“Strong leaders don’t have attitude, they have standards.”
As many Safety Professionals know from experience, we’re continually challenged about our standards when it comes to influencing how safety is implemented within our organizations. The perception is attitude: the appearance that we’re status seeking or power hungry. A true leader is aware of this potential perception, and works to minimize it with the focus being on the objective standard that permeates all: the safety of human resources. It’s our expectations, processes, and support that leads to that desired outcome.
