Ambassador – The safety pro at work

Business cards are an interesting and strange part of the global culture.  In the Far East business cards are carefully transferred from one person to another and likewise carefully analyzed to gain insight into the person before any business conversation begins.  In the West the business card is often tossed haphazardly onto a desk or table, then summarily dismissed as a business conversation gets into full swing.  I imagine many of us have business card collections that have hundreds of names, associated titles, pictures, languages and logos that we have collected over the years.

Are there any that attract your attention other than those with which you’ve developed a strong relationship? I have one that stood out to me; its title is simply “Ambassador.” And that brings to mind what an ambassador is:
·         A person who acts as a representative or promoter of a specified activity
·         An important person who carefully and professionally represents their employer organization
·         An individual who develops strong relationships with their organization’s personnel
·         An individual who develops strong relationships with important people outside their organization; those people who can make a difference in improving the ambassador’s organization
·         A person who tries to improve another organization’s performance
I am sure you can add a few more characteristics of a good ambassador.  That said how can we in the safety profession be good ambassadors to the people of the world around us?
