Independent yacht crew leadership training and career development specialist, The Crew Coach, has announced that their superyacht-specific online leadership training for senior crew, has been awarded formal accreditation with the UK's Institute of Leadership & Management, part of the City & Guilds Group.
Learners who complete the full online training including all modules and coursework can now apply for an internationally recognised ILM Continuous Professional Development certificate, meaning their personal development has real value in the professional world beyond yachting. In addition to this, all learners receive free access to the ILM student resource library during their programme.
Alison Rentoul, founder of The Crew Coach said, "Apart from the positives of smoother operations and increasing overall crew morale and productivity, extending practical leadership skills reinforces a crew leader's reputation as a valuable and effective employee and helps protect their investment in their career to date.
"ILM certified training is known worldwide as a mark of quality and shows prospective and current employers your commitment to performing your role to the highest standards of professionalism and performance on board your yacht. Subscribing to our Leadership Advantage Training library is a sound investment in having a successful season with harmonious crew and happy guests."
According to The Crew Coach, their Leadership Advantage programme offers senior crew the opportunity to expand and refine their existing leadership skills and gain powerful new techniques, enabling them to make subtle changes with far-reaching effects.
Composed of four individual courses comprising the equivalent of four full days of live training in an online platform, the courses are broken up into short video training modules and each course contains a downloadable workbook.
Alison continued, “The curriculum builds on the core principles established in the new HELM leadership training and takes these even further, giving people broader learning with real life examples in an actual superyachting context. Where HELM teaches senior crew ‘what’ is important to know as a leader, this training shows people exactly ‘how’ to implement these concepts in a very practical way, with a core focus on getting real results.”
Access to The Crew Coach Leadership Advantage online training library is available on subscription, and learners can also choose to invest in additional implementation coaching with professional development expert, Alison Rentoul.
