The Benefits of Corporate Self Defence

Corporate self defence

Corporate Personal Safety & Self Defence Workshops

At Personal Safety London our staff and teams know from their own training that Self Defence and Personal Safety, if studied properly, is one of the most empowering and strategic subjects you can train in as a foundation for acquiring prevention capabilities, awareness, physical safety, response capabilities and for building physical, emotional and mental resilience and wellbeing. Why?

Personal Safety and Security are basic human needs. As with all human needs, we need to acquire the capabilities of getting those needs met. This means taking the time and self-care to train, learn, become educated, up-skill and apply the associated human behaviours which bring about those needs being met.

Human needs are met by acquiring the necessary associated skills and capabilities, and applying those acquired tools to life via daily behaviours.

Interestingly in the matrix of human needs, Safety and Security is often the one category which people leave to someone else to provide for them. This outsourcing (or subconscious removal from the self-responsibility framework) raises fundamental issues for the individual which often present as a lack of confidence through to regular and often daily experience of fear; something we see a lot of within corporate workforces travelling to and from work, whether that be in the UK or abroad. Living with fear (at any level) is a debilitator; it undermines wellbeing, confidence and performance.

By removing fear on a day to day basis, we enable individuals to flourish.

By equipping ourselves in personal safety and security skills and knowledge we benefit directly in that category of needs, and further positively benefit in other areas of life too.

Corporate Staff Training: Learning and Up-skilling

Our Personal Safety Talks and Corporate Self Defence Workshops are expertly built to deliver the most empowering and skills-based teaching possible in the time we have with our corporate clients.

Corporate Training in general, by nature, exists of small windows of opportunity to pull full workforces together and away from their desks, so over 15 years of delivering Corporate Education in Learning & Development we've built teaching solutions which work for staff and for the economy of the company employing them.

Effective, concise and enormously inspiring, these learning deliveries enable staff to instantly acquire the tools and core skills we use in our own work in private international security and in our UK ground operations.
