Talking Points

Leadership Under Pressure - What it really takes

For leaders who always feel like they are too busy. Or, for leaders who might, suddenly, find themselves in the firing line. In a BOOM event. Having to deal with a tragedy or a disaster situation. These times require significant emotional, behavioural, and situational control, which does not come easy during times of pressure.

Anton will show you how to ‘create conscious control’.

Why controlling your cortisol will help you to lead better

The body’s stress response system is complex. It peaks and troughs with life events and perceived threats. It is also self-limiting … our stress response switches off when the threat has passed. If it passes … that is the real risk. Some leaders don’t allow their stress response system return to normal levels. Ever. And this is a great formula for anxiety, depression, headache, sleep issues and a range of other major psychological and physical impacts.

Psychological safety must be a priority for 2022 leaders

If team members are not heard, they feel hurt. When it is not safe to share ideas or opinions, for fear, ridicule, resentment, or rejection, they remain silent. To make a real change to your team dynamics, leaders need to develop psychologically safe teams. In 2022, this involves the LEAD process (Learn about others, Engage in dialogue, Articulate your feelings and Demonstrate behavioural control).

Resilience is not about coping, it is about advancing through adversity

Resilient leaders are better leaders. They can reframe situations and take a positive from most situations and circumstances. The four kinds of resilience include mental resilience, emotional resilience, social resilience, and physical resilience. And building resilience is a process. A process of improvement. Improvement of skills including emotional control, collaboration, reasoning, movement, and future focusing.

I could have died; you don’t have to …

Yes, Anton did something stupid. Yes, Anton could have been killed. No, he couldn’t use my hands for a few months. Yes, he suffered what would now be classed as PTSD. He learnt that when we put other things, like time or production, before our own safety, things go bad. And, my incident, like most, was preventable. Why do workers the world over, think it is better to put themselves in unsafe positions at work, when there are loved ones waiting at home for them. It just doesn’t make sense. Learn from his mistakes, and don’t learn safety by accident …

Feedback
What an amazing speaker. Really gets the audience rocking. Great work, Anton, looking forward to you speaking at another one of our events Dane Linforth

Anton Guinea and TGG are safety thinking and safety culture experts. They just know how to gather safety data, safety knowledge and safety information … and they know how to turn that information into safety strategy that engages staff and provides solid safety frameworks. Thanks TGG for being a valuable partner in our safety culture journey.
