Experiential education

Experiential education

Our courses can last from 2 to 5 days. They are aimed at leaders, executives, middle managers and students.

Our goal ? SCYFCO was created to share the expertise of former officers who have commanded in military operations and now work in the private sector. This expertise is transferable, including resilience, agility, decision making and situational intelligence. 

We believe that people learn best by doing and experiencing things for themselves. For this reason we build real-life situations that require a cool head, decision-making, analysis, coordination and personality.

The France Défense Développement team also proposes :

  • Encouraging employees' interest in the defence community and raising awareness of their roles and how important these are to French sovereignty.
  • Developing knowledge specific to the different operational specialities of the armed forces.
  • Promoting and strengthening relationships based on trust and confidence between men and women in the business and defence sectors.

A personal and collective commitment

We place people in atypical situations, taking them out of their comfort zones to help develop a team spirit and mutual trust. Each situation will be the subject of an individual and collective debriefing, encouraging learning and the development of skills.
