We have worked across the MOD for the past 15 years. Our relationship has equipped us with extensive knowledge and experience of the challenges, dynamics and differences between the different organisations and agencies. With both the civilian and uniformed services we have worked to reinforce and underpin behaviours, practices and language that support policies and values, including health and safety, diversity and inclusion and leadership.
A brigade-wide scenario-based diversity and inclusion training programme, highlighting the line between acceptable and unacceptable behaviours, and exploring the link between equality and diversity and operational effectiveness.
Equality and inclusion are fundamental to the success of any organisation that relies on teamwork. An interactive DVD provided exercises accessible to all military personnel, covering leadership styles, bystander responsibility, managing banter and unconscious bias.
Training solutions researched and devised with the RAF have included drama-based programmes on mediation (in collaboration with ACAS), and the implications of diversity and inclusion on operational effectiveness.
“The sessions were more meaningful than generic training courses because of the in depth research… the overwhelming feedback was that the sessions had a potent impact.” Andy Boylan, DBS Engagement Manager
NEW 'OPPORTUNITY NOW' REPORT
A new report on Inclusive Leadership:culture change for business success produced by Opportunity Now and Shapiro Consulting, explores how five pioneering organisations, including the British Army, have helped form a five point framework to develop and embed inclusive leadership. Case studies highlight how the Army went about embedding diversity and inclusion into their existing leadership framework. The Garnett Foundation has been responsible for designing and delivering these elements into core leadership programmes, including for new recruits. The report also highlighted a training DVD we produced on Challenging Behaviours with the aim of developing behaviours and actions that characterise great inclusive leaders.
It was by far the best training I have seen on the subject in my 25 years in the Army
