3 Disciplines

Developing Leaders

Creating high performing organizations by triangulating the best leadership practices of three elite disciplines:

U.S. Navy SEALs

Characterized by grit, unconventional approaches, integrity, fostering trust, and building high-performance teams who excel in uncertain environments.

Professional Sports

Characterized by teamwork, leading by example, performance under pressure, and leveraging diversity as a competitive advantage to build a winning culture of excellence.

Executive Business

Characterized by accountability, technical expertise, adaptability, and exceptional communication skills to articulate a vision and strategy, inspire, and build commitment.

Our Unique Approach

In today’s business climate, leaders face unprecedented challenges as society rapidly changes and technology accelerates. As a leader, you are expected to deliver superior results in a world of both opportunity and obstacles. Now more than ever, you need exposure to tools from unconventional sources and disciplines that excel in developing leaders. That’s where TRIDIS Leadership comes into the picture.

At TRIDIS Leadership, we are passionate about developing exceptional leaders and have made it our mission. After understanding our client’s needs, we combine the most effective leadership lessons and skills from three disciplines: U.S. Navy SEALs, professional sports, and executive business, to create a customized development plan devoted to making the best and brightest leaders more effective and ready for increased levels of responsibility. 

Leadership is foundational to success in every life endeavor, and we know first-hand that it is a teachable skill. TRIDIS Leadership partners with individuals, teams, and organizations to deliver our cross-functional expertise, research, and practical experience. We synthesize effective leadership practices from these three commanding disciplines into specific ‘leadership truths’ and action steps. By delivering customized and innovative solutions underpinned by research, experience, and proven neurological applications, we strive to continuously raise the bar in leadership development.

Finally, we understand that enduring change requires follow-through, which is why we stay connected to the client until the desired behavioral changes are achieved and sustained. This is another practice that makes us different.

At TRIDIS Leadership, we provide a range of customized services based on a client’s needs and desired outcomes. We focus on leadership development at the individual, team, or organization level. Additionally, we provide unique keynote leadership talks that provide powerful insights and best practices from ninety years of collective experience in U.S. Navy SEALs, professional sports, and executive business.

We get to know our clients by first conducting a comprehensive assessment to identify their needs and goals. Following the assessment, we develop a customized leadership development plan in collaboration with the client. Once the plan is finalized, we begin implementation in person until completion. Our development plans are flexible in duration and may involve a single event or an iterative process lasting weeks or months. Research demonstrates that lasting change requires follow-up and accountability, which is why our team stays partnered with our clients well after the initial implementation to ensure the changes are maintained and enduring.

TRIDIS Leadership is distinctly different from other consulting firms that are often static in design and one dimensional in approach. In contrast, TRIDIS Leadership leverages the expertise, research, and practical experience of three demanding disciplines that excel in cultivating exceptional leaders: U.S. Navy SEALs, professional sports, and executive business. We provide customized leadership development plans by carefully determining our client’s needs, then thoughtfully triangulating our multi-discipline expertise around the client.
