Why Choose SLC?


Experience

We have extensive experience in the development and presentation of a variety of subjects in resident and distant education venues as well as the conduct of academic research, writing, and leading battlefield staff rides (for a complete list see our Competencies below). Our team of former senior military and Foreign Service Officers has years of practical experience leading and managing high-performing organizations. They have practiced what they teach and are experts. In addition to being graduates of the U.S. military’s intermediate level education (e.g., Command and General Staff College) and senior service colleges, many have joint service backgrounds as we ll as expertise in homeland security. Several also have formal, civilian education credentials in leadership and management. All members have or had security clearances, and are eligible to upgrade their clearances if required.
