Simply stated, our mission is to provide educational, faith based, corporate, law enforcement and military professionals the highest quality active shooter response training and consulting services. In addition we provide security, safety and tactical training/consulting solutions for all types of public entities as well. Solutions that are both applicable and based in reality is critical to successfully applying these strategies and solutions when needed.
Strategos International training and consulting strategies have been developed through years of “hands on” education, experience and client feedback to our founders and staff. Strategies and content are presented in a manner that is “principle based” and is designed to be customizable and scalable depending on the client’s unique requirements.
Summarized the CREED of our training and consulting services are that “CAPABILITY breeds HUMILITY”. In other words we believe that the more TRUE capability that a person (OR organization) is given to handle situations that are otherwise stressful or crisis oriented the more humility that they will handle these situations with. In other words crisis situations are more likely to be handled effectively and appropriately if the end user feels more capable to handle them rather than a situation unnecessarily being escalated because the end user is operating from a “fear based” mind set due to lack of capabilities received prior to the crisis incident.
Very impressed with the course and am able to take away many action plans!
This course made us more aware. We will look at the policies we do have and see what we can improve upon to train our employees better.
The information on lockdown was very helpful and we plan to look at our location in a different light!
Outstanding presentation. Way to incorporate biblical principles into core mission of church! This course will help the church with implementing a sound security plan/policy.
We get many threats, so new information and ideas are always welcome. Excellent presentation and information.
My background in teaching in a correctional facility and Division of Youth Services facility has not prepared me for an intruder in a public school setting. This course has done that. I now feel more confident in working with my colleagues in keeping my students safe and secure. February 2, 2013
Very useful and applicable information. Easy to follow, good use of materials, handouts, etc.
Not only in depth knowledge of subject matter but obvious passion for the cause and a great heart for the student. [This training] confirms all the good things we have already done and adds considerably to the bag of tricks we are building going forward. Great information and well worth the investment.
[Instructor’s] passion for the subject was obvious in his delivery. Fun, interesting class. I saw many things I could (and will) implement into our existing program! Good use of my time.
This was an excellent presentation that covered many areas of church security. The presenter was well informed on the material presented and kept my attention the entire time. It was apparent [he] is passionate about the topic of church security and has a caring attitude.
If we communicate anything clearly through this report & service to our clients it is the following: We first and foremost give GOD the credit!
. . . for what we do and how we do it. We try to remain humble in our approach and attempt to effectively serve those who serve others according to:
Romans 13 : 3-7
3For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. 4For he is God’s servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God’s servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. 5Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience. 6This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. 7Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
Our approach is based on time tested and proven concepts/strategies and training methodologies. It will continue to evolve and change over time, as we interact with those who we serve and we find more efficient ways of training and operating and as mission requirements and crime trends change.
The format in which we reveal that reality is simply our style…one style of many acceptable styles. It is a style in which we train WITH the student NOT “pontificate from on high”. We believe that the journey for professionalism and measurable, positive results never ends and that we as instructors should also be perpetual students.
When we founded Strategos International we initially were particularly focused on tactical law enforcement and military related topics. We still maintain an extremely strong commitment in this area of study. However, we have incrementally added additional focus areas as time and resources have permitted. We are passionate about our presentations and endeavor to approach all training sessions as servants to our clients.
SIMPLY PUT – Our mission to our training and consulting clients is to demonstrate CAPABILITY with HUMILITY. In addition to demonstrating both of these traits we strive to provide a high level of “capability” to allow our clients the “ability” to effectively handle a wide array of high stress and low level situations that relate to the safety and security situations. We believe that there is NO SHORTCUT to achieving the skill set(s) required to achieving these goals & objectives other than combining the necessary “HARDWARE” (equipment) with the proper application of “SOFTWARE” (training).
It should be recognized by all that this journey of achieving the outlined goals & objectives is not a destination that is arrived at, but a never ending journey of improvements, education and implementations as operating environments change and personnel behaviors & crime trends evolve.
