Leadership development programmes

Leadership development in maritime

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.

For managers of today and leaders of the future, the Maritime Leadership Development Programme is provided by Spinnaker and t-three and incorporates the personality profiling tool Facet5.

Core focus

  • Build and improve leadership and management capabilities
  • Identify and grow talent for future leadership positions
  • Energise and engage employees
  • Develop high performing teams

Delivered globally as an open programme for individuals or small group attendance, it is also available for exclusive, in-house delivery. During these extraordinary times, we are also able to deliver this virtually if you are working from home.

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.”

The programme includes continuous improvement and change management methodologies, and uses coaching and facilitation techniques to draw out ideas. Before the workshops, each attendee completes a 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.

Our programme focuses on participants gaining self-awareness – recognising the benefits and risks of personality style, identifying leadership strengths and challenges, understanding how to mitigate risk, learning how to motivate and get the best from people.

It’s great to talk to someone not connected with daily work.  The whole experience has been amazing.”

The aim of our approach is long-term consistent behaviour. In developing managers of today and leaders of the future, we start by helping them to deepen their levels of self-awareness in the moment and help them to uncover what is happening at that moment which is blocking their progress.

The outcome of this process is more sustained development for participants. It ensures that each individual focuses on their own specific and complex development areas in a way which drills into the underlying cause rather than talking about superficial symptoms.
