Why do people take unnecessary risks? When we hear how someone was injured, sometimes our first reaction is, "Why would they think it was safe to do that?" Yet, if we were in the same situation, many of us would take the same risk! Humans are fallible and easily influenced. You can use several strategies to help minimize the likelihood that someone will take unnecessary risk. To strengthen our safety leadership skills, we should view our world in three ways: look around, look out and look in.

Learning Objectives:
Distinguish the difference between having a people problem versus a situation problem and how most of us make the wrong diagnosis
Explain how watching out for another person is one of the keys to improving self-awareness and reducing personal risk-taking
Describe how to use positive priming as a simple but powerful strategy for influencing subconscious thoughts
Discuss how the effectiveness of these strategies depends upon our skill in conducting a personal safety conversation
