10th Edition - Business Imperatives

The focus of the Second 2017 issue of the HPA Journal is: Business Imperatives

Man in the Arena is an excerpt from the speech, “Citizenship in aRepublic,” delivered by US President Theodore Roosevelt at the Sorbonne in Paris, France on April 23, 1910. It sets the tone for this edition of the Journal. "The time has come to turn the page on our make-things-better efforts by ‘thinking globally’; by taking a Next-Generation approach. It’s time to spend ourselves in this worthy cause. Those who do, and do so with great devotion, will be forth coming heroes.

Their organizations will benefit mightily. Proper focus on human performance as the CORE of all PI is where it all begins. Doing so, while following a simple yet systematic pathway, brings the four Business Imperatives together- Reliability, Efficiency, Productivity, and Safety (REPS).Understanding this, and proceeding accordingly to develop a one team modus operandi in your organization is the key to your future (and that of your organization).

8th Edition - Leveling Up

The focus of the Fall 2016 issue of the HPA Journal is: Leveling Up

This issue is all about taking a look at old ways of thinking and doing, to 'leveling up' to new paradigms, new perspectives, and more effective ways of taking action and influencing others.

7th Edition - Coaching Vs. Mentoring

The focus of the Summer 2016 issue of the HPA Journal is: Coaching Vs. Mentoring

6th Edition - Moving At The Speed Of Culture

The focus of the Winter 2016 issue of the HPA Journal is: Moving At The Speed Of Culture

None of us can afford to simply stand still in our jobs or in our lives. Our culture is speeding by too quickly for a pause in movement. Managing at the speed of culture can be even more intimidating. That’s what this issue is all about- Speed of Culture. The world is moving so fast, that to simply maintain ‘status-quo’ is no longer good enough, interesting enough, or exciting enough. In fact, in business (and in life) stasis is essentially- death.

From being subject to a safety bureaucracy to thinking different and understanding ‘melted cheese’, this issue of the HPA Journal addresses the concept of “safety culture”-from what NOT to do, to how to focus on human performance to make a true and lasting (next-level) difference.

3rd Edition - Culture Change: Busting the Myths

The focus of the Spring 2015 issue of the HPA Journal is: CULTURE CHANGE

“Culture eats strategy for breakfast, ‘operational excellence’ for lunch, and everything else for dinner.” Peter Drucker’s words have never been more pertinent than they are today. Amidst a storm of regulation, economic challenge, and ‘the great shift change’, culture is truly what’s driving your ship. It’s what will ultimately determine your future.

In this issue of the HPA Journal, we bust a couple of myths about ‘culture change’ with viewpoints from thought leaders Leandro Herrero, Brain Kight, and Tim Autrey, insights from Senior Leader, Dr. Jeremy Welland, and a ‘frontline’ perspective from the ‘Old Safety Codger’, Andy Euthon.

Were you aware that only 71 of the original ‘Fortune 500’ companies even still exist? Pay attention- if you don’t manage your culture, your culture will manage you.

An interview with Gary Mechler offers a senior leader perspective on the importance of relationships, integrity, and the need for courage.

1st Edition - Accountability Deconstructed

The focus of the FALL 2014 issue of the HPA Journal is: ACCOUNTABILITY

BUT... this is NOT your mother's (or your father's) version of the "A Word".  This is ACCOUNTABILITY DECONSTRUCTED.

Leading off with Just Discipline by Executive Mentor and HPA Advisor, Mike Blevins, this issue deconstructs the concept of "accountability" and how it truly works.

The concepts are then brought back together into a proactive approach to accountability that offers actionable insights that you can put to use immediately within your organization.​
