Silouan graduated from Vanderbilt University and then accepted a commission in the United States Marine Corps. While serving in the Marines, Silouan was involved in a jet training accident. In the ejection, Silouan's back was broken and his co-pilot tragically killed. This horrible event and the complications that followed led to the development of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD. He was disability discharged and then had to learn to put hislife back together. It began with a two-year motorcycle journey where he learned to live. He then devoted the rest of his life to service and helping others overcome trauma. He has written three books, “The Ladder UPP”, “Who Am I?”, and “Sycamore Hill”.

Course Objectives

Increase Morale and Build Leaders

Improve your time management and delegation skills

Help your officers better make the transition home

Create a mentally resilient team


This course, utilizing practical exercises and department tested theories, teaches the core principles needed of every leader from new recruit to chief. Leadership is not a rank, it is the ability to take people somewhere. We break this down into:


  1. The Character of Leadership- who you are is the most important factor in leadership. More importantly, how do you teach these characteristics to those you lead in a consistent, unbiased way.
  2. The Vision of Leadership- Where are you taking your team? Leaders take people places. Clear vision and goals create improved morale and performance.
  3. The Accountability of Leadership- Accountability is a two-way street, how do you hold your team accountable? Better yet, how do they hold you accountable?


Organizations that are built on a foundation of leadership have better esprit de corps, higher performance, clearer goals and communication, and are more resilient to the challenges in an increasingly dynamic world. The attendee will learn from real life examples, practical application, and lessons from historically great leaders andteachers.

"Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without strategy"-Norman Schwarzkopf


“Leaders become great, not becauseof their power, but because of their ability to empower.” John C. Maxwell
