Southern Cross


At Southern Cross, we help organizations develop and sustain high-performance work teams. We believe small, talent-driven teams are an organization's best chance for success. Therefore, we strive...


To help growth-minded teams identify and leverage their strengths-based and value-aligned competencies for greater success.


To discover the importance of being, individually, sharp and pointy, casting away the desire to be well-rounded. To focus individual talents toward concerted balance creating engagement that is transformational, not transactional.


To increase collective impact and performance for overall greater satisfaction, in both work and life. To shift discordant  environments to ones of effective, interdependent collaboration.


To be hyper-focused on the mission. And, ultimately, be better than prepared to accomplish it!



A patented, published leadership development model founded on 60-plus years of leadership principles applied in the US Navy's nuclear submarine fleet coupled with over 13-years experience developing and leading small, high-performing teams in varied and dynamic environments as a United States Marine Raider.


Garret Harrell, President & Principal Consultant

Our interactive workshops and deliberate reinforcement drive genuine, meaningful change - in mindset first,

then behaviors.


Research-backed. Gimmick-free. Real World-tested.


After military service, I spent months worrying about where I fit role-wise into any number of companies.

I discovered I fit everywhere, but nowhere. So, instead of trying to mold myself into something I wasn't, I decided to make my own way. One that would allow me to help others. One that allowed me to pursue my “Why.”



To provide the map and compass so that others can chart their own course.
