There is a serious flaw in how most companies think about safety. Many still cling to safety concepts dating back to the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. They rely on systems, structures and processes that had become outdated and obsolete in the "VUCA"-world (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) we work and live in.

In this 1-day seminar specially tailored for executives, senior leaders and safety professionals in industry, Manie Bosman, international leadership consultant who specializes in neuroleadership, will share new insights from research in social neuroscience clearly showing why we can no longer afford to lead and manage safety as we did in the past. Participants will understand why working in environments characterized by fear of failure and retribution severely impairs the human brain’s ability for effective decision making; problem solving; communication; recalling information; creativity and discerning between right and wrong. As an alternative, we will propose a leadership model based on neuroscientific research, which aims to foster inter-personal relationships and create brain-friendly environments and safety cultures that will optimize individual and team performance, productivity and ultimately, safety.

Expected Outcomes:

This seminar serves as an introduction to the Saacosh NeuroSafeTM safety culture transformation process. Participating in this event will help you...

  • understand the new 21st Century leadership challenges;
  • appreciate the futility of only relying on traditional approaches to safety;
  • understand the principles of brain-based influence;
  • understand the critical role of leaders in creating sustainable safety cultures;
  • improve your ability to collaborate and to facilitate collaboration; and
  • appreciate the role of neurosafety in the strive to Zero Harm.
