Business and Education

Frontline Mind identified an opportunity early to partner with the University of Melbourne to deliver a people skills course to chemical engineer students; not traditionally the strong suite of science-minded people.  

Resilience and leading skills are important for people in any organisation, no matter if the work may be considered ‘frontline’ or not.

We have also worked with other organisations like Analytical Services Tasmania and the Tasmanian Government Environmental Health Unit in this space, as well as utility companies that do perform an essential, frontline role like TasWater.

Showcase

Collaboration with University of Tasmania

In 2019, Frontline Mind was introduced to the team at University College at the University of Tasmania with a view to sharing experiences in digital-led education. We found that we had well-aligned values and our content added deep value in a number of areas in a newly developed Associate Degree in Applied Health and Community Support.

How We Do It

Over the course of 12 months, we adapted and customised our content and workshop designs so that UTas staff could host the experiential learning themselves. Several key units across the degree are now led by Frontline Mind content, specifically on leading, communicating, planning for the (unknown) future, and decision making in complex situations.

What our clients says about the program

“I can see that the content from Frontline Mind will be helpful in my professional role and hopefully moving forwards into a management position. By adopting these techniques I can become a better leader and keep my balance in stressful situations and calm my mind to make more informed decisions looking from all perspectives.”
