    One thought on “The Courage Factor”

    1. This is a novel like book with references to people based safety. This is a new challenge I have at work and this author is a respected man in this field so this was recommended. This is a great way to reiterate what safety should mean to a work place and I liked it. The main character goes through challenges at work and learns how to evolve her bosses way of thinking about safety. I'm tempted to go to a seminar for this guys teachings, let's hope work pays for it.

    2. A very easy read and not a very complex story, but it serves the purpose of illustrating a change from behavior based to people based management techniques. It basically adds another dimension to Blanchard's two dimensions of competence and confidence.
