“Coaching safety.” That’s a mouthful. We often think we know what it entails without realizing what it is we’re trying to coach. For instance, are we doing safety coaching or safety leadership coaching? There’s a difference. Are we coaching safety performance or safety leadership performance? Again, there’s a difference. One has to do with reinforcing compliance; the other has to do with reinforcing safety culture.
We’ll get in to these differences as we move through this series. But for now, there’s an even more fundamental issue to consider; namely, ensuring that what we are coaching is actually coachable.
