ARCO Marine’s successful team building

Goal: Achieve highest possible operational integrity through teamwork with the objective of zero accidents, spills, and injuries, due to many accidents with quasi-military organizational structure, autocratic control, ”code of silence”, roles based on function & rank, and minimal cooperation.

Process: Multi-year cascading implementation with oil vessel crews, including on-board team-building with Decision style & 360° assessment & feedforward for greater awareness of self & others to improve cooperation, division of work, and communication, including broader & quicker vigilance.

Results: More adaptive (even) role style profiles, better overall team 360°-evaluations of task & relationship-related behaviors (eg, problem-solving, control, and leading). 70+% decrease in fleet safety & reliability incident index over 6 years!

Tools: StyleView™, 360View
