Marine Mindset is a curriculum that employs the use of performance psychology, evidence-based Cognitive Behavioral theory, and the time-tested wisdom of seasoned Marines in order to improve warfighter performance, cultivate character development, teach resiliency techniques, promote unit cohesion, and develop small unit leadership.  Marine Mindset builds mentally tough warfighters who thrive in harsh environments and exemplify the title of U.S. Marine.
