Tactical AnalysisHone Your Craft

The steps to becoming a pro.


Excelling in your field as a protector, warrior or guardian, and improving essential skills like situational awareness, judgement and decision-making are often left to tacit and unstructured development.


Without a process for collecting information, putting it together and being ready to act, professionals are left:

  • Without the ability to practice their observation and decision-making as deliberately as they do on the range.

  • Left hoping that each experience leads to a lesson learned and that they can learn fast enough

  • Making decisions more slowly because each interaction is processed as a new and novel situation.


While we don’t discard the value of gaining life experience, that doesn’t have to be the only way of excelling in your field or honing your craft any longer.

Here is how you do it:


1. Define behavior in segments that work everywhere (the 4 pillars of observable behavior), which eliminate the pain of relying on inconsistent sources of information when sizing up a situation and jumpstarting your decision-making process.

2. Practice putting that information together into a comprehensive and coherent baseline using the hasty search for quick searches and the deliberate search for the situations when you will spend an extended time in the area. This allows you to know what is normal, not normal, and know what you will do about each type of anomaly.

3. Practice and drill each observation and each process until it becomes natural, intuitive and are part of the way you operate.


The result of these steps is a process that you can use to anticipate events, break past events down for analysis, and improve your decisions and actions in the situations where you want to thrive.

While your peers are left hoping that they learn something each day, the process of defining behavior and establishing baselines taught in the Tactical Analysis course ensures that you take your understanding of people a little deeper with each repetition of the process.
