To be successful, we need to understand the basic principles of selling and leadership, and how those aspects apply to safety. Supervisors have the greatest influence on employee behavior and are often held accountable for safety performance. Selling safety to upper management is different; it’s very different than selling safety to the front-line employee. Selling Safety: Lessons from a Former Front-Line Supervisor explains the three key characteristics of a successful leader; Vision, Knowledge and Heart. Patrick Karol relates these core characteristics to safety leadership and provides actions that can be used today. He explains the lessons learned based on his experiences and the teachings of current leaders inside and outside the safety field. FEATURES -Offers selling techniques to safety leadership -Covers three (3) key components of successful leaders and applies them to safety leadership -Presents real life scenarios, examples and obstacles -Includes a Personal Action Plan worksheet that readers can use to develop their plan.
"Pat does a great job capturing the key elements of safety – that genuine care and concern for the well-being of others. He is extremely effective articulating how he makes safety personal, which comes alive in his book the same way he communicates with live audiences. A very genuine, heartfelt message that really resonates with leaders and front-line workers. Pat’s message has had a great impact on our organization – a definite must read!"
