Have your safety leaders and managers realized yet that safety is less about you and more about them? I mean your workforce, of course. Do you think of yourself as a team player? You are not! You are the team coach! You don't work safely; they do! You don't get injured on the job (hopefully); they do! You don't produce great safety performance by being a great leader. You produce great safety performance by leading great people.
When you come to work each day, do you strive to be a greater leader or to lead greater people? The better you make them, the better you look. The famous executive coach Marshall Goldsmith proposed the following formula: Less Me + More You = More Success.
