Coaching for Leadership in OHS
There are many misconceptions about coaching due to its origin in sports and other performance skill. However, coaching for development (and in particular leadership) is not about giving advice from one experienced leader to another emerging individual. Coaching for development fundamentally respects the resources available within the coachee, acknowledging their whole-of-person experience, and, creates a liminal space for the emergence of new cognitive constructs through a narrative process.
Within the field of coaching for safety leadership in industrial workplaces, Mark has trialed through action learning a process which draws from both authentic and transformational leadership theories. Working with over 200 individuals from frontline supervisor to executive, key learnings about application within the OH&S profession, including embedding into a Safety Leadership Development Program, practical application can be shared in an interactive demonstration with the audience.
Mark has previously delivered this presentation for a AIHS NSW Master class in 2019, however, the process has now been further refined and participants at the conference can keep the resources used in the demonstration.
