Ray Fisher Social

This interactive session from Ray of Fisher Improvement Technologies touched on the most advanced science-based information and methods related to HOP and the importance of understanding personality tendencies when managing risk.
Different people with different personality tendencies see and manage risk differently. This session introduced attendees to the concepts of how to understand the differences at all levels of the organization to better manage risk and reduce incidents. Attendees were encouraged to download the “E-Colors” App onto their mobile phone before the session and take the Personality Diversity Indicator (PDI) to determine their personality tendencies so that they could get the most out of the workshop.
