(Washington DC) Training Services On Demand (TSOD: www.tsod.com) recently fulfilled contracts with both the administrative staff of Naval Special Warfare Group TWO and leaders of the Army Garrison Walter Reed, according to Marcia George, TSOD’s customer service director.
The administrative staff of the U.S. Navy’s Special Warfare Group TWO, based in Norfolk, Virginia, supports SEAL and SDV teams in the Atlantic, Europe, and Southern Command areas of responsibility. Special Warfare teams serve in diverse roles, including unconventional warfare, terrorism deterrence, special reconnaissance, foreign internal defense, information warfare, security assistance, counter-drug operations, personnel recovery, and hydrographic reconnaissance.
The U.S. Army Garrison Walter Reed Army Medical Center, in Washington, DC, is responsible for maintaining the post as a safe, secure, and quality working, training, and healthcare environment. The Walter Reed Health Care System itself provides comprehensive healthcare for more than 150,000 soldiers, other service members, family members, and retirees in the National Capital Area.
“In a single, very engaging week, we had the opportunity to work with the Navy professionals who support some of America’s most awe-inspiring warriors, and the leaders who are working tirelessly to restore the good name of the Army’s most renowned medical campus in its final years of operation,” said Frank Whyte, TSOD’s chief instructor and the facilitator for both programs. “In both cases, we interacted with impressive individuals seeking to further refine their communication, collaboration, and conflict resolution skills.”
“We find it essential first and foremost that team members be able to relate to one another, idiosyncrasies and all,” Whyte said. “From there, we add modules on conflict management, team communication, stress management, or other workshop elements tailored to meet the team’s needs and goals.”
