Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

Working in project teams is not a new thing, we do it all the time, yet we fail to deliver the best possible project results that we could.    What could be the reason for this?    Mainly, it’s because, as project Engineers, we are “do-ers”, we like to work things out ourselves, we like to achieve that sense of self-satisfaction at solving the problem and making something work.   Our “people skills” can be our most challenging competencies for both team members and experienced leaders. This course will challenge you to understand the team set-up on a deeper level, as well as helping delegates to reflect and improve on leadership skills.

This workshop will take time to identify and consider many of the key techniques that we currently use – and we don’t have to remove them, but we can certainly improve them.    The facilitator will take the participants through small steps which will deliver major changes to the ways that project teams work and support one another.

In addition to the numerous activities and exercises throughout the training where participants get to practice the different tools and techniques learned, they will also apply the learning and their team building skills on an interesting case study that will take them back to the days of Ancient Egypt and building the great pyramids through project and team behaviours and methodologies.

This PetroKnowledge online training course will highlight:

  • The structure that is required to create a high-performing project team.
  • The need for high-level and open communication
  • Identifying the attitude, skills and knowledge of the perfect project team member and recognising how to use that to the benefit of the team
  • Recognition that all project team members play a part, and all are important.
  • Recognising that not everyone can be your equal, but neither are others – learning from each other and supporting each other is crucial.
