I would like to formally express the gratitude of the Royal Naval Leadership Academy and the Britannia Royal Naval College for your support to our inaugural Leadership Speaker Series event. Your sessions around the Chimp Paradox Model certainly made an impact and will serve to promote further discussion and debate around this area.
The initial feedback from this event has been very positive across all ranks and rates that attended. As Captain Naval Service Leadership, I was particularly interested in your segment on how we should challenge our thoughts on leadership and how we are predisposed to think differently around others.
With the requirement of our personnel to operate in challenging, dangerous and highly stressful circumstances, the mind management tools discussed will assist with providing the marginal gains necessary to support the evolution of our leaders and help them meet the very specific demands of the Service.
