During more than 20 years of implementing supervisor leadership training, the authors have identified 15 leadership skills that improve safety performance in the workplace. The top five skills for motivating a group toward a common goal are:

  1. Giving positive recognition.

  2. Building teams.

  3. Setting team goals.

  4. Keeping score publicly.

  5. Positioning supervisors as trainers.

In Part I (Feb. 2012, pp. 59–63), the authors addressed two of those skills: giving positive recognition and team building. Part II covers the remaining three skills---team goal setting, public scorekeeping and the supervisor as trainer---discusses skills certification and highlights a successful implementation.
