Thom Shea

Author and Executive Mentor

(Ret.) Senior Chief Thom Shea is the CEO of Adamantine Alliance, a unique leadership and demanding human performance training organization. Thom works exclusively with “one person at a time” throughout the nation, to ensure transformative performance results.

Adamantine Alliance is a unique corporate and human performance-based leadership organization. In the global market place and in the intimacy of our homes, we are all interested in results. At the core of any results-based plan is the individual. Adamantine Alliance focuses on unraveling and clarifying the center of all human performance. The first critical component of performance says internal dialogue precedes our actions. The second vital aspect is that all human beings look to master the Five Pyramids of Human Performance: Physical Mastery, Wealth Mastery, Intellectual Mastery, Spiritual Mastery and Relationship Mastery.

Adamantine Alliance teaches individuals, companies and organizations how to breakthrough to greater levels of mastery. Learn what it is to take bold action in the face of adversity. Learn to thrive in the marginal spaces where mastery truly exists. In our work with internal dialogue, you will become clear on the power and effect that your own internal dialogue has on every aspect of your life and your results. With our work in mastering the Five Pyramids of Human Performance you will gain immediate access to the actions needed to move and engage and to thrive in all situations.

Thom has trained hundreds of individuals to date to master the Five Pyramids of Human Performance® and led each through the intense training of Performance in the Margin®, the space where all performance occurs.

Before founding Adamantine Alliance, Thom served 23 years with distinguished Valor as a Navy SEAL. During his military career he served in three wars, ultimately leading a team of Navy SEALs into Afghanistan in 2009 where he earned a Silver Star, Bronze Star with Valor, Army Commendation with Valor and his second Combat Action Medal. He was hand-selected to serve as Officer In Charge of the famed SEAL Sniper course from 2009 – 2011.
