The Wellsite Coach
In the oil and gas industry, the ability for a manager to get the best out of their team in terms of performance and at the same time contributing to growth and development is a key success factor. Using a wellsite coaching methodology is becoming a more widespread tool to help managers achieve this.
However, building a real coaching culture means that managers will need to re-examine some of the limiting beliefs and focus on key skills and reflexes. Not all situations that a manager will be confronted with demand a coaching approach, other interactions may yield better results. More and more in today’s fast paced environment, the role of managers and leaders is to combine three separate roles: expert in their domain, manager to manage people and processes, and coach to help others unlock their potential and contribute to the success of the team. Traditionally in the oil and gas sector the emphasis has been solely on the first two and very little devoted to coaching.
This course will help managers become more knowledgeable in the wellsite coaching technique and will help them recognize the situations in which this technique would encourage the best results from their team.
