2010 Manila amendments: Leadership and teamworking skills are mandatory for nautical and technical officers
16 December 2013 - 19:51

According to the 2010 Manila amendments to the STCW Convention nautical and technical officers are now obliged to raise their level of competence regarding Leadership and Teamworking. The new competencies are part of the requirements for nautical and technical officers and will be included as part of the nautical and ship operational apprenticeships in seafarer schools. 
Since 1 July all training institutes have been implementing the Manila amendments in their programme. 
Nautical and technical officers have to demonstrate competence in leadership and teamworking skills. In Table A-II/1 of the STCW convention these are described as: 
•    Working knowledge of shipboard personnel management and training
•    A knowledge of related international maritime conventions and recommendations, and national legislation
•    Ability to apply task and workload management, including: 
o    planning and co-ordination
o    personnel assignment
o    time and resource constraints
o    priorization
Competence in “Leadership and Teamskills” has to be proven by 2nd and 3rd nautical officers as well as 3rd technical officers. Chief engineers, 2nd engineers, chief mates and masters have to give evidence of “Leadership and Management Skills”. 
Recognising the importance of ensuring that seafarers are properly trained GL Academy is now offering three courses covering these topics, always focussing on the maritime environment. 
  
Efficient Communication in a Maritime Environment 
Confident and clear interaction plays a vital role in success, especially in a time and risk sensitive working environment such as the maritime business. The need for precise, effective communication and the prevention of misunderstandings is very high. 
This seminar goes far beyond the general rules of communication and enables the participant to present information and express emotions precisely and confidently, putting them in a position to be in active control of the communication process. 
  
After their active participation in this seminar participants will: 
•    save time and effort by communicating more precisely
•    have a structure for everyday communication situations
•    be able to influence their communication positively to reach their goals
•    generate and foster trust and rapport with people they work with remotely
•    avoid misunderstandings and misinterpretations
Effective Leadership in a Maritime Environment 
The scope of leadership in a maritime environment is very broad. From running an administrative unit ashore to commanding a vessel, our industry has it all. However, apart from our administrative or technical business education very few of us have ever received any formal leadership training, even though a considerable part of our own, and our company’s success, is directly related to just that - effective leadership. 
In this seminar participants will work through the full scope of leadership situations. They will optimize their very own leadership style and review the methods that can bring about effective leadership. 
After their active participation in this seminar participants will: 
•    have worked through the mechanism and demands of simple up to complex leadership
•    be familiar with the needs and benefits of quality leadership
•    be able to adjust their leadership style to every situation
•    understand how to generate enthusiasm and trust through their leadership
Effective Teams in a Maritime Environment 
Teamwork helps people to achieve their objectives more quickly and if a team is effective, it is also successful. However, these advantages can only be gained if the team follows certain rules and works from a common basis. To achieve an effective working group it must be very carefully constructed. Balancing everyone’s needs and setting up good communication processes requires a real understanding of the teamwork mechanism. 
  
Combining and getting the most out of every team members’ skills is vital in the highly specialized maritime business and the potential gains can make quite a difference to any organisation. 
  
After their active participation in this seminar participants will: 
•    have a broad understanding of teamwork in different environments
•    have worked through the mechanism and demands of an effective team
•    be aware of the possibilities a good team can offer
•    be able to adjust their leadership style to leading a team
•    understand how to generate enthusiasm and trust through their leadership of the team
•    be familiar with the communication style of an effective team
