Leadership First: How Coaching Leadership Skills Improves Site Safety

Kelly Flagg, Executive Director - AGC Maine

In this session we will explore key elements of leadership. Often front-line supervisors are promoted because they were the best at their craft, but overlook that leadership is a new craft of it's own. As it relates to safety, we teach risk identification and risk reduction technique, but can often overlook the pressures that front line supervisors face as they manage the stress of supervising people, personalities, work flow, production pressure and sometimes client interface. The goal of this session is to provide participants with a different view of the relationship between leadership skills and site safety, and to share 3 basic tools they can use immediately to start this discussion in their own organizations.
