Military Suite for Strong Individuals & Families
Serving your country is one of the most noble things you can do. It can also pose unique challenges. In addition to the routine difficulties of life that all people face, service members and their families must also deal with the stress of deployment, separation from family and friends, and the realities of combat. Unmanaged stress can potentially lead to high-risk behaviors impacting individual readiness and unit mission success.
However, with the right preparation and education, service members can learn how to turn challenges into opportunities, establish a winning vision for their lives and their families, and develop the mindset and skillset to make this vision a reality. They can truly thrive.
A society cannot rise above the strength of its families.
Since 2005, FranklinCovey has partnered with the U.S. Military to deliver custom courses to service members and their families, based on proven principles from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People® and The Speed of Trust®. We offer two powerful suites of content, which can by delivered Live In-Person or Live-Online, by FranklinCovey or our certified military chaplain facilitators.
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®
Participants learn how to:
- Take initiative and responsibility.
- Define their personal and family missions, visions, and values.
- Apply planning and time-management skills.
- Communicate and listen effectively.
- Resolve interpersonal conflicts.
- Value differences and build on strengths.
- Build resilience through self-renewal.
The Speed of Trust®
Participants learn how to:
- Build, restore, and extend trust in all relationships -particularly those that mean the most to us.
- Increase their personal credibility with themselves, their spouses, and family members.
- Apply the language of trust inside and outside their homes.
- Create an action plan based on the 13 Behaviors® of High Trust.
Since 2005, our content has reached over one million soldiers, service members, and families through the instruction of certified military chaplain facilitators.
Spouse of Service Member“My husband was returning home from a 7-month deployment. We had talked almost every day but the distance still made it hard. His National Guard unit provided Speed of Trust training for Military Families for us spouses at home, as prep for their return. My soldier and I started using the trust behavior cards on our FaceTime calls. He thought it was weird at first, but he’s been home three weeks now, and we use the cards every day. Even with the kids.”
Chaplain“Life on post was never easy, and then Covid hit, and so many spouses were now living with their soldier at home. Always underfoot, usually in the way. We were overwhelmed by couples asking for counseling. We brought in Speed of Trust for Marriages, and that same week, the calls for counseling started to drop. We still have all the usual marital squabbles, but a weekly trust huddle handles most of them.”
Chaplain“As I told you in the class, I’m not a planner. Life is supposed to be fun. Spontaneous. My wife did not see it that way, and we argued about everything. You saw some of that on day one. Day two was better, but things began to really shift when we got home. We had new words—proactivity, Big Rocks, Win-Win—that helped us stop talking in circles and to focus in on ‘what mattered most.’ Thanks for the new tool kit.“
Service Member“My Brigade Chaplain pushed for the Speed of Trust for Strong Soldiers, and it really made us think about what we thought we knew. We saw that we had been operating in silos. After the course, we started building greater communication and even listening to each other openly. We got it right this time.”
Upcoming Certification Events
Every year we hold certification events for military personnel to get certified to teach and deploy the FranklinCovey solutions in their units. These events are sponsored by the Army, Air Force, and National Guard. Below is a list of events that have already been scheduled, with more to come.
