Virtual Afterburner Day
Build high-performance teams. Since growing your business is like undertaking an elite military mission, we conduct an exhilarating and fast-paced virtual program that alters the way your team thinks about achieving goals. In our high-energy, engagement-rich program, we teach teams to solve seemingly insurmountable challenges using the powerful tools of Flawless Execution, structured in a unique “demo then do” format. Re-engaged teams immediately rally to a common goal and apply learnings to their daily work, thereby increasing the adoption and ROI of the program.
Virtual Rapid Planning Workshop
Immediately engage and align virtual teams. This 90-minute program is the leaner version of our Virtual Afterburner Day, which leverages demo-do training to teach the Six Steps of Mission Planning – but from a very different perspective. The Virtual Rapid Planning Workshop trains individuals to leverage the planning framework independently. This training is critical for individual planning when circumstances prevent open group planning but using the same Six Step Process.
Inspire and motivate teams to succeed. Our team of former elite military professionals turned business consultants and speakers relate their experiences and stories to the business challenges your team faces in this chaotic environment. The engaging, high-energy virtual keynote program will inspire your audience to immediately apply what they’ve learned into their daily work lives – so they can break down silos, drive accountability, and accelerate team performance in a work-from-home environment where distractions and communication errors are bound to arise.
Virtual Debrief Workshop
Gain insights and capture best practices. This 2-hour program delivers actionable insights related to validating strategy, capturing best practices, and emerging customer pain points, identifying competitive activity, building short term wins, and targeting long term opportunities. This workshop is a nameless and rankless environment in which the mission successes and, most importantly, the failures are reviewed. From the failures, the debrief draws lessons learned that can, in turn, be used in future mission planning in order to avoid the same mistakes. You will walk away from this event with the open and honest environment necessary for superior teamwork and a culture of learning.

The men and women of Afterburner specialize in accelerating their clients' safety performance through Flawless Execution. By leading groups through a core process of Plan, Brief, Execute, and Debrief, the Afterburner trainers begin to induce a cultural change in the organization, evolving how teams plan for and execute safely on each and every mission.
This high-energy, multimedia keynote explores the Flawless Execution Model and how it relates to the demanding and changing healthcare business.

Team Building - Afterburner Day
A half-day interactive training program that exposes your team to the Flawless ExecutionSM . Cycle through an exciting experiential learning format. The Flawless ExecutionSM Cycle is a simple, scalable and endlessly repeatable process that helps individuals, teams and organizations rapidly adapt to change and improve execution and learning. Participants will utilize their learning in a simulation where each member is assigned a unique role requiring their involvement in order to create a common challenge for their entire team to debrief against. Consequently, the scenario develops teamwork and coordination. At the end of the day, participants will be equipped with tools they can immediately apply in their teams. This is the only team building program on the market that can accommodate groups of 30 to 2000.
Rapid Planning Workshop
The Rapid Planning Workshop can be added to any Keynote or Afterburner Day. Participants will take away how to develop quick, tactical plans using our combat-proven planning process. Individually or in small functional groups, participants identify a can’t fail mission to begin applying Flawless Execution. Using the Six Steps to Mission Planning, the Afterburner team will help the participants plan out a roadmap for success. The individuals will identify a clear, measurable achievable mission objective, threats, resources, lessons learned from previous missions and develop a course of action that will yield success. When your group leaves, everyone will have a plan that they can begin executing the very next day. But more than just a plan, participants will walk away equipped with a new planning process that enables them to create strong plans quickly for flawless performance in tight time lines.
