Where are the snags in the command chain when things are fraught? How can they be unravelled with good communication? What do the signals you send out as a manager mean if there is an accident? If there is an accident, will you always need follow-up on the crisis?

Get a leg up on good communication and avoid using the wrong words and signals that can make a crisis worse. Communication that functions well during and after an accident can have a major impact on mental well-being aboard subsequently. Get help to be well prepared to give you the best possible chance to keep the situation under control in the event of accidents or piracy.

Aim and content

By starting off from how we know from experience that we all react in a crisis, we tackle crisis management and good practice. The aim of the course is to give you tools for how to handle crises and avoid misunderstandings and frustration due to lack of clear communication and inability to understand each other in a tense situation.

Note that the tools for conflict resolution and communication can also be used for general conflict management aboard.

The course deals with such issues as:

  • How to get the situation under control and keep control of crew when an accident occurs?
  • What is the right way of saying things when there has been an event?
  • What is required for everyone to feel seen and heard?
  • What are crises and how should we handle them?
