About the workshop

The Defence Force, Emergency Services and Enforcement agencies are the cornerstone of a functional society, ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of the communities they serve. The high pressure and ever-changing nature of this work requires a unique blend of reactive and proactive leadership skills and an awareness of not only how to deal with a situation, but to ensure the safety and wellbeing of your team.

Leadership advancement requires an understanding of how to navigate this traditionally male dominated profession. By understanding how these organisations have established and the behavioural norms that represent them, leaders will become aware of the unconscious biases that often impact the decisions and choices made, that can help or hinder career advancement.

This two day workshop explores resilience, stress and confidence as weapons in the leadership arsenal, and will give you the ability to apply them to their own behaviours and work.
