HOD Coaching


One-on-one Coaching services for Heads of Departments exclusively with Karine. Your coaching sessions are done online making us globally accessible.

“My goal from personal mentoring was to discover positive ways to motivate crew in a challenging period of operation. The sessions I had with Karine prompted a positive outcome, enhanced my confidence as a leader, and as a result was the start of a brighter future for the crew and subsequently the yacht operation. As a captain, challenges are certainly not limited to technical challenges. Our crew are our biggest asset, and sometimes the help of a professional with expansive experience in this area can provide vital support in helping us on our way to developing our crew into a harmonic, high performing team. I cannot recommend the cooperation between leaders and a ‘mentor’ highly enough, and I will most definitely be continuing my development with ‘The Crew Coach’. My goal was to establish a common ground for my crew to develop as a team. Some new crew members, and some crew members who had been with the yacht for some years. I recognised the necessity to have a ‘reset’ and ‘The Crew Coach’ helped me exponentially to achieve this with the values workshop. I cannot say how much I valued the workshop. It was awesome! And the crew loved it, it brought them all together and got them all ‘on the same page’. Recognising their common values and resulting in them dictating the culture which they wanted to instil on board. Enhanced the team, enhanced the moral on board and in turn the operation of the yacht, productivity and quality of guest experience all went through the roof! Don’t think that it’s a ‘one hit wonder!’. These workshops are tools available to us as leaders, to help us be the best leaders we can. Crew management requires constant attention, but with the help of the ’The Crew Coach’, you will be so much better placed to develop and maintain a fantastic team on board”.
