BP McCoy is a retired Marine Corps Officer with extensive leadership experience in the most demanding and unforgiving environments on six of the seven continents. He was decorated multiple times for valor and wounds received in battle while leading a Task Force that spearheaded the 2003 invasion of Iraq, toppled the Saddam Statue in Baghdad, and fought house to house in Fallujah in 2004. Upon retiring BP became an executive for a niche defense contractor firm delivering non-material solutions to special operations and US Government intelligence entities. BP moved on from business to focus exclusively on developing leadership skills in organizations and individuals.
BP believes that leadership is the X-Factor…the difference that makes a difference that will enable one organization to outcompete another in any contested environment, from battlefield to boardroom. When a leader is successful he or she is able to ‘create belief’ in the mission, the vision and in each other. In doing so not only does the bottom line benefit, but one adds value to peoples lives and one retains the best employees.
