We energise, utilise and extend entrepreneurial team skills. But more importantly, capitalise on the way things used to be when getting the job done meant using the simple techniques, which are still important in this modern world.
Tall Ships are complex, requiring a full compliment of crew to sail them around the clock, it would not surprise you, that the skills needed to do this are the same as those needed to ensure an organisation works effectively. Working aloft sets new standards in leadership, team working and communication, making this programme varied, challenging, exciting and demanding.
Everybody is a new starter on these ships, a truly status free environment for everybody. On a Tall Ship just like a business there are no passengers, only stakeholders.
Team Development Training
Who is Navigator for?
Navigator is for teams at all levels, the environment is status free and a great level playing field where all experience is valuable. It is ideally suited to teams from the same business, who can work together to develop their thinking and options for their workplace challenges.
The ship is a self-contained business community, the running of the ship is in fact a parallel to running a business but more concentrated and demanding. When you are aboard a Tall Ship, all your senses are alive, it is thrilling, your ability to learn is unbelievable, you just know this memory will last forever.
The sailing challenge
Formal training and practical study in seamanship / navigation takes place, and on completion you will take control of the vessel. Everyone is assigned to one of four watches, and all watch member will take part in all duties required to run the ship.
The workplace challenge
To develop and implement the team working skills needed back in the workplace, shipmates keep a development log and produce an action plan for implementation upon return to work. Throughout the voyage development coaches will be briefing / de-briefing and running performance reviews.
The whole venture is centred on the question of “how will you apply what you have learned on your return to work?“
Type of Programme
A very hands on experience from the moment you step on board. A true blended learning environment where everyone steps out of the comfort zone directly into the learning zone.
Duration and delivery schedule
