There is nothing more important than the safety and well-being of our people, and this book addresses essential solutions that may be applied across multiple industries. I am extremely appreciative of this body of work.
As a reader, I am pleased to admit it has application beyond safety and professional development. It is not a stretch for me to say that I consider any improvement of my understanding and application of key behavioral science principles tends to improve my life beyond that which I apply at work. I doubt it is the author's intention, but the book caused me to reflect upon my own behaviors as a parent. I must admit I sometimes fall into the trap of “fishing” for "What are you, stupid?" behavior beyond the workplace. My children deserve a better household culture than the one their parent has been creating.
On a related note, I highly recommend supplementing this learning experience with an opportunity to hear from the author in one of his many ongoing professional presentations. I have found his personal stories to be quite impactful and compelling. This is one of the first books I’ve read in which I heard the author’s voice in my head instead of my own.
Do not hesitate to read this book. I recommend it to my colleagues and peers any time I have an opportunity to do so.
