Sustainable Safety Excellence
Create clarity, confidence, and engagement in your Safety Vision® across all levels of your organization
“Patrick did a great job invigorating our organization with his inspirational story and message regarding safety and how it relates to our own safety culture.
I highly recommend bringing Patrick in to speak to your people as his candor is honest, courageous and hits the mark.”
— Doug Compton, Packaging Development Leader, Owens Corning
“We asked Patrick to speak at our Plant Managers conference in fall of 2020. The topic was ‘Resilient Leadership in Turbulent Times.’ We had to settle for a virtual conference due to the pandemic. I was nervous and concerned that a two-hour Team meeting just wasn’t going to cut it. Boy was wrong. Patrick did a fantastic job adeptly instigating dialogue and participation. His message resonated with our audience of nearly 200 managers. He gave us practical tips on how to lead our employees during this pandemic and how we can use these tools to manage other common problems in the workplace.
He effectively drew parallels with successes and failures throughout his military career and civilian life. You nailed it, Patrick – thanks!”
— Jim McConville, Division Director, North American Energy Services
“Patrick Nelson spoke to our financial services firm, Empire Wealth Strategies, on the topic of “Investing in Yourself.” He shared his extraordinary story of challenge, sacrifice, and success while educating our agency on ways to improve and succeed in leadership.
Our team was deeply moved by Patrick’s personal story of taking failure as an opportunity to learn and grow, and we highly recommend his services to organizations seeking an informative, motivational event for their team.”
— Gillian Mulhere, Director of Marketing, Empire Wealth Strategies
As I work with organizations throughout the country, I consistently see the front-line employees who don’t feel inspired about their work. As a result, employees often end up doing the bare minimum regarding safety and don’t take full ownership of their tasks. Often, safety meetings are uninspiring and people are not engaged.
One company I worked for experienced a 57% decrease in incidence, which saved them money, but the biggest joy was when a manager told me, “you’ve saved lives here.”
The ‘how’ lies in using stories to connect with your frontline and help them draft their own personal safety mission statement for their job. After our meetings, they not only know how to work safer, they become advocates of a safer workplace.
Two days after 9/11, I dropped out of college and joined the Army as a paratrooper. I served for nearly 7 years with 3 combat deployments. My military awards include the Bronze Star Medal and the Purple Heart Medal. These experiences have shaped my calling in the areas of safety leadership, overcoming adversity & effective communication.
Today, I help leaders and their frontlines in Fortune 500 and other organizations radically decrease their on-the-job incidents. In doing so, I also help you build a culture of safety ownership and an inspired workforce that distinguishes your company.
We make this happen in three ways.
We inspire your employees by teaching them to tap into their intrinsic motivators. This starts by modeling how to share a personal story and invite others to share their stories.
Once people feel seen and heard, we ignite leadership through personal development. This creates front-line leaders who take ownership whether they have a title or not.
Finally, we invest in the front-line leaders who emerge to fuel new growth and team engagement. This creates bottom-up leadership.
