At Marshall, we believe that tactical training shouldn't be limited to weapons and hand to hand combat, but that it should include how we wield our words. Our mission is to make tactical communication relevant and available to non-tactical communicators, thereby equipping leaders and organizations to navigate conflict more effectively.
We believe in the value of Preserving Character, that one should never do or say anything to cause character to come into question. We exemplify the value of Maintaining Composure and aim to be the calm in the midst of chaos. We focus on the value of Balanced Control and endeavor to steward well over that which we can control, and to effectively prepare for that which we cannot.
We provide conflict training and resolution services to individuals and organizations alike. Through One-on-One Coaching, Team and Corporate Training, Workshops, Speaking Events and more, we help our clients obtain a tactical advantage over conflict and tension.
Our unique methodology is rooted in strategic communication principles such as multi-disciplinary collaboration, stakeholder identification and engagement, and reputation management. It simultaneously includes deconfliction, message encoding and decoding analysis, as well as critical capability and vulnerability assessments. Combined, this approach allows those in conflict to go beyond perceived conflict and attack the deep root causes of conflict that often go unaddressed.
