Effective leadership is required in the dynamic field of occupational health and safety with its changing regulations, client demands, constant budgetary constraints, and implementation of best practices. High impact leaders create energizing climates in the workplace and guide executive decisions at all levels of an organization. Today’s environmental health and safety leaders are looking for new ways to go beyond technical ability to motivate and inspire other’s in their organizations to act as ‘change agents’ to reduce worker illnesses and injuries.
This two-day, multidisciplinary course is designed taking into account that leaders and leadership are largely made through experiences. Participants will understand how their personal values and experiences inform their leadership, discover the process to build effective change, and demonstrate how to put leadership development in action.
