More and more of safety and health professionals want to talk about influence rather than authority. You see, they understand that relying primarily on position or rank will simply lead to compliance -- not to individual commitment.
Authority is about Gotta, not Wanna.
And I Wanna Do It will lead to both I Can and We Can.
Isn't that what you want within your culture for safety?
Shouldn't everyone know they have influence and be able to use it?
