Welcome to the A.C.E. program, a 52 week video series designed to help you create a flight plan to adapt to change, commit to excellence and break performance barriers.

Accountability. Commitment. Execution.

In the military, the “Top Guns” are the pilots who consistently hit their targets. They are intensely focused on training and improving their performance to make sure they win every mission.

The A.C.E. program was created by Waldo to teach you the same tools and techniques he learned as a top gun in the Air Force, so that you can apply these skills to your everyday life. This weekly video series will help you stay accountable to your goals, inspire you to live more courageously and win big in business and life all year long.

Sample Missions

Here are a few missions demonstrating the challenges the A.C.E. Program addresses each week.

 

A.C.E. Mission: Are You Engaged Or Supporting?

The key to building situational awareness (SA) is teamwork, and a critical component of teamwork is understanding one’s roles and responsibilities in every engagement. In combat, the way fighter pilots delineate roles and responsibilities is by having an engaged fighter and a supporting fighter.

The engaged fighter’s job is to take out (i.e. engage) the threat, while the supporting fighter’s job is to support that fighter by building SA, advising on other threats, and even taking over if necessary. The key to this collaborative relationship is staying focused on your responsibilities and staying disciplined in your role. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen!

 

A.C.E. Mission: Debrief After Every Mission

There is no such thing as a perfect mission. You can contingency plan and explore every detail, but a mission will never go as planned. There will always be things that pop up – changing weather, emergencies, unanticipated threats, human error, etc.

While a mission may not go flawlessly, Top Guns and high performing teams understand that there is always an opportunity to learn from mistakes and get better.
