Ranger Rally Points

 Based on the leadership principles of the US Army Rangers Dean Hohl, author of Rangers Lead the Way, has created this exciting seminar series. Ranger Rally Points are team building and leadership seminars designed as indoor sessions. Many of our clients have had great success using these seminars in a lunch and learn format. While designed as indoor sessions, we can add these activities to any course at your request. The In-house leadership seminars include: 

Lead, Manage, and Change

This course is designed to distinguish the differences between leadership and management. It will identify specific leadership and management behaviours and illustrate when each is appropriate. On that foundation, the emotional cycle of change is discussed and participants learn to apply certain leadership behaviours to help move people effectively through change. Finally, teams are defined and the only real competitive advantage is understood, the People.
Optimal Class size: 12 to 25 participants
Time: 2 hrs


The Four Factors of Leadership and The Decision Making Continuum

Leading effectively requires a complete analysis and understanding of the four factors of leadership: the led, the leader, the situation, and communication. Participants learn to identify those four factors of leadership and how they affect each other and mission or task accomplishment. With the foundation of the four factors of leadership, the decision-making continuum is analyzed and six decision making styles are discussed. Participants learn when and how to employ all six styles in order to be effective.

Leadership Styles

Leadership is the process of influencing others to accomplish a task by providing purpose, direction, and motivation. By definition a great leader is one who is able to influence others to accomplish a task. The personal style the leader adopts will determine the extent to which influence is accepted and acted upon. This workshop identifies the different styles available for leaders in any given situation. Once again, we learn that one style is not always correct. Understanding which style to apply when and how is the key to unlocking the participant's leadership potential.

Time: 1.5 hrs


Sensory Based Communication

Participants learn to identify effective communication from ineffective communication and acquire specific active listening skills. Each participant learns the three communication channels, which channel is their preference, how to identify the channel preferences of others, and how best to communicate with each preference channel. An in depth analysis of sorting styles is also conducted which identifies sixteen different ways in which people process information. Understanding the communication channels and sorting styles is linked back to ensure effective communication.

Giving and Receiving Feedback

How often do we think, feel, or know something that we do not share with colleagues because we are afraid that the exchange of information will damage the relationship? The real question is.... How effective could we become if we could learn to constructively give and receive reinforcing and re-directive feedback in a way that allows us to work better together? This workshop properly defines feedback, provides the model to give and receive feedback, and allows participants to practice using the model.

Time: 2 hrs


Beliefs, Values, Norms, and Dealing with Conflict

Dealing with conflict begins with an understanding of its origin. An interactive discussion is held with participants on beliefs, values, & norms. The connection to conflict is established and participants begin to build the foundation for dealing effectively with conflict. Through a video tape demonstration and an experiential scenario, participants learn and apply successful strategies and techniques for dealing with conflict. This workshop goes beyond compromise to the ultimate level of collaboration.
Optimal Class size: 12 to 25 participants
Time: 2.5 hrs


Planning and Time Management

The success or failure of a mission or task is often dependent on the quality of the plan. In the Ranger world, success or failure means the difference between life and death. Planning and time management are not optional. This workshop delivers the tips, techniques, and procedures used by today's US Army Rangers to develop an operations plan and manage the available time. Upon completion of this workshop participants will have the tools necessary to develop a detailed and realistic plan - complete with contingencies and alternatives. Whether the project is big or small, this time tested and battlefield proven methodology will enhance your chances for dramatic success.
Optimal Class size: 12 to 25 participants
Time: 3.5 hrs


Effective Meeting Management

Meetings, meetings, meetings!!! What would it be worth to have fewer, more effective meetings that always end in action and behaviour that are meaningfully different than before the meeting? This workshop engages the participants in a series of discussions that uncovers specific tips and techniques for having successful meetings including the roles for meeting participants and controlling the agenda. Using a video tape presentation and in depth discussion, participants leave with the tools necessary to have highly effective meetings.
Optimal Class size: 12 to 25 participants

"What I hear, I forget.
What I see, I remember.
What I do, I understand."

- Kung Fu Tzu (Confucius)

"I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think."
- Socrates

"The only kind of learning which significantly influences behavior is self-discovered or self-appropriated learning - truth that has been assimilated in experience."
- Carl Rogers

"There can be no knowledge without emotion. We may be aware of a truth, yet until we have felt its force, it is not ours. To the cognition of the brain must be added the experience of the soul."
- Arnold Bennett (1867-1931), British Novelist.

"For learning to take place with any kind of efficiency students must be motivated. To be motivated, they must become interested. And they become interested when they are actively working on projects which they can relate to their values and goals in life."
