New Leader Integration Training: Accelerate Team Cohesion and Effectiveness

Integrating a new leader into an existing team can be a pivotal moment for any organization. Our new leader integration training program is designed to accelerate team cohesion, build trust, and enhance overall team effectiveness. Through structured introductions, ability to ask questions beyond the CV, sharing of expectations, and knowledge transfer, we help new leaders and their teams quickly align and thrive together.

Why Choose Our Leadership Development Program?

Our comprehensive new leader integration program focuses on essential elements that foster a strong team dynamic. Participants will engage in introductions that go beyond the surface, exploring personal and professional backgrounds to build deeper connections. Through targeted questions beyond the CV, team members gain insights into each other's strengths, experiences, and motivations.

Sharing Expectations and Knowledge Transfer

A key component of our training is the sharing of expectations. This process ensures that both the new leader and the team are aligned on goals, responsibilities, and performance standards. Additionally, our program includes knowledge transfer sessions where critical historical context and organizational insights are shared, providing the new leader with a solid foundation to build upon.

Building Trust and Team Effectiveness

Building trust is at the core of our new leader integration training. Through various team-building exercises and open communication forums, we create an environment where trust can flourish. This foundation of trust is crucial for achieving high levels of team effectiveness and driving organizational success.

No sailing skills required. You need to be mentally and physically fit for sailing. Trainees are part of the crew and will be required to engage in navigating the boat.

Onboard safety training will be provided; safety on board is paramount!

There are ways to individualize your training. Whatever difficulty level you choose, the goal is to enhance your training experience to the optimal level. There is no right or wrong; the aim is to find the right balance between challenge and comfort:

1) Leave and/or sail during night-hours:

Darkness, tired-ness, uncertainty, all these are stressors that make sailing at night a challenging experience. If the weather and overall conditions allow, you can ask us to plan for at least one leg during night hours. The boat is equipped with automated identification system (AIS), radar and red light headlamps.

2) Phones and digital devices away:

Sailing on the open water is an experience by itself. Reaching a destination is important and how you get there is part of the overall experience. Reflection, exchange, discussion reach a different level if you truly disconnect from land, from routine, from social contacts that you are used to see and hear almost every day. You can choose to put away your digital devices for a limited period of time, or, during the entire sailing trip. 

3) Cooking on board:

You can choose whether you would like to go out and enjoy hospitality on land as a group, or, do your own cooking on board. We do have recipes available that can be used to create delicious meals. There is a gimbled gas-oven and also a three cocker stove ready to use. Shopping and preparation can be part of your team experience. 

4) Timing of your event throughout the year: 

Weather conditions will always vary; however, the likelihood of strong or light winds, rain or sunshine, and warmth or cold is heavily dependent on the season. You may choose to schedule your leadership training experience from March until the end of November.
