I recently had an opportunity to attend a leadership training program and always enjoy them. At this one there was discussion about the seven segments of leadership and I quickly decided that I needed to pass these along to all safety professionals. Unfortunately, many times we have to be reminded that we all are in leadership roles. Being a leader to ensure culture development or regulatory compliance or safety communication. No matter what tasks you undertake, always remember these segments. Write them out and practice them over and over again. Take a little time out and think of how these segments can be applied to your job as the safety professional.
What is the inner journey? It’s knowing myself: who I am, how I think, feel and perceive. How I gain mastery of the inner journey can be accomplished through vulnerability, self awareness, reflection and wise feedback (CONNECTION). An example could be an Ah Ha moment! “A moment’s insight is sometimes worth a life’s experience.”
