  The 7 Qualities of Outstanding Safety Professionals
We all know the allure of lists. David Letterman’s Top 10 lists were often a highlight of his late-night show, and consumer magazines and bloggers are masters at crafting headlines starting with, “3 Reasons for,” “4 Ways to” or “9 Steps of.”
In this case, “The 7 Qualities of Outstanding Safety Professionals” is the title of a concurrent session at our upcoming Safety 2018 conference in San Antonio. And the list crafted by presenters Josh Franklin, M.B.A., CSP, CET, and CeCe Weldon, M.B.A., CSP, ARM, is thought-provoking and intriguing, partly due to its brevity:

  • Personal development
  • Balance
  • The average
  • C-suite perspective
  • The secret
  • Feedback
  • Giving back
For an in-depth look at the seven qualities you need to be an outstanding safety professional, click here.
