Event overview

What does it mean to lead? What does it take to be an effective, inspirational and competent leader for health and safety? How can you reflect on your own leadership style and move your organisation towards becoming an exemplar? There are a variety of terms that are used to describe the best leadership style: transactional, transformational, mindful, and resonant, to name a few. But what do these terms mean and which is the best?

HSL are running a one day event on leadership, with the aim to equip delegates with some of the latest theory and research on key health and safety leadership styles.
