W7: Safety Leadership
Helping managers and supervisors do even more to protect their people through safety leadership.
Negative (even if unintended) attitudes and behaviours of managers and supervisors can ruin years of work spent building a brilliant safety culture. Sometimes we feel we just can’t get the safety culture right. The trouble is it’s often difficult to tell how well you’re doing as a supervisor or manager on the safety front. Most employees and even bosses don’t give effective feedback. Even upward or 360-degree feedback systems don’t usually cover the safety ground.
What You Gain From Our Safety Leadership Workshop
Now, in one day, you can take the time and reflect on your own leadership style and its implications for safety. You can also gain a deeper insight into the thinking of employees and how they perceive things about your behaviours and what they mean for safety.
There is no “beating about the bush” in this workshop. You are already doing some of the things a good safety leader should be doing. However, some of the revelations will surprise you and may even offend you. Being offended won’t help protect your people. Therefore, we go into the deep psychology of human motivation and provide practical tools to overcome employees’ resistance to us and what we are asking them to do.
Since 1995 Safety Improvers has delivered hundreds of behavioural safety workshops offshore and onshore to over 1000 personnel. We have found some very revealing insights which you can use to be a brilliant safety leader and hence protect your people even more.
Here’s what we cover in during the day.
- What makes a brilliant leader?
- Behavioural factors that cause silly mistakes.
- What should we be doing from a safety perspective to apply these leadership principles?
- How do the troops think about managers and supervisors regarding safety?
- What can we do to overcome negative perceptions employees have of us?
A deep understanding of how your behaviours influence the safety behaviours of others and guidance on what you can do to overcome any misperceptions.
