Workshops / Programs

The following is a sampling of the currently available keynotes, workshops and programs from APG's Athletic division. Timeframes can be adjusted as required, varying in duration from one hour to a full day. All events, classes and practical sessions are facilitated by APG’s team of retired US Navy SEALs and Special Operations personnel. Topics can be combined and modified as needed to provide a fully personalized, immersive experience.

APG's "The Standard"  


The Standard is the cornerstone of APG’s foundational program.  It translates across all industries and provides the framework for an improved “team first” culture and acts as a blueprint for your organization to hold each other accountable, take responsibility for their success and provides “buy in” towards achieving your organizational goals..

Leadership Lessons Learned from a Career as a Special Operator – With a combined 125+ years of experience in Special Operations around the globe, APG staff has learned a thing or two about what makes a good leader.  This session explores leadership from the Navy SEAL / Spec Ops perspective, and looks at how these lessons apply directly to the corporate world.​


Embrace the Suck ® 

The Special Ops Formula for becoming an elite performer –​ Anyone can function at a high level when the conditions are ideal, however, the most essential element to the SEAL’s success is being able to function at an elite level when things go sideways.  Developing the ability to not only tolerate undesirable conditions, but to welcome it eliminates the effects of performance anxiety.  This session exposes clients to the unique mindset of a SEAL operator and demonstrates how to reach peak performance levels under adverse conditions, as well as how to eliminate debilitating self-imposed limitations.


Forging the Elite ® – In the world of Special Operations, success (and even life) is dependent on the ability of each individual to consistently perform at their best.  This session deals with the topic of “peak performance” from the Spec Ops perspective, and discusses how each one of us can perform at a higher level at all times.   

Additional topics include:

Developing The Standard

Mental Toughness and Resilience


Team Cohesion


Team Dynamics


High Stress Decision Making
