Delivering online maritime leadership training

Spinnaker is continuing to deliver our Maritime Leadership Development Programme virtually in 2021. After adapting to demand during the COVID-19 pandemic we’re using our online leadership training to help keep employees engaged who are still working remotely.

Effective leadership

According to our research only one-fifth of maritime industry employees believe their employers develop their people well or promote those with the best management aptitude.

Effective leadership creates a positive impact on team members – performance, productivity, behaviour and morale.

Personality profiling

For managers of today and leaders of the future, our maritime leadership training incorporates the personality profiling tool Facet5.

We use Facet5 because it is a ‘trait-based’ profile, in preference to type-based profiles such as Myers Briggs, which categorise people as one type or another. 

Before the virtual workshop maritime leadership sessions, each attendee completes their Facet5 personality profile and receives feedback via video call. The one to one coaching that follows the workshops not only helps to embed changes at an individual level but provides a confidential overview for the CEO of any challenges.

The programme came at the right time for me, transitioning from sea to shore, expanding to a different world where I am not constrained by the limits of the ship.” – previous programme attendee

Adapting to online

Delivered globally as online maritime leadership training for individuals or small group attendance, it is also available for exclusive, in-house delivery. We are also able to deliver this virtually if you are continuing to work remotely.

Our next open programme, launching in December, can be booked by contacting Helen McCaughran at or call +44 (0)1702 481643.
