'An Introduction to the B.safe D2iT Trust-based Safety Culture Model' Zoom Webinar Series

Mark Sykes - director

Mark Sykes is a director of Beehive Coaching & Leadership Development Ltd and has over 20 years of experience embedding change in organisations. He is an experienced sports and performance as well as executive coach and facilitator. His perspective can be best summed up by Henry Ford who once observed, ‘whenever you employ a pair of hands you get a free brain thrown in to the bargain. Whether you use that brain to best effect is a function of the leadership and management across the organisation'. This is as relevant to safety culture and behavioural safety as to any other kind of organisational development.

Apart from a couple of breaks, one working in marketing and one on the Leadership Fast Track of the West Yorkshire Police, she has been in the field of learning and development since 1985, working in places as diverse as Japan, Africa, Canada, Austria and France.

Sara's most recent work has been in the field of behavioural safety, working with Paul Carter of Bangor University on research into the key interpersonal factors that most impact on safety. This has led to the development of the D2iQ, a new metric measuring those interpersonal factors, and the D2iP Behaviour Change programme which develops the interpersonal factors.

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 principles, others are invited to reciprocate and therefore trust and interdependency builds. The five Principles are:

  1. Meaning
  2. Interest in others
  3. Openness
  4. Integrity
  5. Intentionality

The D2iP b.SAFE Safety Leadership Programme is designed to introduce the five principles of trustworthy behaviour and trustworthy leadership within the organisation.
