About this course

This is an evidence-based 1-day workshop designed for defence senior leaders tasked with creating a positive environment in which a mentally fit, resilient and productive workforce can thrive.

Drawing on the PERMA model of positive psychology, concepts are explored through a combination of self-reflection and peer engagement. The workshop aims to promote greater understanding of the importance of mental fitness and resilience for leaders themselves, and of role-modelling and embedding conducive conditions in their organisations.

Please note that the Leading Diverse and Inclusive Organisations (LDIO) Workshop, mandatory every 3 years for OF6-OF9 military officers and senior civil servants, is also available for booking and complements the SLMFR learning experience. SLMFR applicants are asked to note the following points:

  • access to the Defence Learning Environment (DLE) is a fundamental requirement
  • the online platform used is MS Teams and can be accessed via MODNet devices
  • Pre-workshop study on the DLE (max 2 hrs) is essential as it contributes to the workshop
