The US Forest Service faced a crisis of trust that was undermining communications and information flow. The result was an abysmal accident rate. This talk will explore field initiatives and leadership actions that began to change the organization’s approach to learning. Three key pillars will be introduced: The leadership safety journey, field initiatives to change the way the organization responded to accidents and incidents, and some of the research that underpinned the changes that took place.

About the Presenter:
Ivan is an international speaker and consultant focused on Risk, Safety, Aviation, Wildland Firefighting and Human & Organizational Performance (HOP).
His ability to integrate academic research with real world application comes from his varied life experiences, which culminated in his promotion to the position of Director of the Office of Innovation and Organizational Learning for the U.S. Forest Service.

Ivan represented the Forest Service at the Obama Wight House, where he presented Learning Review and HOP concepts during a forum on wildfire firefighter safety.
