Based on recent FSI/SIF trends, we must continue to develop our leadership and influence. Surveys from business and organizational executives confirm that employers want strong leadership and communication skills in their EHS professionals. Understanding key principles and building leadership skills are what make the difference in achieving, or not achieving, success in today's competitive marketplace. This session will focus on strengthening the right leadership skills and attributes critical to leading teams, programs, and businesses. These skills are critical to optimize effectiveness and be a valued member of your enterprise. They are necessary to make good things happen in a demanding, complex work environment and to be seen by management, peers, and subordinates as an exceptional asset to the organization rather than just a technical expert.
Upon completion, the participant will be able to:
• Discuss why the IH profession tends to struggle with leadership and influence.
• Create rapport and build trust by tailoring leadership and communication, as needed.
• Recognize that a person cannot influence without trust, and one cannot trust without rapport.
