What Are Safety Leaders And Does Your Business Need One?

As the manager of your business, the safety of your staff is in your hands.

Who is a safety leader?

A safety leader is a member of your staff whose task is to ensure that their colleagues abide by the workplace safety protocols. As the title hints, this person should possess leadership qualities. It is important for them to be able to make sound decisions, allowing them to oversee the safety and general wellbeing of your team.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas… When you hear this phrase, what do you think?

Does your heart perk up a little? The celebration of the King is here! It’s time to open all of the presents people have gotten me!

Does your heart drop? Ugh, another Christian holiday. Or maybe it’s the dread of another holiday missing a loved one.

Whatever your response to the term Merry Christmas, one thing I know. It is a holiday I will be celebrating. It is a great celebration of God coming to earth. Of God sacrificing his life for the redemption of mankind.

While we may not all celebrate the day, I want to wish every reader of the blog a Merry Christmas. May your day tomorrow be filled with good cheer, good tidings, and the knowledge that there is more to life than business or your job.

What should you do? How do you remove the tension from the room?

You name the tension. You let your team know you recognize there is tension. And you give it a name.

Name The Tension

Almost every tension we face has a name. This is true in the business world and our personal lives.

Yet, we’re afraid to name what’s wrong. We cannot bring ourselves to give what we’re feeling or sensing a name.

But have you ever given a name to the tension?
