Events and Meetings


The role of Health and Safety Leader can be challenging, tricky and rewarding. Bringing multiple stakeholders together to solve health and safety problems requires skillful facilitation. Most of us chair meetings, but rarely have we had any formal training on how to work with the interpersonal dynamics that emerge around the meeting table. By attending this session as a formal health and safety expert in your organization, an informal workplace champion or committee co-chair, you will learn skills and strategies for resiliency in your role. These skills will help you embrace different perspectives and help to instill confidence in your leadership ability to affect positive change in your organization. In this interactive session, participants will learn how to:

  • Use self-awareness to help you in any leadership role
  • Engage skills for regulating emotions when passion peeks in meetings
  • Bounce back from difficult interactions that inevitably happen
  • Re-energize when the road is long and immediate outcomes are not achievable
  • Facilitate a balanced meeting to get the most of all members and diversity of input
