Company Description

General Dynamics is a market leader in business aviation; combat vehicles, weapons systems and munitions; shipbuilding and marine systems; and mission-critical information systems and technology. The company was formed in 1952 through the combination of the Electric Boat Company, Consolidated Vultee (CONVAIR) and several others. The company grew organically and through acquisitions until the early 1990s, when they sold many of our defense-related businesses. Starting in the mid-1990s, they began expanding by acquiring combat vehicle-related businesses, additional shipyards, information-technology product and service companies and Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation.

The Energy Project energizes people and transforms companies, offering a detailed blueprint for fueling a fully engaged workforce. Drawing on the multidisciplinary science of high performance, we do this at three levels: We train people to perform sustainably at the highest levels by more skillfully managing their energy across four dimensions: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual to develop actionable strategies that help them to become more energized, focused and productive. We teach leaders to become Chief Energy Officers, who mobilize, inspire, focus, direct and regularly recharge the energy of those they lead. We partner with companies to help them better meet the core needs of their employees, so they’re freed, fueled and inspired to bring the best of themselves to work every day. Demand is exceeding our capacity. Time is the resource we’ve traditionally relied on to get more done. The problem with time is that it’s finite, and most of us no longer have additional hours left to invest at work. Energy, by contrast, can be expanded and regularly renewed. Drawing on the multidisciplinary science of high performance, The Energy Project has developed a set of simple principles and highly actionable practices for more effectively managing energy to drive higher levels of engagement, productivity, and innovation. Our clients range from companies such as Google, Coca Cola, Target, Sony, Ernst & Young, and Pfizer to organizations such as the Los Angeles Police Department, the Cleveland Clinic, Kipp Schools and many others.
