Leadership On The High Seas
Nigel Stoke, alias 'Skipper', reflects on his 2016 Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race experience. After 2 days of exhilarating high speed ocean racing, things took a turn for the worse. As Nigel says "when things go wrong, they always go wrong when it's pitch black in the middle of the night and to make matters worse they were in 25 knot winds in Bass Strait!".
Fortunately Nigel's 20 years of leadership experience equipped him to make that all important split second judgement call - knowing the difference between the urgent and the important. The foundation of any high performing team is trust and as Nigel recounts they pulled off, what other crews would have thought impossible!
“We need to talk about it” constantly discussing how things are going and that we are running a business...values must be aligned to succeed. Great advice John
