Wellbeing, communication skills, resilience and personal safety techniques.

Have you felt yourself feeling more negative and emotional than usual, perhaps even feeling like you’re on your way to burnout? You may also be finding yourself in more emotionally driven conversations at work and home. In the current stressful climate, we are finding ourselves angrier and sadder than ever before. We pride ourselves in being leaders of positive change and solving these problems for both individuals and corporate organisations – we are here to help.

WARN International specialises in mental health (we prefer to use the term mind health), personal resilience, communication and personal safety through online courses, keynote presentations and in person workshops. We inspire, motivate and encourage staff to look after both themselves and each other; improving the culture of your organisation and building personal resilience in individuals. We reduce risks to staff from both criminal and civil emergencies and provide practical tips to reduce situations. At the far end of the spectrum, we have programmes that allow you to engage with people who threaten suicide or choose violence to solve their problems. Resolve conflict, respond to emergencies and learn how control negative thoughts and emotions.

Our face to face presentations are tailored to your exact requirements with most delivered in just two hours. If you are having trouble getting all of your team in the same place at the same time, our online courses are a fantastic training option.

Lance, our founder and trainer, is an has worked with elite international tactical units across police, the military, emergency services, prisons and the FBI.
