Leadership Management For Oil and Gas Executives

Course Description

The turmoil, volatility, uncertainty and risks in the oil and gas industry continue to escalate and it is becoming extremely difficult to model the above parameters and make good decisions based on a reasonable amount of certainty.

But good decision making and success is not purely based on risk modelling of uncertainty analysis. What separate leading successful oil and gas companies from other less successful oil and gas companies is the human element, human capital and more specifically, leadership and management skills. If you look at leading successful international companies, they all have one thing in common – advanced, highly effective and humane leadership and management skills.

No matter how good your tools are, if you are not able to pull your team together with you and motivate them to attain greater achievements, at a time when risks and challenges increase, you and your company will lose out.

Your human resources are both the engine oil and blood circulation in your organisation that make it work and breathe. If your engine oil or blood does not function well, your engine and your body would function poorly.

Effective leadership and competent management skills are the essential ingredients to ensure that your company’s operation at all levels runs well with efficiency, quality and productivity. Your decision making and outcomes will improve and could make the difference between loss and profit, between staying in business or going out of business.
