Threat Awareness Workshop

Everyday, deployed soldiers face the challenge of identifying threats from people that conceal their intent by blending in with the local population. HALO trainers are all former intelligence and special forces soldiers that have experienced this first hand.

Improve your ability to identify criminal or violent intent before it occurs using techniques developed by the military. Learn how to assess individuals and the surrounding environment to recognise early warning indicators of impending danger. Our Threat Awareness workshops are designed to develop informed awareness based on behavioural science. We will show you what to look for and how to look for it. Take the proactive approach to safety.

Evolution Strategy

The Evolution Strategy is a process that aligns training, education, and experience to prepare people, teams, and leaders for the challenges and complexity of today’s work environment.

The purpose of the Evolution Strategy is to enhance staff performance, to inspire higher standards and help people become a better version of themselves. The skills and experience gained will help participants at work, at home, and in life.

It involves continuous, deliberate, progressive and sequential molding of participants into confident and skilled team members and leaders who can take decisive actions and lead others efficiently.

The result – A productive team committed to high standards and quality performance, with a strong ability to perform tasks in a timely manner. A team that can work well under pressure and spends an appropriate amount of time on tasks. A team where every member has the ability to lead and is equally accountable for the success of the team. A fluid and flexible team that is able to adapt to changing conditions and perform above that of the status quo.

The Evolution Strategy is implemented over a three year period and is completely tailored to your requirements.

Lessons from the Front Workshop

Imagine what it would be like to lead a team through the most adverse of conditions – war. How do you influence people to move forward into battle when their natural instinct is to turn and run? We all face challenges in our lives and although the terrain is vastly different here at home, the lessons that I have learned throughout my career in the military are completely transferable to business, relationships and life in general. Throughout this workshop I will take the lessons learned from my battlefield and show you how to apply them to yours.

Mental toughness – Failing forward – Leading through adversity – Decision making under fire – Lose the ego
