    Unexpected setbacks? Embrace them!

    Jim Morris likes his role as host of Schouten Global's leadership seminar: The human factor. The seminars are held at each stopover. "And while our team remains the same, our audience and their culture are different at each location. Our team's journey together has been one, big adventure. Like Team Brunel, we have developed into a flexible, high performance team. We engage unexpected events and setbacks as challenges, which can deliver great results." > read more

    Becoming the superfluous leader

    The Schouten & Nelissen slogan 'A ship is only as strong as its crew' is an even better metaphor for the Volvo Ocean Race, now that the yachts are 'one design' - i.e. all exactly the same. Now it is really down to the people. And it is great that our organization has been able to use its core strengths and not only financially sponsor Team Brunel, but also provide coaching via Anje-Marijcke van Boxtel. And, of course, many parallels can be drawn between racing crews and the teams within organizations. Read the interview with Marieke Schouten, Commercial Director at Schouten Global. > read more

    Winning and overcoming

    Seven competing boats - only one winner. Does this mean six losers? Not according to Hans Kampers. 'Being driven to the utmost by your passion and ambition is also winning. It is victory defined by the discovery of new solutions, by daring, risk-taking and developing your own capabilities. In my view winning is challenging yourself to overcome your own limitations, it is overcoming your personal fear of disappointment or failure - the very things which might prevent you from daring to try out new solutions.' > read more

    Changing down - and then back on the gas

    You have committed to win, your strategy is cutting-edge, your team of top professionals is ready to go - and then you do not win. This happened to Team Brunel, three times. It is hard when you just do not make it to the winner's podium - in yacht racing, as in business. The tendency is to try even harder, to focus on what went wrong. Well, if you have just suffered a heavy loss do not do this, says Hans de Bruin. > read more
