RAF Akrotiri Station Training Flight resumed training in June with the introduction of the new Human Performance course, designed to help individuals with mental resilience.
The team have re-started delivering developmental courses to the community following the ease of restrictions after the Coronavirus pandemic. Three weeks of training started on the 1st June. This included the re-introduction of the Defence Workplace Trainer, Coaching & Mentoring, and introduced the new Human Performance course.
Station Training Officer, Flight Lieutenant Meg Robins, has written and delivered the Human Performance course in partnership with RAF Cosford who developed the original training. She said, “The five-day Human Performance course is designed to assist you in realising your immense potential. The course focuses on creating a ‘mindset’ that will enable you to achieve more, solve problems with minimal fuss and communicate far more effectively, as well as master your own emotions so that you can handle all eventualities easily and enhance your personal relationships.”
The team also resumed the popular Coaching and Mentoring course, designed to support line managers and personnel alike in developing the ability to get alongside other members of the team in order to support their professional development. “The aim of the course,” says Meg, “is to help our people become effective coaches in the workplace by building on interpersonal skills such as listening and rapport building.”
Both courses tackle the issues of conflict resolution and stress management.
