HOW TO Swiftly and Sustainably Grow a Just Culture, Safety Culture, and High Reliability
CHEYENNE, WYOMING, June 30, 2015 – At long last, the corporate myth that organizational culture change is ‘hard’ and ‘takes a long time’, has been officially busted. The ‘how to’ insight provided in the newly released book, 6-Hour Safety Culture- How to Sustainably Reduce Human Error and Risk (and do what training alone can’t (possibly) do), [finally] puts them to rest.
“This book offers a true paradigm shift,” offered Ritu Budakoti, Managing Director of the international not-for-profit Human Performance Association. “It truly changes the game regarding HOW to change organizational culture. Rather than just writing about reducing human error and risk, elevating safety, and enhancing reliability, Tim covers specifically what to do and how to do it. Reading this book is a must for anyone seeking next-level organizational performance.”
6-Hour Safety Culture is the first book to be published by the Human Performance Association, Inc. (HPA). Written by Tim Autrey, Founder/CEO of the Practicing Perfection Institute, Inc., it chronicles and details the lessons learned over his past ten years of working with tens of thousands of employees in some of the largest organizations on the planet; efforts where errors have been substantially reduced, events have been eliminated, and work cultures have been dramatically transformed.
“We’ve seen sustained reductions in human error rates of up to 87.5%,” offers Tim Autrey, author of the book. “And get this…at the same time, bargaining unit grievances have dropped by up to 80%! This is an ‘everyone wins’ approach to performance improvement; an idea whose time has truly come. My intent in writing this book has been to ‘spread the word’ on what we’ve learned; to provide tangible HOW-TO information regarding human performance improvement. No hype. No re-hashed clichés. This is quite simply a new (and sane) approach for positively leveraging human nature within organizations.”
For those seeking to attain their ‘next level’ of performance (and who isn’t?), this is a refreshing look at how to do so. No extensive system overhauls required. No expensive databases necessary. “To some, perhaps many, human performance is at best a mystery and at least a “clinical” instruction on how to manage people – to get them to do what you want,” offers Mike Blevins, retired COO of Luminant. “Tim succeeds in lacing together next-level behavior-influencing leadership with colorful stories and real world application. Yes, even to the point of being able to create genuine culture change in as little as 6 hours.”
6-Hour Safety Culture is currently available in both hard copy and Kindle versions on Amazon.com. Those who purchase the book are given access to a library of Videos, Tools, and Resources via the book’s website- http://6HourSafetyCulture.com.
