“We Survive Solo but Win Together.” Waldo

Cooperation. Communication. Commitment

Business should be about cooperation, communication, and a commitment to a core set of values that serve others.

It’s about relationships and results. Since my days as a fighter pilot and in 2003 when I started my speaking business, I’ve learned that in business and life, we survive solo, but win together. True success is a bi-product of partnerships, collaboration and mutual trust. With our constantly changing business landscape, we need to break free of the combat mindset that is prevalent in a lot of the business community and embrace a culture of trust instead. Just like well-trained fighter pilots, well-trained organizations should never enter into combat. A great business strategy does not seek confrontation and should achieve its objectives without it.

Preparation and Trust in Leadership

True, business is often competitive, highly stressful, and requires a tremendous amount of sacrifice.

However, no matter how we look at it, our lives are never truly at risk in business as they are in actual combat.  We can still learn valuable lessons by exploring how we would perform if we were actually in combat and apply it to business. By diligently preparing for each business mission and trusting in our leadership to provide a strategic vision and a set of objectives that are understood by all, we can maximize our ability to win. If we learn to overcome our fears, take courageous risks, and focus on the mission rather than ourselves, we can break performance barriers that have been limiting our growth.
