Perform On The X
Using the Warrior Mindset to Meet All of Life’s Challenges

Ideal Audience: Sales, Leadership, Pharma, Financial, Doctors, Law Enforcement, First Responders & anyone that must perform under pressure or face mental challenges.

In the SEAL Teams, the X refers to the most critical and dangerous point of the operation; fast roping from a helicopter onto the rooftop of an enemy building, a coordinated attack on an enemy compound, or operating deep behind enemy lines. This is the point of NO RETURN where a SEAL must be at their best.

No matter where and no matter the circumstance, it’s critical that SEALS perform at their best “on the X” in each of these moments.

While in the boardroom instead of the battlefield, it may not be life or death, but there are still critical moments where the pressure is on, and we absolutely need to bring our A-game.

When the stakes are this high, we must be focused, resilient, and well prepared.

As the Co-Creator of The U.S. Navy Warrior Toughness program, Stephen teaches how the same techniques used by the Navy & SEAL operators can be applied to leading & developing high-performance teams in businesses as well to individuals in their personal and professional lives.
