Does experience automatically give your senior officers and shore-based managers the necessary leadership skills?

That is most often not the case.

Even the most experienced leaders meet challenges in their leadership role and need good safety leadership tools to guide and support them.

Rate, measure, develop leadership performance

Management of leadership competencies should support the linking of corporate objectives with individual employee objectives.

It should provide a structured process of rating and measuring leadership performance. It is also a means that expectations need to be expressed clearly in terms of the performance to be delivered.

The 70 – (real work experience) 20 – (interacting with others) 10 – (formal training) model is the basis for everything. It’s how we prepare courses, on-the-job-training and look at competence development opportunities. Also, we propose how to integrate the competence evaluation output in practice into the recruitment and promotion processes.

On the last day of the leadership course, one of the participants rose up and proclaimed that this was the best course he had taken part in throughout his career – he was one of the participants with the longest experience at sea.

Equipping leaders with skills that result in higher performance

Leaders are in the front, setting the direction to achieve the company goals.

Therefore, they deserve to have the right skills to fulfill their obligation to guide, inspire and motivate their subordinates, work towards the company goals and go the extra mile to lift the company safety culture.

Our Safety Leadership courses introduce a new mindset: the goal is to enable the leader to create an open and trusting atmosphere, which also has a strong effect on overall safety behaviour.

Interaction and practice ensure effective learning

We have a focus on fewer lectures, and more interaction and practice drawn on personal experiences and real work challenges.

Teaching methods such as reflective and collaborative learning, small-group teambuilding experiences, engaging videos, large-group discussions, time for self-reflection, brainstorming and demonstration are all utilized in order to gain the best possible learning impact.
