat diplomatic security to former Navy SEALS, Marines, Rangers and Special Forces.  Mental toughness and agility are critical characteristics of successful leaders. Learn how to develop these traits in your leaders and yourself with proven military strategies used to train our armed forces.

Attendees will receive an infusion of the knowledge from the Agent in Charge of Nancy Pelosi’s security detail, along with and his experiences personally protecting Hillary Clinton, Tom Delay, Joe Lieberman, King Abdullah of Jordan, Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, Sir Elton John and Fortune 20 CEOs.

You will learn:

  • How to unlock the brain’s power and potential to thrive in any situation
  • How to keep fear and anxiety from hijacking your emotions
  • How to defeat the negative effects of stress
