The leader's ability to inspire and influence will become his single, most effective competitive advantage.

Shawn M. Galloway, president of ProAct Safety, will serve as keynote speaker at the 2014 Safety Leadership Conference in Livonia, Michigan, on Wednesday, December 3, 2014. Galloway’s talk, “The Transformational Leader: From Hands and Feet to Hearts and Minds” will provide both an inspirational and controversial look at how great leaders inspire discretionary effort in safety and other important areas of operational performance. The one-day conference is designed to support leaders responsible for employee safety. It is co-sponsored by the Construction Association of Michigan (CAM) and the American Society of Engineers (ASSE).

Galloway’s keynote will tackle the role of leaders in promoting excellent safety performance. “Once a higher level is reached in an organization, individuals are less judged by what they have personally contributed, and more by what they have led others to accomplish. Sustainable excellence develops from a motivated and inspired work force; it is not the result of behavioral manipulation or managed delegation. Ask yourself if your company has a have-to or want-to culture and if there is more emphasis on results, or the performance that yielded the results,” said Galloway. “Leaders impact performance and influence culture and the sustainability of results. The leader's ability to inspire and influence will become his single, most effective competitive advantage.”
