“You can’t reach for anything new if you’re holding onto yesterday’s junk.”
– Laura, Noom Coach
Learning lessons from the past is a great way to prevent making the same mistakes. Holding on to the “failures” of the past to validate what’s wrong, continually find blame, or remain humble is not healthy for a team or organization. Using the technique of finding “failures” in the process vs. focusing on blame allows business owners and safety professionals alike to learn how to move forward successfully. That’s a great way to run a safety process, and a business too.
