Forest safety brain trainer for Tree fallers

Forest safety brain trainer for Tree fallers - Switchback’s Steven Falk joins International Safety Conference

The Forest Industry Engineering Association (FIEA) is pleased to announce that forestry teamwork expert Steven Falk from British Columbia, Canada has been confirmed as a keynote speaker for it’s flagship forest safety conference series March 2015. The summit runs at Rotorua’s Distinction Hotel on 3-4th March and Bayview Eden Hotel in Melbourne on 10-11th March.

Steven Falk’s team of trainers at Switchback has worked with manual tree fallers in British Columbia for many years. He reports, “Our feedback shows that 96% of participants thank us for the training/coaching and express a desire for their families to be able to participate in further Switchback training.”

Switchback’s secret strength is its commitment to team. Steven has had the privilege to give leadership to this growing innovative team since 2010. Previous to Switchback, Steve operated a successful counselling / consulting private practice on Vancouver Island, Canada for 21 years.

Falk explains how they work with tree fallers, “We believe people can change and that true, sustainable success is found in the power of team. Switchback Foundation leads participants through the fascinating process of understanding how our stored memories form our core values and how our core values direct our thoughts which ultimately produce the actions by which we are judged.”

“...Switchback is about how teams come together rather than fall apart when they’re under pressure.”

On session content he explains, “Gaining a new level of understanding and control over this process is transformational. It builds mental toughness, capacity, resilience, responders rather than reactors and teams that come together rather than fall apart when under pressure. Our sessions are filled with teaching, training, break out groups and participant participation. It is uniquely designed so it can be taken once or experienced several times until the historical challenges are overcome, current problems are resolved and measurable success is firmly established.”
