General sessions provide career advice
There are a few general sessions at Safety 2017 that cater to all industries and types of employees. Tuesday morning’s opening general session is called “True Success: The art of Achievement in Times of Change,” and is being presented by Tom Morris, one of the world's top public philosophers and pioneering business thinkers. He's the author of 20 books. His “electrifying talks reengage people around their deepest values and reignite their passion for work and life.”
“We all need ideas we can trust,” says the description for Morris’s talk. The talk will present a simple, powerful and complete framework of seven universal conditions for deeply satisfying, sustainable excellence in all that we do. Morris’s “7 Cs of Success” have fueled extraordinary results in pockets of excellence around the world, and have never been more important than they are today. In a high-energy and entertaining session, Morris will reveal the most fundamental tools for personal and institutional greatness and provide a practical guide for their use every day.
On Wednesday, the morning general session will be given by Mel Robbins and is called “From Successful to Satisfied: How to Become the Leader You Want to Be.” Robbins says, “leaders at every level have to deal with a sobering reality: the world has changed more in the last five years than in the last fifty. What worked in the past, will often fail with customers and colleagues today and you must achieve more with less time, less resources and higher stakes. Plus, the more successful you become, the harder it is to change.”
In this motivational speech, Robbins will explain how rapid change has impacted your role as a leader and will guide the audience through the process of identifying key areas and opportunities to raise their professional game. Attendees are expected to leave the motivational talk with key objectives for professional and personal growth, and the knowledge and inspiration to become the leader they want to be.
The closing general session on Thursday afternoon will discuss “Why We Make Mistakes” with speaker Joseph Hallinan. He will try to answer the following questions: “Why do otherwise intelligent people make obvious mistakes? Why are we so easily distracted? Why do we often miss what’s right in front of our eyes? Why do we make mistakes? And could we do a little better?”
Hallinan will explore the captivating science of human error — how we think, see, remember and forget. In a highly customized talk, full of anecdotes, relevant studies and tips you can use immediately.
