Storm Services offers an authentic approach to training and development. Our approach achieves greater organizational health and impact through strategies that equip the individual, as well as the team. Our training is preparedness training. Preparedness is a concept that indicates readiness in the face of a possible crisis. Even more, it indicates a willingness to be equipped with the skills and knowledge we all need in order to face the challenges of everyday life. We offer the training needed to prepare your team for a major disaster, but we also equip your individuals and teams to be influential and impactful every other day. During our training workshops, we emphasize the word “action.” A workshop shouldn’t just be about what’s on the worksheets, but what happens when groups of people come together to collaborate and share ideas.

PREPAREDNESS TRAINING
The following three levels represent the principles that we apply to preparedness training:

• Level 1

  • Individual Assessment: We equip individuals to identify individual strengths and expand their understanding of their impact and personal contribution.
  • Engagement with Others: We engage people individually to increase their engagement collectively. Research indicates the best way to increase engagement is to focus on individual areas of strength, and to build an environment to train and develop potential of strength. When focusing on strength development, people are six times more likely to be engaged in their jobs and three times as likely to report an excellent quality of life.
  • Communication Skills: Participants learn to communicate from a place of strength, why strengths contribute to success, and how to connect with others.

• Level 2

  • One-on-One Interviews: This interview process achieves a deeper, personal understanding and application of the skills and strengths learned in Level 1 Training. Personal interviews are specifically designed to foster a deeper understanding of their dominant strengths, key behaviors, right fit, and capacities for influence and leadership.
  • Team Positioning: We teach strategies for positioning people on and within teams: the right person, in the right place at the right time – all the time. Team membership includes individualized support of and responsibility for other team members.
  • Collective Feedback: As a team we need to be able to give and receive positive feedback. How we perceive ourselves may not be how others perceive us. We engage the team, using tools that teach how to participate in the feedback process.

• Level 3

  • COACHING is a catalyst for helping team members agree upon a common vision and strategy for the organization. Communication skill development will guide the team’s execution strategy, encouraging commitment to one another and to the organization. Throughout the coaching process, we take a snapshot of the communication needs and skill gaps of the overall team. We gain insights into solutions for moving forward, tap into people’s strengths, positioning them in the team, and help the team apply what has been learned. Getting people in sync and leveraging the talent and energy of your executive team will accelerate your business.

BASE CAMP EXERCISE
Each year, Storm Services hosts a training exercise at our facility in York, Alabama. During this time, our team is trained on the set up and the tear down of equipment, as well as other crucial skills that contribute to the success of our company. In the past, team members have received training on such things as CPR Training, AED Training, Communication in Crisis, Forklift Operator Training, Forklift Instructor Training, and Fire Hydrant Training. Members of our catering team are also ServSafe Certified, with a couple of team members being instructors and proctors.

During the final day of the Base Camp Exercise, our company hosts a showcase for current and potential customers. During this time, customers are able to view a full service base camp. Many customers use this showcase as a training exercise for their employees. Equipment is completely set up, allowing the customer to tour the base camp. Knowledgeable team members are present at all times to answer any questions that may come up. If you are interested in signing your team up for the upcoming base camp exercise, please contact Tommy Hopkins at Tommy@StormSL.com.


CONSULTING SERVICES
Storm Services offers consulting services that would benefit your company during a crisis, as well as in the everyday workplace. We believe that we offer a fresh perspective to emergency practices and procedures. Our team will work to develop an emergency plan, or propose improvements to your current plan.

Our first step will be to conduct a needs assessment, evaluating the strengths and weakness of any current plans. Our team will help facilitate tabletop discussions, opening up the lines of communication between your team members. After this, we will develop an emergency plan for your company.

Following the development of an emergency plan, Storm Services offers training on this plan to your team members. These training seminars can take place on site at your place of business or at our offices in York, Alabama. If you choose, a fully operational base camp can be set up, allowing your team members to experience first hand what an emergency situation would feel like.
