WISTA: Transform your meetings

One way to establish relevant and powerful organisational value for shareholders and stakeholders is to unlock the true potential of everyone in the organisation by creating a good and healthy working environment for staff where they can think and say what they feel.

The reality for many is that organisations are influenced by a few people, lacking behaviour and with little or no space and time to think. Without a diverse culture the organisation loses out on valuable information and experience – the result is a much narrower perspective for creating options and making decisions.

In meetings this is a common scenario. How often have you been to a meeting and wished you were someone else? That it was a waste of time? That your idea was killed by a grimace by someone else. How often are you interrupted? How often is the meeting monopolised by a few people – sometimes speaking just to hear their own voice? How often have you left a meeting feeling that nothing was achieved?

The Thinking Environment® developed by Nancy Kline of Time to Think creates a structure to enable a more diverse and inclusive culture in which better quality thinking is generated for problem solving and different views are welcomed for discussion and decision-making.

Day of the Seafarer

Seafarers wellbeing

​2017 and 2018 have seen strong momentum in the industry to address seafarer’s wellbeing, particularly their mental health.

To give further exposure to this important issue, our choice for the 2018 Day of the Seafarer theme is “seafarers’ wellbeing”.

By addressing the issue of seafarers’ wellbeing and particularly mental health, this campaign can inform specific strategies to tackle stress and other issues affecting seafarers’ mental conditions –  and make the tools available more widely known.

The campaign will seek to highlight and showcase best practices and good examples but will also, inevitably, bring out areas of concern and examples of shortcomings.
