#70 Investing in Self: The Foundation of the Social Mastery Equation Unplugged – Live Conversation at the Indo Pacific Conference on Delivering a World-Class Leadership & Performance Wellbeing Program

This live interview at the Indo-Pacific Sea Power Conference in Sydney is with Rear Admiral Wendy Malcolm, Commander Dean Thompson and Staff Officer MAS Executive Sam Tickle – three Navy personnel who have been integral in sponsoring, amplifying and delivering the Social Mastery program, which has grown to encompass One Defence (Navy, Army, Air Force and Australian Public Sector).

We talk openly about the genesis of Social Mastery and why Social Mastery is so important. There are 4 areas within Social Mastery that have been adapted from Daniel Goleman’s Emotional Intelligence model, including Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness and Relationship Management. StriveStronger had the original opportunity to partner with Maritime Domain, and now One Defence, to add our IP and experience in delivering large-scale wellbeing and productivity programs,
