“DSEME are on a journey and this training experience provided the staff an opportunity to view, review and discuss/debate ‘inclusive leadership and respect for others’ across the Whole Force, question themselves and the organisation. You know the training has had a positive impact when the staff are still talking about the training opportunity a week later! MOD Lyneham is a challenging site, C3000 personnel staff and trainees and therefore Whole Force training is absolutely vital. The training opportunity has been outstanding – focused, professional, thought provoking, education and just what we required, thank you and my experience in dealing with The Garnett Foundation throughout was very positive.
Lieutenant Colonel Gary Connolly, Chief of Staff
We worked together with the Defence School of Electronic and Mechanical Engineering (DSEME) who are part of the Defence College of Technical Training (DCTT) to provide a platform bringing together military personnel, civil servants, and contractors. They intended to explore the similarities and differences between their working practices and the importance of a shared culture that enables them to work collaboratively and productively.
How we did it:
We worked closely with DSEME to create a tailored, highly interactive programme around the Army’s Respect for Others value.
We delivered bespoke, whole force diversity and inclusion training, entitled ‘Together We Can’. The sessions challenged perceptions, assumptions and acceptable behaviours. As well as their collective and individual responsibility to create an inclusive and respectful culture regardless of rank. They were run concurrently with leadership sessions and over 400 permanent staff attended the programme.
