In this episode...
Welcome to our Podcast. It has been a long time coming, and we are so excited that it is finally here.
Our purpose in sharing this podcast is to have a chinwag (conversation) to help people change how they think about safety.
We intend to share experiences, learnings and wisdom that we have gathered from a combined 40 years of experience working in high-hazard industries such as Oil & Gas, Mining, Nuclear, Construction and Transport etc.
Topics we will cover include but are not limited to conversational intelligence, emotional literacy, intercultural intelligence, safety leadership, life offshore, safety culture and psychological safety, working in dynamic teams and whatever else pops up during our conversations.
We hope to challenge your perspectives, potentially solve a nagging problem, share actions that you can implement, and give you at least one aha moment.
So join us weekly as we explore the world of organisational safety culture and more.
During this episode, we begin the conversations with intercultural intelligence and Three Colours of World View that lead nicely into our next three episodes on how to improve your Safety Culture through Intercultural Intelligence.
We hear you ask what is the ‘ Three Colours of Worldview’?
The Three Colors of Worldview Discovery tool was developed to assist people with a deeper understanding of their own and other people’s cultural drivers, motivators and demotivators.
The Three Colours of Worldviews are
- Innocent / Guilt
- Honour / Shame
- Power / Fear.
We shall be exploring these in more detail in a future episode.
Let's enjoy this journey together.
We, humans, are emotional beings, and at the end of each session, our gift to you is an insight into an emotion.
Did you know that we have over 250 emotions? Yet, we only understand or talk about +/- 12. By exploring these, you may be surprised at what you learn.
Karin has been studying Emotional Literacy with Dan Newby, the founder of the School of Emotions and references emotional literacy regularly during her coaching conversations.
Today's Emotional Gem is... URGENCY
- Story: It must be done immediately
- Impulse: (what action does it trigger in us?) To move very rapidly
- Purpose: It helps us react in emergencies
Urgency is the emotion that moves us into action immediately and energizes us to act rapidly. Balancing urgency is important for our well-being too much urgency is exhausting and may lead to burnout. Not enough urgency may cause friction on the team or the project.
How might you balance urgency?
Similar feeling emotion is Fear, to be explored in our next episode.
We use the iPhone app Emote: Mastering Your Emotions to select the Emotional Gem for each episode. (this is a paid-for app)

About the Show
Our purpose in sharing this podcast is to have a chinwag (conversation) to help people change how they think and behave about safety.
We do this by engaging in dialogue and testing the levels of trust and psychological safety, which are core to organisational culture. Making safety part of your DNA so that your people speak up, show up, do right, and become safer every day for yourself, your team, and your business.
We will explore topics related to organisational and safety culture, leadership, the language of risk, emotional literacy, psychological safety, conversational agility, intercultural intelligence, and whatever else pops up during our conversations—sharing our experiences and learnings.
We intend to share nuggets of wisdom that will challenge your perspectives, potentially solve a nagging problem, share actions you can implement, and give you at least one aha moment.
