Leader Care Profile
Assessing and Developing Safety Leadership
Bill George said, “successful leaders lead with the heart, not just the head. They possess qualities like empathy, compassion and courage. They also have the ability to establish deep, long-term and genuine relationships where others trust them.” While individuals often become leaders based on their exceptional technical expertise, what makes them successful in fostering a healthy safety culture depends on their ability to influence and motivate their team. In fact, one of the key predictors of organisational safety success turns on the behaviour of those in management positions.
