"Advances in technology and infrastructure mean nothing if you don’t have the right people with the right transitional leadership skills to drive change in your business"
By Beena Sharma, Director, The Power Within Training UK
We are experiencing what is arguably the fastest and most challenging energy transition in history - is your business really equipped to manage, adapt and thrive during this time of change?
You may have the technology and infrastructure planning and implementation in place. But do your leaders, and your emerging leaders, have the skills they need to deliver for your business during this global transition?
So many leaders in the sector are lacking in one essential skill that would transform their ability to take advantage of the opportunities that this period of change will bring.
That skill is Motivational Intelligence (MQ) - the third level of intelligence along with Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and Emotional Intelligence (EQ).
Put simply, Motivational Intelligence is a person’s ability to identify and manage negative thoughts and self-limiting beliefs in order to overcome obstacles and accomplish goals.
The observable influence of MQ can be seen in five key areas: accountability, adaptability, resilience, initiative, and courage. Simply put, people with higher MQ levels make fewer excuses, adapt quicker, handle adversity more effectively, take productive action and embrace change better - like the kind of global change currently being experienced in the oil & gas and energy sectors.
The science behind Motivational Intelligence has won a Nobel Prize and been named as one of the top ten most promising scientific discoveries of the 20th century.
To thrive, businesses need to be able to evolve and respond to external change.
Our business is the only recognised consultant outside of North America with the ability to deliver registered training in Motivational Intelligence, and we have a team of directors who are experienced within the oil & gas and energy sectors.
Our programme, Leading with Motivational Intelligence, is the world’s first accredited Executive Diploma specifically designed to help progressive-minded leaders adapt to today’s dynamic business environment.
Focusing on the issues and challenges created by transition, disruption and turbulence, the course addresses topics ranging from leading/managing virtual teams to helping employees more readily orient to an ever-changing world.
The programme is:
Our business arm The Power Within Training UK - based in Aberdeen - is already helping business leaders in the oil & gas and energy sectors embrace change.
One Operations Manager from GE Oil & Gas, who took our Leading With Motivational Intelligence course, said: “I didn’t think I would be provided with so many lessons to better myself as a leader inside and outside of the workplace. Yet that is exactly what happened.”
Maybe you’re an individual looking to boost your skills to get back into work or progress your career. Or maybe you’re a business looking to up-level your leadership team and secure your succession planning by up-skilling your emerging leaders. Either way, we can help.
We have a range of programmes - some bespoke to the specific nature of the energy transition - and the businesses we work with benefit hugely in terms of preparedness for the future, delivering dynamic change, equipping their management teams with vital leadership skills and most importantly, building their business success.
Co-founder and Managing Director of The Power Within Training & Development Ltd, James Fleming said: “Over just a few decades, countries around the world are working to replace fossil fuels with zero-carbon energy from clean sources. This is something that we know businesses and their management teams will need extensive support in order to prepare and train leaders that are fit for the future……….and at The Power Within Training UK, we have the experience and expertise to successfully guide them through this journey.”
