Care2Lead: Safety Leadership for High Performance Organizations

The most important ingredient that sets high performance organizations apart from the rest is leadership. Unfortunately, not everybody is a born leader, but the good news is that effective leadership can be learned. The Care2Lead development program is designed for leaders at all levels of the organizational structure that not only equips attendees with the knowledge and skills they need to effectively lead their teams, but also provides them with a practical strategy and techniques to ensure sustainable change. Safety leadership, and its underlying mechanism, is presented as a positive catalytic force that can turn companies around by fostering trust and psychological safety. Underpinned by contemporary research in cognitive psychology, emotional intelligence, and leadership science, the Care2Lead Program promises to be enlightening, highly inspiring, and transformative.
