General Meeting: Leadership: My Personal Perspective—and the Need for Change in Today’s Environment
ABSTRACT of Presentation
Stan Bond shares his perspective on leadership, based on his own personal experience and 30+ years in the oil and gas industry, including learning from adversity. He will draw on actual examples, including Macondo and Thunder Horse. “Without adversity and learning, we would not be here today,” Mr. Bond contended in a keynote speech at the Subsea Tieback Forum in 2012, where the conference theme was Learning from Adversity. “We need to change our culture and not just learn from our mistakes but systematically learn how to avoid them.”
That takes a particular style of leadership—which is all the more important today. Confronted with the steep and sustained low-oil price environment, the industry requires a robust cultural transformation to navigate the current challenges, underscored by issues such as safety, reliability, and escalating cost. Mr. Bond argues a new brand of leadership is essential to proactively innovate, collaborate, standardize and lead with what Hess calls Lean, a management system and approach to leadership which Hess is leveraging to create a high-performance culture to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.
