Beehive Coaching and Leadership Development Ltd is a business with coaching at its heart – the clue’s in the name. November 2018 saw Beehive pilot its new ‘Coaching for Nuclear Safety Culture’ (Coaching4NSC) workshop with the National Skills Academy Nuclear in Manchester. The one-day workshop combines practical coaching input and skills practice with the WANO Traits of a Healthy Nuclear Safety Culture. Its aim is to explore how adopting the first can contribute significantly to achieving the second.
The workshop also introduced to the world Beehive’s new ‘coaching characters’, drawn and developed by director Sara Lodge with the intention of anchoring key coaching models and concepts in the workplace.
Meet OSCAR and TED, who personify Beehive’s coaching approach and coaching models, and Prudence, a human performance specialist representing the ‘conservative bias’ so important to nuclear safety culture.
The Coaching4NSC workshop joins Beehive’s suite of workshops in the ‘Transforming Safety Behaviours’ family. It’s the first in what will become a series of behavioural workshops exploring the WANO healthy nuclear safety culture traits, helping businesses in the supply chain work towards a healthy nuclear safety culture. The series will show how the traits can be embedded and developed in supply chain organisations through non-directive coaching, human performance, and Beehive’s unique trust-based safety culture model the D2iT, the result of research into safety culture with the Wales Centre for Behaviour Change.
Beehive has been at the cutting edge of behavioural safety and safety culture in the nuclear and power sectors for the last 10 years. An employer-nominated provider for NSAN for that time, Beehive is committed to quality, gaining the prestigious NS4P stamp for many of its flagship behavioural programmes such as the b.SAFE D2iP Safety Leadership Programme.
At Beehive we know that transforming safety behaviours requires the right Mindset + Skills + Tools
Our three x one day, experiential ‘Transforming Safety Behaviours’ workshops includes:
and aims to equip supervisors and managers with the knowledge, tools and skills they need to transform safety behaviours at work.
'Transforming Safety Behaviours' is a [email protected] event, using Brathay Hall’s unique experiential learning environment. We use outdoor activities as a way of simulating safety critical environments, giving an immediacy and relevance that simple classroom based approaches do not have. For more information about Brathay go to Brathay Trust.
Each day is a stand-alone workshop and can be booked separately or together. To download and information pack click here:Transforming Safety Behaviours Information
Every hour every one of us makes on average five errors and in the workplace and every error could lead to an incident or significant event.
Human performance is a systems-based approach to error reduction combining organisational defences, safety culture, safety behaviours and error prevention tools and techniques.
This workshop provides participants with an appreciation of Human Performance theory as well as tools and techniques that will help them reduce error and avoid or mitigate the impact of incidents and events.
The workshop includes:
A coaching style of management has long been associated with improved results and productivity and the benefits are now being felt in the field of health and safety. Coaching is not just about using open questions – it is a fundamental shift in mindset and behaviours which increases accountability and empowerment and ultimately saves lives.
The coaching mindset and coaching skills do not just improve the effectiveness of Human Performance and other error avoidance tools and models, they increase engagement in safety and employee engagement and participation, a key element of the new ISO 45001 safety standard.
The workshop covers;
And, importantly, because coaching is a practical skill we provide lots of opportunity for practise!
While the value of supporting apprentices through mentoring is increasingly being recognized, 75% of managers feel they fulfil the role of mentor, but only 26% of millennials agree, demonstrating a significant mentoring knowledge and skills gap.
Mentoring is not just for apprentices, however. It can provide support to anyone going through a significant workplace transition, and is an effective way of capturing and passing on tacit knowledge across functions and age profiles.
This workshop provides participants with:
Interdependency is the safety culture associated with the fewest accidents and injuries and is therefore the safest way of working - (ref research by Du Pont Du Pont Bradley Curve).Trust is the key interpersonal component of Interdependency - (ref Beehive/Bangor University research).
Trust is an attitude. To increase trust and therefore interdependency it is necessary to demonstrate you are worthy of trust by displaying trustworthy behaviours - (ref Beehive/Bangor research &Trustworthiness Elements)
If you demonstrate trustworthiness through the five elements, others are invited to reciprocate and therefore trust and interdependency builds. The five behaviours are:
The D2iP b.SAFE Leadership Programme is all about developing the five elements of trustworthy behaviour.
The D2iQ metric is about measuring where people are on the spectrum of reactive - interdependent behaviours and how their behaviour changes over time in response to development.
