Key Takeaways

Lisa introduces, and invites us to explore an interesting safety conundrum: If absolutes and certainty are necessary conditions for safety, how do we sustain safety or even a sense of it, in a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) world?

Lisa introduces, and invites us to explore an interesting safety conundrum: If absolutes and certainty are necessary conditions for safety, how do we sustain safety or even a sense of it, in a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) world? How do we explain the paradox inherent in our need of challenge and uncertainty (“unsafety”) to draw on and strengthen resilience?*

* Resilience is defined here as the ability to progress, perform, and/or evolve in the presence of unstable and changing circumstances.

Each one-hour session is hosted by an expert or stakeholder in safety performance. And each session invites all attendees to participate, listen, and learn from each other and through conversation and shared experiences. Collectively, we explore the human system’s impact on safety and performance - relationally, psychologically, and socially.


After a brief introduction to the topic and sharing of relevant research, the floor will be open for group conversation. We invite ALL to share their thoughts, and will openly embrace - actually encourage - different perspectives. We really want to hear from all, from those who can share measurable, scientific concepts, those who have knowledge gained from experience, and those who intend to learn and understand more.
