The Bridge to Excellence: The Bridge to Safety Excellence model has been proven.

Since 2008, the Bridge to Safety Excellence model has been a proven model hundreds of organizations have leveraged to convey the precise elements to be addressed to close the gap between compliance and culture, determine where they are on the path to sustainable excellence, and develop a strategy to achieve it.

Based on the new best-selling book, Bridge to Excellence: Building Capacity for Sustainable Performance, this keynote explores the new thinking on how to create business excellence through safety excellence.

Mastering the Five Capacities for Safety Excellence: System, Leadership, Culture, Engagement and Strategic

These five capacities are required for safety excellence. Explores how they synergize to produce excellent, sustainable results and lead to high reliability. This keynote leads the audience on a thought-provoking journey balancing case studies with practical execution guidance and matures the thinking necessary for driving change at all levels of the organization.

Leading through Trust, Buy-In and Ownership - At All Levels: Do employees perform well because you inspire them to or because they are fearful?

Do you want a culture of have-to or want-to? The answer is obvious. However, at all levels, many leaders unintentionally make some common mistakes that undermine what they are trying to accomplish. Some actually harm their own efforts while trying to improve performance and culture. Good intentions are not enough! To create sustainable, above-and-beyond performance in others, you must create an environment where individuals feel motivated to provide critical discretionary effort.

Strategy Development & Execution Safety Culture vs. Corporate Culture: A Strategy for Bot

Safety will never become a core value within a company culture until the safety strategy is aligned with and supports the business strategy. Every organization has a “safety culture,” but could it be better? Yes, always, but not by doing more in safety.

It is achieved by continuously doing things better and capturing and delivering real, sustainable value. How efficient and value-focused are your safety efforts? Explore how to align the cultures and strategies within your organization.

Shawn Galloway Reviews

“We are at a point in our continuous improvement EHS journey where we are plateauing in performance. We contacted ProAct Safety to provide thought leadership on methods to drive our EHS culture to the next level. Shawn recorded a keynote address for us to use at a recent EHS Summit which resonated strongly with our teams. His messaging and approach aligns very well with our mission and vision and will be a key factor as we continue to develop our strategic 5 year plan. Great resource!”
