Every second day in Australia, someone at work has to have a difficult conversation.
They have to tell a family that someone they love is not coming home from work today.
“Mate, accidents happen”, some say afterward, at the pub.
Well I say that even one accident is too many. They know it, too. So why is it so hard?
As a young sparkie I sat in too many toolbox safety talks, where the team spent the time joking around, too embarrassed to show that they were actually interested.
As a coach I’ve listened to too many stories of people covering up a mate’s antics, only to regret never having had the courage to speak up before it was too late.
And as an executive advisor I’ve helped too many business leaders overcome the frustration of navigating the long-lasting damage that came from someone’s split-second bad decision.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Accidents don’t just happen…
