Frontline Fundamentals - It’s Your Ship with David McPeak CUSP

Frontline Fundamentals - It’s Your Ship with David McPeak CUSP

September 2, 2022

Understanding. That’s a one-word summary of why you should read this book and what you will learn from it. Understanding yourself first and then understanding others. Understanding what others expect from you and your team and understanding situations and the impacts of your decisions. Finally, my favorite line from the book, understanding the more control you give up, the more command you get. It’s your ship!

Frontline Fundamentals - The Success Principles, CUSP

Topics Covered:

Extreme Ownership

Normalization of Deviation

Us Versus Them Mentalities

 

Have you ever read a book and ended up with so many sticky notes as placeholders, highlights and margin notes it was difficult to read again? This is one of those books for me. I was expecting a bunch of cool SEAL stories, which I got. What I wasn’t expecting and was thrilled to see is how insightful and practical the book is for individuals and organizations. In this presentation we'll establish what Extreme Ownership means and how we can apply it to our leadership and safety. Following that, we’ll use exerts from the book to discuss specific challenges we face every day and principles that will help us overcome those challenges. As the authors say, “The principles are simple, but not easy. Taking ownership for mistakes and failures is hard. But doing so is key to learning, to developing solutions, and, ultimately, to victory.”

Frontline Fundamentals - The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People with David McPeak, CUSP

Frontline Fundamentals - The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People with David McPeak, CUSP

Most people are familiar with the title “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” but they may not be aware of the book’s subtitle: “Powerful Lessons in Personal Change.” That’s why I am highlighting this book first in this series of articles – because, as Covey said, “If I want to change my situation, I have to focus on the one thing I can control – myself.”

This establishes a theme that will continue throughout each of the books I have chosen for this series. Successful and effective people are accountable and responsible to and for themselves and their teams. And perhaps most importantly, they understand how to use the gap between a stimulus or event and their response with a focus on their desired outcome in decision making.

Frontline Fundamentals - Safety Axioms with David McPeak, CUSP

Too often we focus so much on the nuts and bolts of safety (e.g., grounding procedures, Ohm’s law, work methods for a pole-top rescue) that we lose sight of the big picture. There’s no doubt the nuts and bolts are important, but they lose value if we don’t understand and apply the following safety axioms: Safety must be led, Culture drives behavior, people are not how we wish they were, Replace common sense with common knowledge, Measure what you want, Know the power of why and what, Engage in safety by design and defense in depth, Never need protective equipment including PPE, and Make everything plural.

Frontline Fundamentals - Common Sense with David McPeak, CUSP

How did you learn the stove was hot? Common sense tells us we have an innate awareness of hazards and yet I’m guessing most of us touched it and learned it was hot. What about brushing your teeth? Ever hurt yourself doing that? When was the last time you locked your keys in your vehicle or slipped on ice? Have you ever run into a stationary object while driving? Common sense would tell us these things should never happen and yet they do.

Frontline Fundamentals - Hazards Do Not Discriminate with David McPeak, CUSP

Hazards do not discriminate nor should we. If you have seen Game of Thrones, you understand how infighting among groups and teams can become so severe, they lose sight of their real enemy. Don’t let that be true with your team and hazards. Learn and apply the importance of teamwork in hazard identification and control to keep you and your team safe.
