Three Problems You Face
If you want innovative, practical methods to improve reliability and safety, you have a few options:
You can spend years reading books and articles, listening to podcasts, and attending conferences. The problem? Without expert guidance and support, it's easy for you to get lost, burn out, & give up.
2) Partner with an Advisor
Your company can hire an Advisor to teach and guide hundreds of people in your company. The problem? It requires lots of approvals and scheduling. What if only a few people want skills & guidance?
3) Buy a Package
Prepackaged programs look great on paper, and are often well-marketed. The problem? They're never really "yours." They're tough to customize to your unique needs and culture. And they're expensive.
If you don't like any of these options, and believe there should be a better option, then you're not alone.
"I’ve watched so many people (including myself) perform better and more safely in our work, and in turn become better coaches to our colleagues on human performance and safety because of Jake’s input.”
Michael Legatt, Ph.D., CEO and Founder at ResilientGrid
An Open-Enrollment Course That Works
Your people are busy. So, I summarize hundreds of pages of research saving you years of time. Your people get practical content they can apply immediately.
Learning new ideas is easy. Putting them into practice is hard. So, in each week, you'll get plenty of feedback & guidance to maximize impact to your everyday work.
One-and-done trainings are a sprint. Improving culture is a marathon. We spread sessions out over several weeks. Why? So you get reinforcement on core ideas, and enough "soak time" to experiment, adjust, iterate, and sustain momentum that drives real world change.
“Jake’s knowledge of human performance and the ability to break it down to easily understandable pieces was very beneficial to me as I was new to the HP world at that time. His facilitation style and “storytelling” approach is very valuable and he has a knack of drawing people in.”
Laura Redenshek, Director, Safety & Human Performance, First Energy Utilities
How It Works
1) Register & check your calendar
Live classes are engaging. Recorded content is convenient.
You'll get the best of both worlds.
Enrollment closes on Monday, September 7th.
2) Join us live and / or watch the videos
Participate in a new two-hour virtual workshop (via Zoom) each week. Scheduling issues? No problem. We record all workshops. You can binge-watch all the videos anytime until a month after the course ends.
3) Do the step-by-step exercises and get feedback
Use the worksheets to put your new skills to work immediately. Show me your draft written deliverables and toughest written questions each week to get customized feedback unique to you.
4) Benefit from the Wisdom of Crowds
Enjoy lifetime access to our private LinkedIn group. Ask questions, share successes, collect resources, and get group input on any question, 24 / 7.
5) See your results and confidence grow
Unlike "one-and-done" trainings, this course gives you plenty of reinforcement and "soak time" to experiment, iterate, and build up real momentum. If unsatisfied, you can get a 100% refund up until the start of workshop #4.

Respect & Expertise
I respect how errors in high-hazard workplaces can instantly change careers, reputations, and lives.
I've served on reliability-driven teams as a firefighter, an EMT, a military paratrooper, and as the Human Performance Lead for 3,600 experts in a large electric utility.
I've felt frustrated, perplexed, even angry at errors that seem 100% preventable... in hindsight. And I've made plenty of errors myself.
So, over the past decade, I've assembled a set of practical strategies, skills and models that I wish someone had shared with me years ago.
I love sharing these ideas with leaders and technical experts in high-hazard industries so everyone can be safer, more reliable and more engaged in the work they do everyday.
