PRLog - April 16, 2012 - VENICE, Fla. -- Performance Transformation, LLC™ (Venice, FL) announced today that their founder and Managing Partner, Terry Murray, discusses Equine Facilitated Leadership Development in an article in today's print edition of the Investors Business Daily.
The Lessons of Military Leadership
"It was a fun interview," commented Mr. Murray. "The opportunity to share our highly innovative, evidence-based approach to leadership development, in such a venerable business newspaper is both an honor and a privilege. The IBD has long been my favorite daily paper."
Terry is a veteran of Naval Intelligence and the co-creator of the pro bono "Warriors in Transition" program. The workshop is designed to assist combat veterans, their family members and caregivers successfully navigate the deployment cycle and eventual return to civilian life. Conducted as part of an integrative therapeutic approach for veterans and families grappling with PTSD and PTSD with Traumatic Brain Injury, Performance Transformation has introduced the program in Arizona, Florida, Hawaii, Colorado and is introducing the program to Missouri next week. The program was formally commended by General David Petraeus in 2010.
"The leadership lessons imparted in me at a very young age by the Navy have shaped the trajectory of my career in very deep and meaningful ways," added Terry. "These core values, of being of service to others, of being accountable for your comrades' lives and safety never leaves you. The team cohesion in the military is remarkable, and it all begins with the individual leadership skills they begin teaching us on day one."
Mr. Murray's book, "The Transformational Entrepreneur ~ Engaging The Mind, Heart & Spirit For Breakthrough Business Success", was recently cited in the March, 2012 edition of the academic Journal For Economic Literature for its thought leadership and contribution to the field of management.
"The leadership skills the military imparts are exactly what corporations need in today's highly complex, multi-cultural and multi-generational global workplace. We're not taught to be automatons, we're taught to be highly adaptive to meet unprecedented challenges, and to do so as a highly cohesive team. The core leadership competencies I learned serving our great nation set the foundation for a remarkable corporate and entrepreneurial career. It's wonderful to bring these lessons, which have been burnished over two decades of real-world business leadership experience to others, especially my fellow veterans."
