Field Management Leaders Receive Training in Midland


Energy Workforce Members gathered at ProPetro Services in Midland March 23-24 for the Field Operations Leadership Program, learning tools and strategies to help develop and refine their leadership skills. The group included participants from all aspects of oil and gas operations – from foremen to field operations managers to technical support, logistics and more.

The Field Operations Leadership Program, facilitated by Envision Group, is a two-day seminar including a one-on-one executive coaching session designed to transform managers from individual contributors into effective leaders.

Envision Founder and CEO Pat Lipovski and his team worked with the group, exploring and analyzing practices that support development of organizational networks and culture. They applied leadership tools such as goal setting and strategies for effective communication. Participants learned about the most common leadership styles and coaching models, and identified how to recognize ideal candidates for development.

Several participants shared what they took away from the program:

“I’ve attended several leadership training programs throughout my career, and I can tell you this is one of the best by far. I learned so many tools to use not only in my career, but also in my daily life when interacting with others.”

“This was a great opportunity. The knowledge I gained will be something to carry forward and also help develop future leaders.”

During the seminar, participants broke into groups to role play and practice the tools and models being shared. Groups discussed several topics, including what makes a great leader, how to create and build trust within your teams, how to deliver effective feedback, change management and more. The breakouts provided the participants time to put the tools into practice, all while developing relationships with people they haven’t worked with before.

Following the program, each participant will have an executive coaching session, which will provide an opportunity for the participants to invest time in themselves and identify blind spots, discover ways to fill gaps, and build upon the other skills they already have in place.

The Field Operations Leadership Program will be offered again June 6-7 at Diamondback Energy in Midland and virtually June 19-20.

Thank you to host ProPetro Services, and strategic partners Chevron, NexTier and SLB.
