clip_image001Be it in the workplace or in the leagues of elite sporting clubs, there are 4 key components that underpin a ‘winning’ team mentality:

· The first is the individuals and the extent to which they are they self driven. A coach must identify each player’s intrinsic motivators and develop their personal leadership qualities.

· The second is the supporting structure and planning processes that promote team development and continuous improvement for both players and managers.

· Third is the culture of team support. Are the players working together as a group of ‘mates’ or is there one show pony on the field, destabilising the efforts of the team? Optimal team culture is best described as positive peer pressure.

· Finally, the fourth component is the application of all these elements, creating meaningful links between theory and skills to achieve the results.

These components will be discussed in more detail during a briefing that marries the experience of a former Perth based AFL On-Field Development Manager with DuPont safety leadership techniques. Safety leaders aiming at achieving Zero Harm in the workplace will be inspired by this highly engaging session and a technology enabled interactive feature will present a real-time survey of audience opinion to promote peer to peer sharing of ideas and experience.
