THE SPARTAN MILITARY SYSTEM. Did you know...
The Spartans were the most elite fighting force in world history. They established a system of warfare so effective, hundreds defeated thousands, and thousands defeated tens of thousands. A system so extraordinary it’s secrets were hunted like treasure, ruthlessly protected, and replicated throughout the centuries with staggering success. From the spectacular last stand of Spartan King Leonidas, to the crushing victories of Alexander the Great. From the impossible triumphs of Julius Caesar to Alfred the Great’s shocking defeat of the Vikings.
THE 3 PILLARS OF PERFORMANCE
The Spartans simplified the complexities of battle into a 3-column training system called The 3 Pillars of Performance. A system so powerful it was adopted by Charlemagne, perfected by Napoleon, and brilliantly executed by Patton in WWII. From Roman Legionnaires to Navy SEALS, elite military leaders have been leveraging this remarkable system by focusing on the same 3 Pillars of Performance originally trained by the Spartans:
SKILL + METHODOLOGY + STRATEGY = SYSTEM
The Spartans knew when they combined weaponry SKILLS with a standardized combat METHODOLOGY and campaign-specific battle STRATEGY that they had a SYSTEM—a calculus for winning! A formula for success. They recognized that their greatest competitive advantage wasn’t in superior numbers, brute force or bravery. It was their system—the combined training and application of SKILL, METHODOLOGY and STRATEGY. A training system that gave the Spartans a tactical, psychological and competitive edge. A systematic approach to battle equally applicable to business. A holistic training model and implementation strategy characterized by both ancient Spartan Warriors and modern Spartan Presenters.
SALES—THE BATTLEFIELD OF BUSINESS
Like war, business has enemies and allies, leaders and legions, weaponry and strategy—battles with winners and losers. And no disrespect to accountants, but the battlefield of business is in the sales arena where there are wins and losses. Triumphs and defeats. And like ancient Spartans warriors, modern Spartan presenters trained in the Spartan Presentation System™ think, sell and present more effectively than their systemless competitors who don’t.
