Best Practices for Oil & Gas Security Officers & Supervisors
Course Description
A diverse group of people work in security professions and with a variety of organisations and companies. These professionals need the opportunity to learn about and develop leadership knowledge and skills to enhance both personal and organisational performance. Security departments and their employees need these skills to allow for greater alignment with the organization's vision, mission and goals. Security professionals need to function effectively within the realm of the larger organisation, so it is essential they have leadership skill and ability to lead their teams. In order to achieve a level of best practice in leadership, security professionals should understand the role of leadership as it applies to their industry, their organization and their team.
