Leadership Coaching

Safety through strong leadership

An organizational culture that prioritizes safety is nearly unattainable without the support and dedication of strong leaders. The complexities of leadership, however, should not be underestimated, nor should the intricacies of ensuring safety throughout an organization. Enlisting the help of specialists in both areas benefits companies by identifying blind spots and strengthening leaders’ skills to ultimately change organizational safety culture for the better.

Our Approach

Our leadership safety coaches work on a 1:1 basis with organization leaders, challenging them to influence the whole workforce through their own attitudes, beliefs and demonstrable behaviors.

We have a variety of methods and approaches to draw on during our coaching sessions that can be implemented singly or in combination, and which can be adapted according to the needs of our clients. These include:

  • Leadership coaching after our Leadership Diagnostic Instrument (LDI): Coaching is structured around the results of leaders’ individual LDI, which is a reliable assessment tool to help clients understand and develop their leadership performance. The LDI provides a detailed picture of the current and desired status, which the coach and client use to plan a developmental journey.
  • Leadership coaching after our Leader Care Profile (LCP): Coaching is designed based on the results of this tool, which was created to improve safety leadership and promote authentic leadership.
  • Leadership coaching after our Leader Team Care Map (LTCM): Coaching takes its cue from this tool that asks a leadership team to evaluate themselves.
  • Leadership coaching after observations from one of our assessments, e.g. Culture of Care Diagnostic or Organizational Culture Diagnostic Instrument (OCDI): Coaching is based on these tools that combine surveys, observation, interviews and focus groups to form a picture of the current realities and the aspirations of an organization and its leaders.
  • Leadership coaching without prior assessment: we use standardized coaching practices to strengthen leaders’ existing competencies applying the GROW model.

We view the development of effective, lasting leadership skills capable of inspiring cultural change as a journey, with our behavioral coaches in a supporting role.

Our leadership database allows participants to compare their performance with others, promoting transparency and a deeper understanding of how safety leadership influences organizational culture.

No matter what combination of specific tools or approaches we use to customize our safety leadership coaching, the end goal is the same: improving leadership skills in order to improve organizational culture.
