January 2022 Meeting – Safety Leadership

Our January 18th meeting was a huge success.  Over thirty safety professionals from the Rochester community joined us to hear Bruce Bolger speak on Transformational Safety Leadership.  He spoke about Sponsor-Target-Agent and how that philosophy can help you create a safer and more compliant workplace for your company.  Bruce spent time outlining Emotional Intelligence and how it applies to everything we do.  My favorite line was, “Let me tell you a story.”  That line can be used to gain attention and explain your viewpoint in a way that is understood.

Thanks to all that attended,
Jim Christiano
