Forbes Coaches Council Members Lead Clients to Success, Publish New Data
See which members are making valuable change in the coaching industry.
A coach’s work is never done, and two members of Forbes Coaches Council couldn’t agree more. They’re accomplishing great things in their industry, from guiding their clients to success to sharing data that will improve entrepreneurs’ leadership development efforts.
Offshore Drilling Client of RLG International Improves Operations
Robert Mason, Forbes Coaches Council member and “change management guru” at RLG International, helped his offshore drilling client in the Gulf of Mexico save $434 million and improve their safety and reliability. As a leadership and performance coach, Mason helped the company apply best practices from other fields to their change management transformation.
After the company lost 160 drilling days across its fleet each year, 10 days more than the industry average, Mason helped his client articulate their strategy, challenge their limits, get an earlier start and implement front-line engagement, among other tasks. As a result, the company has significantly improved its project performance. Known by RLG International as Project Excellence™ (Px™), the process is a long-lasting solution to enhance planning, optimization and execution.
According to Mason, “When your operation is stuck in a rut, it can be the result of the tired old way of doing things. It is easy to recognize that change is needed, but it takes much more to make and implement that change. In these situations, bringing in a fresh set of eyes can make all the difference.”
