Your Challenges: Leadership, Safety, Execution​

Our Ideas: Simple, Practical – and Powerful.

For nearly two decades, our ideas have been helping leaders the world over better manage safety performance and execution. Our ideas work: it’s that simple. They come from our own experience: what we’ve seen work, and what we’ve successfully done ourselves.

The techniques and practices are simple: instead of programs or processes that create more work, our tools are simply things that leaders do to lead – better. The tools can be immediately put into practice, and will start making a difference immediately.

All of which makes what we teach powerful!

We Write

For the last eighteen years, we’ve published our Managing Safety Performance Newsletter to a loyal following of industrial leaders across the globe. It’s been our privilege – and pleasure – to share our take on important issues that bear on safety leadership. We’d like to think in its own small way, the Newsletter has made a contribution to making the world a safer place to work. As long as we have things to say, we’ll keep writing the Newsletter.

we speak

Have you ever noticed how many featured speakers resumes begin with “dynamic, motivational, enthusiastic, high-energy, entertaining, highly sought after” and so few begin with “ideas that are line fire-tested, based on real-world experience, thought-provoking, practical and useful”?

If you are looking for the latter – well-presented – you’ve come to the best source!

Our Consultants regularly speak on topics like Leadership, Safety, and Execution.
