As safety evolves within our organizations, many leaders still question how safety fits within the construct so that it is a viable, sustainable and productive part of the organization.

“A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better.”
It’s better to recognize what’s going well, why, and engage to continually improve: nothing’s ignored and success is shared.
The stumbles along the way create opportunities. Eventually, a formula, or habit, that works for the leader emerges.
