Military Command & Control ‘Advanced’
You are told by your senior officer that you are going to do recon with your team. You are leaving in 48 hours. Together with your team, you start analyzing and planning the job, after which orders are given. Do you know what to do?
About the course
You want to learn the ins and outs of the military decision-making process. As a prospective NCO or officer, you’re eager to continue your development and learn how to issue orders and deliver other military briefings in a professional manner. In this three-day training program, you will learn about various leadership styles in depth and the situations most appropriate to use them in. The expression “with military precision” definitely applies when it comes to communicating on the battlefield. In this training, we combine practical exercises and the latest theoretical knowledge to show you how to get your career as a military leader off to a running start.
Our international team of instructors has a broad range of experiences and perspectives to share with you, allowing you to look at this topic not only through a Dutch lens, but from American and English viewpoints as well. This will ensure you are optimally prepared to provide the most professional briefings in an international setting.
Abraham Lincoln once said: “Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” This same principle applies to the military planning and decision-making process. After the training, you will be able to make the most of those first 4 hours to best prepare your team for the mission ahead.
The fact is that you must be able to get your message across to a group in a clear and unambiguous way. It doesn’t matter if this involves 8 or 30 people, you must have the confidence to stand in front of a group. Practice, practice, practice: that’s the secret! Now you get the chance to practice with the best communication instructors in the world. You will get a little better every day in a neutral, safe learning environment at AFG.
In three days
Invest in yourself and in just three days you will be back up to date with the best presentation techniques. There won’t be a single thing you don’t understand in the military planning and decision-making process. Because our instructors are all highly experienced former service members and the best civilian experts, you won’t get this much value anywhere else in such a short time.
