I attended Team Advanced Mastery with a colleague at Shell who was critical to the success of a special project I’d been assigned. He probably felt threatened by the fact that I’d been given the project which was all about improving the area for which he was responsible. The seminar helped us see the situation through each other’s eyes and find a way to work together without being defensive. As a result of our project, Shell went from having almost $7 million in annual losses due to crane and lifting operations incidents to only $150,000 in the first year after implementing the recommendations from the study, then nothing of significance for years afterwards. Team Advanced Mastery was a very successful team-building event for me, our team and our organization.
