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.
[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.
Excellent program of instruction. Instructor kept students engaged throughout the blocks of instruction. Would highly recommend this course to any organization that either is starting up a security program or would just like a quick check to see if your security program is on track.
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.
We get many threats, so new information and ideas are always welcome. Excellent presentation and information.
This day will forever change how I approach school and home safety. My students, I believe, are safer for me having attended this training!! The instructor was Amazing!! October 18, 2012
Made me much more aware of all the different things to think about and how IMPORTANT it is. The practical exercises made my heart race but was important to go thru to get an idea of what it would be like in real life.
I totally dreaded going to Friday’s professional development for Sedalia #200 Public School. I was very nervous about how the topic would be presented and I did NOT want to participate in the simulated intruder scenarios. HOWEVER, today I am REALLY GLAD that I attended. I left feeling empowered and grateful about what I learned. It was one of the best professional development trainings that I have ever attended.
Excellent course! The presentation was informative, interesting and eye opening!! The afternoon session was so beneficial. Hands on practice made me feel more empowered and safe!! Instructor was very knowledgeable, prepared and entertaining! I am so glad I attended the course!! I highly recommend it! August 6, 2012
This was amazing! I think every teacher should take this class. It prepares you much better than any college class I ever took!
The presentation and information are invaluable! The real world scenarios are educational and nerve wracking, which is exactly what we teachers and staff need to be exposed to and taught to handle!! Thank you for all you do to open eyes and minds to this very serious issue!!! August 6, 2012
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.
