Our students routinely tell us “this is the best course I’ve ever attended.” That defines our standard for delivery for each of our courses, to be the best course they ever attended. We’re convinced the line management experience of our instructors, our highly interactive format, the practical tools and concepts that are taught, and the fact that lecture and a huge number of PowerPoints are not part of our approach helps toward that goal
Our flagship course for front line leaders, Managing Safety Performance, was specifically aimed at providing front line leaders practical tools to help them achieve their foremost goal of seeing to it that everyone goes home safe, every day. The success of this course has led to specific requests from clients to develop courses for the other important business goals that a supervisor has to achieve for the business to succeed.
Five easy ways to find the best training for your organization:
MANAGING SAFETY PERFORMANCE™ SUITE
This suite of training courses provides practical safety leadership skills to front line supervisors, managers, self-managing teams and individuals. Managing Safety Performance teaches both “what to do” and “how to do it” based on best practices found in world class organizations and the most successful role models.
This course is designed to give powerful hazard recognition insight and provide practical tools and techniques to those responsible for performing the work of the organization and those responsible for seeing that work done by others is done safely. Managing Risk provides practical hazard recognition skills and teaches both “what to do” and “how to do it” based on best practices found in world class organizations and the most successful role models.
WHAT WENT WRONG™
Accidents and incidents don’t “just happen.” They are caused. If the organization wants to learn from the experience, they must understand what really happened and determine what to do to avoid the same thing from happening again in the future. To accomplish this, every company has an accident and incident reporting and investigation process. Many have invested in computer reporting systems, quantitative and statistical analysis techniques, and purchased propriety investigation methodology. All of these processes depend on effective execution at the point of the investigation. In most cases – all but the most significant accidents – front line supervisors are entrusted with execution of the system. What Went Wrong workshop teaches principles, processes and practices that successful supervisors and managers use in the investigation process. Taught are methods that complement investigation systems – whether commercial or company specific.
In business, execution is the engine of performance. Since things don’t organize themselves, execution is management’s function. If you’re a senior leader interested in improving the execution in your organization, what do you do, and how do you do it? Balmert Consulting’s Driving Execution: Effective Leadership Practices to Convert Goals into Results™ course provides leaders with practical answers to those two questions.
Fundamentals of Process Troubleshooting™
Teaming with Simulation Solutions, a world-wide leader in computer simulation for training, Fundamentals of Process Troubleshooting addresses a critical need in the process industry: how do operating staff members learn to troubleshoot technical problems? The Fundamentals of Process Troubleshooting teaches a step-by-step method and offers participants the opportunity to immediately apply these methods using state of the art simulation of common process industry equipment and systems.
Influencing Skills for the Safety/Health/Environmental Professional™
Bringing problems to the surface and getting support for solutions is critical for the business to meet lofty HSE goals described in the corporate mission statement. The benefit of effective staff leadership and influence is huge – to the business and to the HSE professional. Influencing Skills for the HSE Professional teaches practical “what to do” and “how to do it” techniques for the challenges the every staff professional experiences.
Managing Your Operations™
In industry, the front line supervisor lives at the intersection of the most important processes in the business: the point where raw materials, production technology, methods and procedures and people combine to produce the products that create the value for the enterprise. It’s the point of execution. Get it right, and the business is bound to be successful. Get it wrong, and there is guaranteed to be a flurry of activity focused around the problem – and you!
That doesn’t change the fact that the organization has a huge amount riding on your ability to manage your operation. Your job is to see that your team executes. How you do that – managing your operation – is what this course is all about.
Teaching the Teacher™
Teaching involves making things known and understood. Training isn’t teaching. All of us have, at one time or another, walked out of a training session wondering what we learned and why we were there. The instructor was more focused on being on the right PowerPoint slide, reciting prepared text at the prescribed time. Great teaching is rare, especially as a part of corporate training programs. When it is good, teaching is dynamic, fluid, highly interactive engaging the minds of all in the class. Good teaching is the difference that makes the difference.
We’ve reduced the tools and techniques of the best teachers to a set of practices that can be taught and learned. This course is designed to teach those who teach the same skills all the great teachers share in common: the capability to help others know the subject. Taught are the basic tools and techniques that can help anyone teach better – no matter what subject or skill they are teaching.
The Managing Safety Performance™ suite of training courses provides practical safety leadership skills to front line supervisors, managers, self-managing teams and individuals. They teach both “what to do” and “how to do it” based on best practices found in world class organizations and the most successful role models.
If you’re a senior leader interested in improving the execution in your organization, what do you do, and how do you do it? Driving Execution: Effective Leadership Practices to Convert Goals into Results™ course provides leaders with practical answers to those two questions.
