Afterburner Speaking Topics

The Fighter Pilot Mindset

Do you sometimes feel like your business (or life!) is running you, and you’re on the ride? We call that “falling behind the airplane”. You want to be ahead of the airplane - driving your life and business in the right direction! One-step ahead, making great decisions, becoming the person or team you always knew you could be.

Task Saturation

We’ve all experienced it! We'll help explain what to do when you have too much on your plate and you’re lacking the time, tools, or resources to achieve success.

Flawless Execution

FLEX, or “Flawless Execution”- the ability to take an idea or strategy and get it executed on a daily basis at every level of your organization through an intuitive cycle of PLAN, BRIEF, EXECUTE and DEBRIEF.

Flawless Leadership

Leadership made simple. Our elite military experience enables us to develop strong, effective leaders in a very short amount of time — all with a proven system for continuous leadership development training.

The Debrief Culture

Imagine an environment where everyone has a say, you’re constantly adapting and evolving to the world around you and you're able to work in a radically transparent and accountable environment. That’s a debrief culture, we’ll show you how.
