David Sears | Strategic Decision Making
Tuesday, June 5, 2018

Sponsored by:

Commander David Sears offers a look inside how the nation’s most elite special operations forces train to make quick and effective decisions in life and death environments. With more than 20 years of tactical and strategic experience, he shares stories about some of our most headline-stealing conflicts (like the first successful prisoner of war rescue since WWII) as he shows audiences how to create a process around decision-making that leads to faster, better decisions. He offers a practical framework: 1) end state – what are the goals, 2) gathering information – beyond the traditional, and 3) test for decisions – is it S.A.F.E. (suitable, acceptable, feasible, and end state). Sears’ presentations are a high energy look into how audiences can apply the best of the Navy SEALs to their own organizations.

Gordon Graham | The 7 Rules of Admiral Hyman Rickover 
Wednesday, June 6, 2018


Admiral Hyman Rickover is known as the “father of the nuclear navy.” In the early 50’s, he was asked to build his nuclear fleet - but he was cautioned “make it safe as Americans have no tolerance for tragedy.” Over a period of years, he put together seven control measures (the rules of Admiral Rickover) to address problems lying in wait with the goal of preventing a nuclear tragedy. These rules are continuous improvement, quality people, solid supervision, respecting risk, constant and rigorous training, solid auditing and continuous learning. Gordon Graham will explain how these rules apply to every high-risk occupation and provide proven strategies and tactics
to help you implement these “rules” into your organization.
