Today’s leaders in environmental health and safety are looking for new ways to go beyond technical ability and effectively motivate others in their organizations to become ‘change agents’ in the pursuit of reducing worker illnesses and injuries. This development program is designed to provide the following to current and emerging leaders in health and safety:

  • Share your current leadership challenges in the workplace and exchange perspectives with peers in the industry. This is a unique opportunity to meet regularly with members of the health and safety community to learn from, and alongside, one another.
  • Apply leadership and coaching skills in real-time with feedback from experts in peer-coaching and leadership research.
  • Expand current leadership strengths by setting an effective goal to continue building.
  • Learn foundational evidence-based models, frameworks, and tools for developing your own leadership including:
  1. Leader Developmental Readiness - learn more about four core capabilities for all leaders at all levels, and gain skills to motivate others to be safer in the workplace.
  2. Full-Range Leadership - learn four transformational leadership capabilities that you can grow and develop over the life of your career.
  3. Psychological Capitol - Understand how to better support mental health in the workplace through the application of techniques around Psychological Capital and Emotional Optimization. Develop positive practices for creating inclusive and collaborative team environments.Leadership skills are a priority for safety professionals who are designing and implementing interventions to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses.

This is one of currently three courses offered as part of the Leadership Academy for occupational health and safety professionals seeking to improve their leadership skills in order to transform the safety culture in their organization.

This Full Range Leadership Development course is anchored in the Center for Leadership and Strategic Thinking’s Leadership Development Blueprint. This development framework was formed using over 20 years of research practice focusing on leadership. The course will be delivered remotely over twenty weeks and will include a series of live, interactive video conference sessions, and three surveys designed to measure a broad range of leadership styles.
