keynote Session 9: Safety, in Context: The Dual Face of Resilience
In light of recent and significant events that have ushered in incredible uncertainty - most notably Covid-19 and its broad-reaching impacts – humans and organizations alike are confronted with the reality that not all events can be anticipated or controlled in a linear fashion (e.g., technological resilience). Within a technological system, the primary paradigm applied within most organizations and certainly highly regulatory ones where order is the business of the day, uncertainty is anathema. In contrast, however, within an ecological system where living organisms survive and thrive, uncertainty actually stimulates progress and change. Here, humans and other eco-systems adapt in the face of the unknown, creating success paths in a non-linear manner (e.g., ecological resilience). In this brief presentation, Dr. Lande distinguishes between these two systems, their distinctly different approaches to realizing safety and performing resiliently, and how both must be explicitly considered and nurtured within the organization if we are to comprehensive approach safety and optimize performance.
Dr. Lande builds a compelling case for the explicit application of a dual-system paradigm within the organization. She purports that a safety and performance gestalt is realized when organizations effectively link mental/emotional well-being, effectively with operational/financial well-being.
