“I have a far clearer path to take now…"

The Victory Way leadership guides serve and help those who have a desire to lead more effectively. We believe we know the way based on our success and our experience leading through crises while serving as fighter pilots in intense dynamic operational environments. The Victory Way is a continuation of a lifelong journey of learning, growing and leading. Our personal journeys have been sometimes tumultuous, sometimes tragic and yet consistently successful. Our vision in the next five years is to establish The Victory Way as a world class leadership development process.  Our passion is to translate our experiences to our clients’ world and to equip them with the tools they need to lead courageously when it matters most.


The Victory Way leadership framework and curriculum was created from a combination of our own operational leadership experiences with the fundamental foundations of leadership established by Admiral James Stockdale. Admiral Stockdale formulated his leadership fundamentals in one of the most extreme leadership crucibles any man has been forced to endure. Surviving and ultimately thriving for 7.5 years as a leader and a prisoner of war in a North Vietnamese prisoner of war camp. As committed and practicing believers of Admiral Stockdale, The Victory Way leadership framework translates his methods and theory into systematic tools that will fundamentally transform how you lead.


The Victory Way is a comprehensive leadership development process designed for leaders at all levels of an organization. This is a process not a program. We guide our clients on a journey from knowledge information and philosophy to consistent behavioral skills that influence and inspire desired outcomes. Outcomes that are aligned with shared values on the pathway to a shared vision.
