THE SEA AS AN ACCELERATOR OF YOUR MANAGERIAL SKILLSET

DA CREW is a coaching methodology based on “crew-at-sea” experiences, on a sailing ship, to learn or reinforce professional postures and make your teamwork astonishing.

“What you learn with your ears, you’ll forget
What you understand with your whole body and mind, you’ll remember forever”
-Master Gichin Funakoshi

THE SEA

The sea, as an opportunity space for challenges, inherently complex in an absence of certainty.
Sailing, and obvious metaphor of a goal to achieve, and of the grit needed to succeed while adapting to the complexity of your surroundings.
The boat, a protector, a vector, and a tool.
Yourself and your crew members, best allies to create and apply practical agility. You will be facing both your limits and the best version of yourself to dig further withing yourself and overcome.

you

You, a leader, manager or team member, master of your own kingdom. Within a workgroup of managers with a similar level of experience. Because you are not the best leader/team member you ever met. Because you’d like to know the stuff you’re made of. Because you’d like to know what you could achieve with your team. Because your current situation is uncomfortable. Because you feel you didn’t reach your full potential as a leader. Because you feel isolated in your current position. Because you want to be surprised by you or your team. Because you want to get a deeper understanding of yourself / your team. Because you feel now is the time.
To further complement the coaching of an individual or of a team, when starting a new position, for key phases of a project, or of a team.

us

Each of us realized sailing brought us our best life lessons. It went with an urge to share this realization.

training sessions

1 introductory day and 3 training sessions on a 2-3 day basis, within or across companies. Those training sessions are a mix of practical exercises at sea, on a sailing ship with a skipper, with one or two coach(es) that will debrief on the spot, or back onshore. You will understand your behaviors, and unlock keys for further success.

DA SAILOR

To optimize the efficiency of a team, enable its decision-making capability, and be fully enabled within a complex and uncertain professional universe.

Fully focused on the understanding of your inner gears, and of the mechanics of your team, this training will optimize the output of a team though and improved self-confidence, while pursuing the optimal desired efficiency. It will propose practical tools to evaluate your team and its communication dynamics. It will propose several alternatives and viable methods to foster agility when stepping out of the comfort zone.

DA CREW

For a team that can sail through chaos, trusting professional instinct and foresight.

This training comes exclusively after DA SAILOR. It will focus on keeping peak performance while submitted to stress and conflict. A deeper understanding of yourself and of the others, and qualitative interactions amongst team members will be mandatory to keep being fully on while tackling demanding projects.

DA CAPT’N

For leaders.

This training for leaders will push your limits (for 1 to 3 people). Those who will have completed the DA SAILOR training sessions will have the opportunity to confront their complexity or paradoxes: self-confidence, trust, cognitive biases, solitude, commitment, humility, and inner power. Two coaches will push you to your limits.
