“What spoke to me is that leadership is about who I am, not what I do,” said Salvador Dorantes (Mexico), who took part in the five-day onboard Basic Leadership Training. Organised by HR Services the course aimed to equip crewmembers with knowledge and practical skills in leadership, as some take on greater work responsibilities in the future. Salvador was surprised how much insight he gained. As fireman, Salvador’s work is largely independent from others in the deck department. Still he sees that being on board over one year, makes others look up to him. The training inspired Salvador to do more to encourage the younger people working on deck. The honesty of Logos Hope’s leaders who shared about leadership struggles and triumphs spoke to Salvador. “It changed the panorama of what I thought leadership was,” he said.
