BeSWAT was exactly what our sales team needed as we prepared for a new competitor. In the medical world, we tend to go through multiple workshops on an annual basis to become better leaders, communicators and sales people. Mike Hargraves was able to bring a unique new outlook to what we do and how we do it, past, present and future. As you go through Mikes programs, you quickly figure out, it’s not about teaching people how to become better leaders, communicators and sales people, it’s about the preparation you put in, the people and resources you have access to and the strategic plan you implement, the leadership, communication and leveraging of strengths seem to surface naturally when you do it right.

Mike left our company captivated, motivated and utterly inspired! Days later our employees were still talking about how he expanded the way they thought about things. He uses insightful clues into the mindset of how powerful organizations/groups cohesively accomplish their target and how that can be duplicated in anyone's everyday life. I'm very impressed! We will definitely be using Mike for further events as a tool for empowering our own people.
I can count on one hand the number of people I have met in my life that I would trust my life to. Mike gets the number 1 spot. I don't say that lightly as he has proven that distinction many times. I would not hesitate to recommend Mike for whatever endeavor he puts his mind to. If you want a guy that has been there and done that, and excelled at all of it......he's your guy!

At Rockwell we invest in our staff because they are family. BeSWAT Trainings takes this to a whole new level. It’s fun and engaging, but most importantly the participants walk away with a warriors mindset and a drive to be the best at what they do. The teamwork and leadership strategies are game changers for any organization big or small. Mike is a highly effective trainer and uses his unique approach to bring out the very best in everyone. I strongly recommend BeSWAT Trainings to any organization looking to take their game to the next level.
This was the best course I have taken to date with Genentech. They took feedback from previous courses and really applied it to this course. The activities helped compliment the learning. I enjoyed the back and forth from presentation to workshops and brainstorming with teammates to back to presentation again. It was incredibly well-planned and had a very good flow that kept you engaged throughout. Mike Hargraves, speaker, was amazing. His amazing experiences as a member of a SWAT team and demonstrations to drive home key points regarding the value of teamwork kept the attention and interest of the group throughout the entire day! Excellent course that all should take. THANK YOU!
I really enjoyed the bSWAT presentation and I think was interesting to think about how we can employ some of those tactics. I learned A LOT about the other brands and the specific challenges they are facing. It really made me WANT to help out my GIO teammates in any way I can! I enjoy the X Brand collaboration and I think we should do more of it on a regular basis!
Really liked the concepts and Mike Hargraves was great at inserting very relevant examples to get his point across. A different sort of presentation than I have seen previously and I appreciated the innovative component. Encourages more sharing honestly. I think we assume that the basics are happening in every franchise or that people always share new and innovative ideas and that isn't always the case. This workshop also just encouraged me to reach out to people outside of my franchise- there are so many exceptional people to learn from in this company.
I loved the presentation and also really loved getting time to hear about the other brands and hearing their challenges. I learned that we all have similar challenges and that we can help each other where certain products overlap.
