The highly competitive and ever changing nature of business today has lead to far greater demands being placed on Managers and employees alike. Leading companies throughout the world are recognizing that investment in staff training is vital to maintain momentum and keep competitive edge. Traditional training programs conducted in a conference room environment are suitable only for teaching specific skills and procedures but are ineffective when trying to convey issues that will carry your team into the next decade. Managing change, transformational leadership, team relationships and communication are all ideas that are best experienced rather than drawn on a white board.
Eos’ individually tailored programs can combine both time in the conference room and the opportunity to put theory into practice using sailing as the medium.
Previous sailing experience is not important as the equalizing effect of the sailing allows a new relationship to develop in your team, as together they respond and adapt to this challenge. At the heart of our program is the format of a series of short races. Each team is provided with a luxury Bavaria or Catalina yacht and one of our specially trained skippers. During a short practice session, each team is instructed to an equal level. Racing these yachts in close competition will be new to everyone, but those that take up the challenge and work together will find themselves leading the fleet, developing a new understanding of team dynamics as they swap roles after each race. One race you may be the Skipper drawing information from your team, making decisions under pressure and providing leadership. The very next race, you may well be the grinder, following orders and supplying the horsepower for your team. As each team responds to the challenge they immediately have a tangible benchmark for their performance as they compare themselves with the other teams around them.
The programs end with a full debrief highlighting the learning experienced by individuals and how they can take it back into an action plan for the workplace. Your team will take a new ownership in the success of your business through a better understanding of their place in the team. Your corporate development package can be totally tailored to suit your company structure, working with your own in-house personnel, or we can provide our own specialist facilitator experienced in both corporate and sailing fields. We have packages that will form the basis of the program, we are then only limited by our imagination.
