It is difficult on occasion for EHS practitioners to stay highly motivated because of the "second guessing" and attitude from some of the people we support (our customers) and the people who manage operations (our clients). This presentation is designed to maintain the high level of motivation EHS practitioners need in order to stay effective.

The presentation helps us remember

  • Why we do what we do
  • Is it for the money
  • To be universally loved
  • To be understood
  • To be accepted

It's because you care about what happens to them out there. To their family, and friends and co-workers We discuss the difference between our "customers" and our "clients"

We talk about leadership and the different kinds of leadership
  • Thought leadership
  • Personal leadership
  • Results leadership
  • People leadership

We discuss how best to lead from our position within the organization We discuss the poem "I chose to look the other way" We discuss adversity and how to get through it in order to maintain our morale.

Why should you Attend: The day-to-day interaction with the people you support and the management you protect sometimes cause friction and angst on their part.
