This is a seminar hosted by Middlesex University London with Sidney Dekker for business leaders and managers interested in improving safety by building and aligning organisational strengths.

Safety has traditionally been about the elimination of negative outcomes. In the pursuit of this goal, people have increasingly become a problem to control, and safety a bureaucratic activity. In this one day Learning Lab, participants will learn how safety can be managed by seeing people as a resource to harness, how safety can be about enabling things to go right, and how safety can become an ethical responsibility to do what is right.

Enabling Safety suggests a paradigm shift in how organisations understand and manage safety. This paradigm sees deviations and people’s behaviours not as the causes of incidents, but as symptoms of how work is organised. To adapt and overcome, organisations can focus on building strengths, harnessing the potential of their people to contribute, and find direction by doing what is right by their employees.

Over the last 5 years, a growing number of organisations have developed practices and methods that help organisations to organise safety differently. In this one day Learning Lab, attendees will be introduced to the ideas and principles that underpin the Enabling Safety construct, with proven tools, methods and practices that allow organisations to manage safety differently, delivering resilience, productivity and safety.

Participants will learn:

  • Why focusing on what helps and hinders normal work will improve safety
  • How people are a solution to harness, rather than a problem to control
  • New ways to measure safety that will drive empowerment and innovation
  • Why leaders need to host conversations about what goes on at work
  • How organisations can learn from what goes right
  • How organisations have managed to build their safety management systems on the Safety Differently principles.

This Sidney Dekker seminar, hosted by Middlesex University London, is designed for business leaders and managers interested in exploring new ways to learn from failure and to restore trust and accountability in their organisations. 

A just culture is an organizational culture of trust, learning and accountability. It is particularly important when an incident has occurred; when something has gone wrong. How do you respond to the people involved? What do you do to minimize the negative impact, and maximize learning? You will learn about restoring trust and accountability in your organization by investing in people, relationships and restorative justice; about dealing with the trauma, guilt but also the resilience that can follow incidents; and about the very meaning of disaster, loss and suffering in a scientific age. 

Over the last years, a growing number of organisations have tried to implement policies, practices and methods that help them deal responsibly with the aftermath of failure. In this one day Master Class, attendees will be introduced to the ideas and principles that underpin the Restorative Justice movement, but also the proven tools, methods and practices that allow organisations to manage the aftermath of failure justly, humanely and with a focus on learning and improvement.

Participants will learn:

  • How to establish a just culture appropriate for their organisation
  • The difference and affinities between retributive and restorative responses to failure
  • Different ideas about why people inside your organisation break rules
  • Ways to respond to the criminalisation of human error
  • How to think about accountability in constructive, forward-looking ways
  • How to minimize the negative impact of incidents, and how to maximise learning

London, UK - Enabling Leadership Master Class

London, UK - Enabling Leadership Master Class

Port Skills & Safety Limited (map)

Art of Work invite you to join a Master Class for business leaders and managers interested in improving their leadership skills and enabling better performance.

What can leaders do to enable better performance? Traditional assumptions about leaders suggest that leaders have the answers, followers need to be motivated and instructed, and that control needs to be positioned close to the top of organisations, in particular when it comes to safety critical conditions. But experience shows that this way of leading creates more problems than it solves.

This Enabling Leadership Master Class will convey essential skills for leaders to enable better performance, based on an examination of the conditions that help people to perform. Enabling leadership is not about making great leaders - it is about making others great.  

Through a combination of case studies and thought provoking exercises, attendees will learn:

  • how to unlock contributions and discretionary efforts of employees at all levels
  • how to better capture and use collective intelligence to create a learning organisation
  • how to adapt and evolve how work is done - continuously and in the wake of failures
  • how to enable great performance by providing solutions rather than constraints

The Master Class will explore safety related issues, but the concepts involved are applicable in other operational areas as well.

Participants will receive:

  • Tony Hseih's book 'Delivering Happiness'
  • Copies of the presentation material
  • Membership to Art of Work’s exclusive Lighthouse Centre of Excellence
  • Access for 6 months to a Master Class web portal loaded with resources relating to foundations of Enabling Leadership, including case studies, change strategies, journal articles, book references, links to e-resources, and tools to collaborate with other participants beyond the Master Class event.

The Master Class will be presented by Marc McLaren. Marc is Chief Enabler at Art of Work. Marc is an engaging presenter, analytical thinker, executive leader, facilitator, and WHS professional with over 25 years of business and field management experience. He understands the breadth and depth of WHS, which has resulted in the development of an innovative portfolio of services. Marc’s initial study covered psychology, sociology and political science at the University of Sydney, graduating with a Bachelor of Social Studies. Marc has continued learning and has been awarded a Master of Occupational Health and Safety with distinction from the University of Newcastle. He is currently researching organisational safety decision-making and performance at UTS in Sydney.
