Step 6. Read and review your report. Please note, this report can be used in two ways, it is firstly a self assessment to help you understand how effective your leadership practices are for creating a values based commitment to working safely. Secondly, it is a development tool that you can use to guide you in identifying where you might need to develop your leadership skills and practices.
The report is made up of 4 sections. These are:
- Belief (Shared Meaning)
- Mindset (our Focus)
Step 7. On page 4 of the report there is space for you to enter your scores for these 4 sections. For each section add up your scores and divide by the number of questions in that section to get your score for that section.
Step 8. Add the scores for the 4 sections and divide by 4 to get your total score for your Safety Leadership Practices Self Assessment. (See example below)
* Please note that the Coach’s Score column is only used in the paid user version of the 4D Safety App.
Step 9. The 10 point scale and what the scores mean are described in the table at the end of the report. A score below 8 indicates an opportunity for development.
Step 10. The purpose of this self-assessment is to help all leaders provide great safety leadership i.e. an overall score of 8 or higher. In addition, the score for each question should be an 8 or higher (in the green). You can use the individual questions to understand your specific development needs.
