Afterburner Australia & New Zealand is a team of fighter pilots who are passionate about helping business learn and apply the same techniques to achieve mission success that worked for them in their air force careers.
Fighter Pilots operate in some of the most rapidly changing, complex and hostile environments on Earth, yet they consistently excel in achieving planned outcomes. Why is it so?
They are certainly intellectually, physiologically and psychologically the ‘right stuff’ and of course they learn and practice a wide range of flying, navigation, fighting etc. skills to a level of proficiency only a few attain.
Fighter pilots are also particularly adept at maintaining clear focus on objectives in the midst of complexity. This is a learned skill too, that relies on simple and repeatable processes to get things done, but unlike their other skills it requires no special talent. They are a critical part of the ‘fighter pilot way’ that anyone can learn and it’s the ‘secret sauce’ of Afterburner’s FLEX process.
Afterburner brings the fighter pilot way to business. They are the custodians of a simple process developed by fighter pilots over 60 years ago. This process significantly improved the performance of military aviation, and is so effective it is still in use today. To enable organisations outside the military to develop and foster a similar high performance culture, Afterburner tailored this process for use in business and called it Flawless Execution (or “FLEX” for short) – a cycle of PLAN, BRIEF, EXECUTE and DEBRIEF.
FLEX is a simple, scalable, continuous improvement process that can help you align everyone in your organisation with your vision, drive individual accountability and address the complex environment that is business today. It can be used to identify execution gaps in your strategy before you make the substantial investment to execute it. Once you have a firm strategy, FLEX is used to develop the detail to get it done.
Afterburner Australia provides high performance coaching and programs, from dynamic keynotes to experiential workshops focused on team building, leadership development, business planning and debriefing. They are high energy, contain a strong takeaway message and are customised to your business or event objectives. By the end of an Afterburner program, your team will feel motivated to excel in their environment.
