A safety standdown changed everything.

The oilwell drilling company had organized a standdown at a rural community center miles from nowhere, for their area oil rig employees. I was their guest speaker.

While the management team awaited the arrival of buses of employees, they lamented the loss of a rig manager who, 90 days previous, quit and walked across the street to a competing company.

Management was angry and openly showed it.


The safety manager approached me and asked, “are you understanding the discussion?”

“Seems like you lost a rig manager 3 months ago,” I replied. “What’s the big deal?”

The safety manager said, “we didn’t just lose the rig boss. Over the last 3 months, all ten of his crew have quit and followed him to the competition.”

“You mean the whole crew quit your company to follow their old boss?” I asked and he nodded. “Damn, we need to create more supervisors like that!”

That started the journey to what is now KevBurns Learning.

Great teams start with great supervisors.

When the loss of one supervisor can make a whole senior management team take notice, you cannot deny the impact of a great supervisor on an organization's performance, production, and safety. 

What kind of supervisor creates such loyalty, trust, and respect?

What is it that they do that others don't?
