We work with the best drilling teams in the world…
Each oilfield or rig crew has a complete team with exactly the required skill set for the job at hand. Every leading oil company is careful to select the very best choices in manpower. Through decades of trial, error and refinement they know the value of experience and on-going training and certification.
At the same time, technology that can improve safety and efficiency is being continuously developed. Every time there is an opportunity to improve safety, drilling times and costs (and obviously the bottom line profit), this will happen.
The question is, what does a performance consultancy know that a oil company executive or rig manager doesn’t?
Some would argue nothing…
It isn’t lonely at the top!
In every industry, peak performers have coaches and advisors. Olympic athletes, business leaders and country prime ministers and presidents have them, in fact it is hard to imagine rising to the pinnacle of success without help.
Advice from specialists is invaluable, that’s a given. Sometimes these specialists are best placed or sourced in-house, and other times they are best bought in from the outside.
Each company has a culture, a way of acting and approaching tasks. Every company wants to achieve the same goals. They want to maximise output, minimise costs, and do it in a way that is energizing and rewarding for all concerned. In practice, some companies achieve this better than others. In fact, different sections of the same company will perform with varying levels of effectiveness.
Discerning the difference is an art and a science…
A performance consultancy such as Relentless Pursuit of Perfection focuses on this discrepancy, between teams and between companies. This is our main goal, to identify and develop winning behaviors, attitudes and techniques, and help the teams that are already very successful, as well as those that are falling behind.
The end goal is that everyone who comes into contact with us will decide that they also want to pursue perfection.
One of the main ways that excellence can be attained, and even improved upon is in the hearts and minds of each and every worker, from the bottom to the top. When a whole organization comes together and starts to act and think as one team, records can be broken, and millions of dollars can be saved.
Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It’s about keeping your team focused on a goal and motivated to do their best to achieve it, especially when the stakes are high and the consequences really matter. It is about laying the groundwork for others’ success, and then standing back and letting them shine. – Chris Hadfield
