One of the most important realizations we as safety leaders must come to realize; our jobs require us to be in uncomfortable situations...often. If you're struggling with this, be encouraged that you're certainly not alone! If you're avoiding these scenarios, I'm challenging you that you're likely missing the most important moments as a leader and not protecting your teammates as well as you could. Do uncomfortable things and embrace the awkward. Just don't forget to do it with grace and humility.
