From Error Reduction to Performance Enhancement
The story behind getting the critical error reduction techniques to high-performance athletes.
Whether at work or at the highest level of competitive sport, an error can have devastating consequences. Nobody knows this better than Mike Shaw. His rise, fall and return is truly inspiring from a human resilience perspective. But so is the story of safety that emerged.
In terms of workplace safety, we can learn a lot about human performance from world-class athletes like getting into flow state doing work at the highest level of competence. But in terms of preventing injury-causing errors, even the world’s best athletes can learn a thing or two from safety.
Mike and Larry have been collaborating during this long journey of reducing errors and enhancing performance, so you won’t want to miss this incredible conversation on Larry Wilson Live.
Mike Shaw’s interest in safety peaked after recovering from a traumatic skiing accident in 2013 in which he became paralyzed from the neck down. His unbelievable recovery provides him with a unique perspective on human performance and led him to co-founding HeadStartPro.
Mike is the author of Never Part of the Plan: A story of Courage Resilience Gratitude. His experience includes coaching, human factors training and injury prevention.
Mike is an invigorating speaker, whether he’s at a workshop, in the classroom, or delivering a talk. He has also shared his story in a TEDx Talk called Grief Happens.
