United Safety Discovers Innovative Safety and Leadership Training with Top Corporate Development Consulting Firm

Two consultants from Afterburner® led 30 leaders from the safety equipment and services provider through the Flawless Execution® model in Calgary, Canada last week

Atlanta, March 11, 2013 — a large meeting room in Calgary was the site of high-energy fighter pilot videos, intensive training, and a comprehensive mission planning exercise last week. Far from the usual meeting, the dynamic event was hosted by two fighter pilot consultants with the leading management consulting firm, Afterburner, and featured the firm's distinguished Flawless Execution® model. A marriage of combat-proven military practices and a communication-based management style, the model provides a holistic approach to improving daily practices to meet and exceed organization goals.

The event was led by Afterburner EVP of Safety and Leadership Development and retired 20th Commanding Officer of the U.S.S. Enterprise, Ron "Beav" Horton, and F/A-18 pilot and active reservist, John "Hitman" Hilterman. Both men have immense experience in the model's applicability in hostile and dangerous environments—when executing flawlessly becomes a matter of life or death. By translating military tactics to the business world, Afterburner successfully equips its clients with a strategic organizational approach that revolutionizes daily processes to attain the highest quality output.

As a leading safety services and products provider, United Safety's success in upstream and downstream industrial gas exploration continues to grow. Through its commitment to innovation, United Safety has increasingly expanded its repertoire in recent years, helping to advance oil & gas exploration and production around the world. With the Flawless Execution® model, brand leaders will surpass current production by eliminating internal conditions that can cause errors and hinder growth.

The model is a unique management approach that facilitates open communication and collaboration. Considered one of today's most relevant business models, its mass implementation by corporations around the globe has been driven by a stagnant economic recovery and an increasingly competitive business environment. The process targets the various culprits of counter-productivity and inefficiency within an organization by creating accountable actions across all levels of a company.
