Leadership Training for Teams Overseas: Building human assets

Overview

Sending teams overseas is not always easy. They may have been brought together very quickly and may not know each other as well as you would like. However, they will have a job to do and need to be led in the most effective way. Good leadership will be essential if the team is to survive and thrive when on an assignment. Whether the team’s role is business related or they have come together to aid others who are in need,  Planet Wise can help with pre-trip preparation, team awareness, stress testing, resilience training and real practical exercises in functioning overseas.

In Partnership with Tangram Training:

We run this course in partnership with Tangram Training that run courses in Leadership and Development for senior managements. In addition they work with groups to help develop high performing behaviours. Please find more information here.

 

Duration:

This course is designed around the needs of the organisation, the team traveling and the leadership function. It might be just a few hours where we help  facilitate best practices or  a full three-day rigorous scenario-based exercise where we  immerse the travellers in the reality of working together overseas.

 

A typical agenda: 

We encourage all modules to be competency based. We work with you to first understand your needs and then suggest suitable modules to maximise the outcomes of the course. By making modules competency based we make attendees aware that certain subjects are a must-have. Being strong in some areas cannot make up for deficiencies in other critical areas – such as site security.

Why Attend a Leadership Travel Safety Course?

Carrying out an assignment overseas is often stressful and carried out in challenging circumstances. Managing a team who are on a placement can be daunting, especially with the need to balance the outcomes of the work, the requirements of the team and the individual within it.

Most teams have people of different competency, temperament and tolerance thresh hold. Before embarking on a critical high stress mission, the individuals of the team must be tested to gauge their comfort level with each other and there is unfortunately little or no expert help in the market in this regard.

Planet Wise can step in to fulfill the demand and create high efficiency teams that get the job done.
