EHS professionals are often tasked with a great deal of responsibility - ensure global compliance, drive culture change, reduce company-wide resource use, to just give a few examples - but often don't have the authority to demand change or action. In the absence of authoritative power, effective leaders must use other tools to get results. With more than 25 years of HR experience and as the owner of the global EHS Talent Pipeline for Caterpillar, Dodie Gomer will give us a fresh perspective on how EHS executives can lead without authority and be successful influencers. She will share six powerful leadership and influence tools and demonstrate how to apply them to the world of EHS leadership.
