“Look for those who can make you better and welcome those whom you can
improve. This is reciprocal; men learn when they teach.” Seneca
The Role of All
Since we want to grow quickly, we have a
simple, lean organizational structure with roles for people who come to us in
different situations. We define four different roles in the organization.
The Science of Strategy Institute is
the publishing organization that provides a central branding and distribution
center. The Institute does not do any real training itself. It delivers its
products through the trainers in its training
In our network, Master Trainers
are business owners who operate their local Science of Strategy Institute training
branches, offering all our training courses, working with other Masters to
develop our materials. They grow in their geographical areas by developing the Apprentice Trainers working
While few people, if any, are capable of acting
as Master Trainers on their first day in our network, we want to enlist new
trainers as Independent Trainers
who open to the possibility of moving up to that position in time. Independents are licensed to present our materials but do not operate formal
branch. They are often in a
transitional role, moving toward a situation in which they can become a Master.
They are not limited by geography, but they also cannot bring in apprentices to
work with them. They are also not required to present all our standard courses.
Trainers are experience in business and have given presentations as
spokespeople, but they are new to professional training. They work under the tutelage of
a Master in a given geographical area.
Note: We also license Internal Trainers
to use our materials within the organization that employs them. These trainers’ roles are defined by their employing organization, not the Institute.
To obtain an Organizational Training License, you simply go through
the application process.
