A bulletproof organization is the ultimate in teamwork, performance and employee satisfaction.

Origin Story

The concept of the bulletproof team comes from three diverse disciplines:

top performing organizations, academic research, and SWAT!

It all started when a police sergeant was charged with developing a tactical team for serving high-risk search warrants, arresting dangerous felons, and rescuing hostages. His budget for personnel? Zero dollars. The amount of paid overtime for education and training? Zero dollars. The amount allotted for additional equipment? Zero dollars.

Was this even possible?

He would have to utilize officers who already had other, full-time assignments, ask them to volunteer their time and purchase their own equipment. Oh and by the way, they might be killed while performing their additional responsibilities.

Wow. How could that work?

But it did work. That team, the Rogers, Arkansas Special Tactics And Response Unit, became a world-class organization that, over two decades later, has never failed on a mission, and never lost an innocent life or suffered the death of a team member.

That team became literally bulletproof.

That sergeant, Tim D. Keck, worked his way up through the ranks to Chief of Police. Along the way he became a student of leadership and teamwork, studying successful organizations and perusing academic research on the topic.

After leaving law enforcement, he combined his knowledge and experience to develop a framework for how high-performing teams get stuff done when under lots of stress.

For the last decade GoBulletproof.com has helped organizations all over the world increase productivity, profitability, teamwork and employee well-being.

tenets of a bulletproof organization


Far more useful than a mission statement, this single sentence functions as the business definition. It concisely answers why and how we exist and keeps us focused amid the myriad stressors we face today. It is the single greatest determiner of clarity.


The unique way an organization accomplishes its unique purpose. The largest of all the tenets, it includes a simple strategy that is actionable at all levels as well as the resources necessary to carry out the plan.


Without great people, working toward a shared purpose, no organization can truly succeed. Primary factors here include involving the right people, fully engaged and doing what they do best every day, in a field they are passionate about.


The single most important tenet; it drives all the others. Bulletproof leaders are humble, self-aware and use their style and strengths to influence others to the greater good. Important components here include understanding and implementing the other five tenets to effect positive change.


The most difficult of all the principles to maintain and often dismissed as "touchy-feely," high quality relationships contribute the most to a high-performance, low-drama culture.


This tenet is almost a given when the other five are fully implemented. Getting results the right way is harder than worrying about office politics or just keeping the boss happy, but the payoff is success at a level not often witnessed by mere mortals.

Tim Keck gets my highest recommendation as a coach and mentor. His unique ability to recognize, understand, and explain the way every team member thinks and operates blows my mind. It turns out that there's so much about life and leadership that I didn’t know. Whether it’s personal coaching for just me or including my whole team — he provides a priceless amount of value. I name Tim as one of the top contributors to the success that I enjoy as a business professional today.
