Maximising performance
through your people

What we do


Lead OP Excellence

A world-class operational performance improvement method developed by SSL.

This asset-based performance improvement approach is borne out of decades of energy and marine technical experience (SSL team members have held senior industry positions up to Drilling Superintendents and Asset Managers and key senior field personnel) and extensive military experience (including Master Performance Coaches from the British Army). 

Project Coaching

SSL project coaching is real time on the job method of enhancing personnel development and understanding.  Coaches who are mentors use their skill set to promote job ownership and decision making increasing job awareness, appreciation and efficiency.  Personnel find the method easy - they can approach the coaches and use their experience and knowledge as a warehouse of information and they are also a good sounding board. 

Training & Accelerating Competency

The SSL approach is all about taking conventional methods of training and developing people while applying a support medium, where those being developed can see exactly how the training and developments affect their day-to-day operations and are linked to step change performance improvement.  SSL is about making operational performance coaching fit where the existing Operational training and development leaves gaps.
