Sustainable Safety Leadership – Beyond The Training Webinar
So, you’ve done some safety leadership training and have begun thinking about new ways of operating and behaving. But how do you keep it alive and form new habits across your organisation that ultimately achieve the results?
Recent neuroscience research into the way we think tells us that we are hard wired for many of our behaviours – operating on ‘auto pilot’ and repeating behavioural patterns we prefer. How can we leverage this research and gain new insights into embedding safety leadership into our organisational culture and personal actions, way beyond the training?
If you want to ensure that you and your organisation sustain the key messages and outcomes of your safety leadership training, join us for webinar to explore the six key strategies that will awaken and embed your desired safety outcomes.
5 Keys to Managing ‘Risky’ Behaviour Webinar
Held: November 2012 Duration: 30 minutes Presented By: Sue Fricke
Lead Consultant Sue Fricke uncovered 5 key strategies and actions you can take to manage others who seem to choose risky actions over safe actions.
It is often only after an incident occurs that there is recognition that a safe action was not taken, and that the incident could have been prevented. It is possible to change this mindset and create a workplace where risky behaviour is no longer part of the “way we work around here”.
The 5 key strategies will enable you to manage others who have demonstrated a willingness to take the risk rather than follow the procedure.
Sue covered information and practical steps and strategies covering the following areas:
- What you can do – practically and immediately?
- The impact of our daily choices, based on our tolerance of perceived risk
- The role of emotion in personal risk assessment
- Our natural tendency to find a shortcut in decision making
- The role of our brain and its design – where can we can adjust our leadership practices to influence others’ behaviour?
