In response to WSN’s mining industry roundtable request for leadership training, WSN is launching a pilot program ‘The Science of Great Leadership: Building a Safe Profitable Workplace’ with the Institute for Health and Human Potential (IHHP).
IHHP’s Partner and Co-founder, Dr. JP Pawliw-Fry, addressed delegates at WSN’s 2012 Mining Health and Safety Conference on the topic of Emotional Intelligence and ‘Being your best when it matters most’. The key points of resonance were that 84% of leaders know when a difficult conversation is required and only 14% are having them. This gap has an impact on an Internal Responsibility System.
The ‘Science of Great Leadership’ workshop will examine the human factors involved in safety, and provide supervisors with tools to help close this gap. The course addresses the science behind why technically competent people often struggle once moving into leadership roles, and provides leaders with the tools they need to have critical conversations regarding safety, communication, and the knowledge and skills to help cultivate an effective Internal Responsibility System.
The course will use examples and scenarios from the mining industry and will take place in Sudbury on March 19-20, 2013. Peter Taylor will be the facilitator.
