Exercise Deep Heat

April 14, 2023

Teams of civilians from across Scotland took part in Exercise Deep Heat, a military-styled exercise that provided participants with leadership and team-building challenges.

The event – held from March 6-8 – was run by 154 (Scottish) Regiment Royal Logistics Corps at its 221 Transport Squadron in Glasgow. 154 is an Army Reserve Regiment.

Among those taking part was a team from Falkirk Football Community Foundation. The Foundation is an HRFCA-area Armed Forces Covenant signatory and Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Bronze Award holder.

Designed for those wanting to develop their leadership and management skills, Deep Heat gave its participants insight into and training in military leadership.

Participants were put through their paces by military instructors. As well as a presentation on the theory of military leadership, participants took part in a selection of tasks. All of the tasks were designed to help both the individual, and the team, to think more strategically, ethically, and confidently.

All of those taking part finished the Exercise with a deeper understanding of what it means to lead successfully, in both a personal and professional capacity. All of the teams enjoyed the opportunity to bond and grow, gaining a better understanding of the group members and dynamic; as well as a deeper understanding of Army training.
