New professional crew coaching workshop launched
Friday, 1 October 2010
Alison Rentoul, The Crew Coach, has launched a new two day workshop for yacht crew, designed to maximize the personal and professional potential of individual crew, while reinforcing their roles and objectives in giving yacht owners, captains and managers what they really want: Great service and smooth operations.
With the additional benefits of enhancing crew cohesion and motivation, this whole crew workshop also incorporates separate sections for the senior crew to learn important people management skills, giving them essential tools and techniques to really get the most out of their teams.
Over the course of two days and using the latest innovations in highly interactive training techniques, The “Crew Coaching Workshop” takes crew on a fun and educational journey, giving them a deeper understanding of the operation of the yacht, how they fit into the team around them and how a professional yachting career will aid them in achieving their own personal objectives.
In an industry where ever-increasing yacht sizes mean larger crew teams, an emerging problem is that the longevity of crew is on the decline and we are therefore seeing a growing shortage of mid level experienced crew. This means the issues of good people management and professional development for yacht crew are becoming a high priority, if we are to encourage crew to stay in the industry and advance in seniority over the years.
This new workshop is aimed at providing the final piece to the much welcomed professionalisation of an industry that has seen incredible growth in the last 10 years. By making yachting a satisfying and rewarding longer term career choice for many, this will help save owners money through lower crew turnover and training costs, improve service levels through greater consistency, increase revenue potential through greater care of the vessel and improved yacht reputation, and help reduce the shortage of mid-level experienced crew.
Combined with her personal one-to-one professional career and life coaching for yacht crew, Alison Rentoul is on a mission to bring greater awareness of the benefits of personal development to an industry populated with highly intelligent and capable people. Ultimately everyone benefits when the industry recognises and respects the individual development potential of the workforce that provides the high quality service the industry is built on.
Based in the South of France and with more than 12 years of yachting industry experience, Alison Rentoul The Crew Coach is ideally placed to work with crew of all sizes and with a wide range of operating objectives.
