Three common problems that lead to casualty
Poor communication is a direct result of:
•Inability to be assertive
•Lack of confidence
•Fear of being wrong
•Not a team player
Any of the above allows uncertainty to develop resulting in flawed communication between people.
Loss of Situational Awareness
Loss of Situational Awareness is a direct result of:
•Lack of focus
•Lack of clarity
•Inability to manage emotions
Loss or poor situational awareness will lead to serious delays in taking effective action to avoid dangerous situations developing.
Weak Competency and weak leadership will lead to;
•Lack of skill & or knowledge
•Not following procedures
•May take chances
•Reluctant to ask questions
•Not putting into practice what you preach
When people forget or unsure about a process or procedure, information transfer will be flawed and incorrect. This will lead to a situation where decisions may be taken on assumptions
The Model of Dynamic Implementation
Dynamic is a force that stimulates change or progress within a system or process.
Implementation is the process of putting a decision or plan into effect.
