Team Development for Rio Tinto at Paraburdoo in WA’s Pilbara Region



Rio Tinto’s iron ore mines at Paraburdoo in Western Australia’s remote Pilbara region are a spectacular sight to behold.


The complex operations, that underpin a significant component of Australia’s resources export industry, require a high degree of daily teamwork and collaboration for daily safety and success.


Sabre's MD Talan Miller has enjoyed the opportunity to deliver some team development training for mine shift managers and supervisors. During a tailored ‘Battlespace’ session they demonstrated why they are so effective at keeping these large-scale operations a success.


The military thematic and content enable us to draw meaningful links between military approaches to teamwork, leadership and decision-making and the daily challenges of many different organisations.

The sophisticated scenarios presented by Battlespace provide a great format for individuals and teams to project their behavioural operating styles for observation, de-brief and feedback.


A great opportunity to see a remote part of Australia, and meet some very hard working Aussies that keep Australia’s resources industry moving.
