The course enables middle to senior managers to focus on self-awareness and the impact of their behaviours on their staff or professional relationships. It explores leading in a defence operating environment and covers strategy, change, transition and resilience. It covers models and theories to motivate and lead staff in the implementation of organisational strategy. Therefore, applicants must meet the pre-requisite entry requirement and be able to provide work that reflects your ability to apply the knowledge gained in your own defence context.
This course is delivered through a blended approach of online learning through Defence Learning Environment (DLE) and virtual classroom delivery using web conferencing software. You will collaborate virtually in learning sets with other leaders. You will be assessed throughout by the facilitators and produce written assignments in a course journal, including consolidation action plans in essay format (to be submitted within 4 weeks of the virtual classroom event) to gain a Defence Academy Certificate and be eligible for accreditation. A significant level of preparation is required to complete the course, commencing 6 weeks before the virtual classroom delivery, which includes:
- a requirement to obtain 360 feedback from staff, colleagues, peers and managers through an online process
- a requirement to undergo a Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment which includes feedback from qualified MBTI practitioners
- online learning activities, including written work, to prepare for the virtual classroom delivery
Delegates who have not completed the preparation work will be removed from the course prior to the virtual face to face element.
Please note that the virtual classroom is hosted via web based learning platform and not currently available via MODNet.
