Aubrey Daniels, Ph.D.
Aubrey Daniels International
Think of the luckiest day of your life. No doubt many of you may have thought of it as the day you won a million dollars in the lottery, the day you met your spouse or the day when some other special person helped you. Not to belittle special people in your life, I will suggest in this talk that they probably were not involved in the luckiest decision of your life.
Some of you not realizing it as important as I think is will probably squander it away much as many lottery winners do. As they say, “easy come; easy go.” Those who realize the decision as important and the value of the decision they have been given will be able to make positive life changing differences in many people throughout your work life that include safety but go far beyond it.
“People are the most important element of every organization. With the complex challenges facing American business leaders today, the science of human behavior cannot be ignored. Rather, it must be the starting place for every decision we make, every new technology we apply, and every initiative we employ to bring out the best in people.”
Aubrey Daniels, a thought leader and internationally recognized expert on management, leadership, safety and workplace issues, is considered an authority on human behavior in the workplace. As founder and chairman of his consulting firm, Aubrey Daniels International (ADI), he and his staff help organizations employ the timeless principles of behavioral science to re-energize the workplace, optimize performance and achieve lasting results.
Daniels actively blogs about performance systems, workplace safety and management issues, is frequently interviewed for major media outlets, and recently penned a regular guest blog for Talent Management Magazine.
In addition to being a highly sought after keynote speaker at major association, conference and educational events, Daniels is the author of six best-selling books including: Bringing out the Best in People: How to Apply the Astonishing Power of Positive Reinforcement, Measure of a Leader, Oops! 13 Management Practices that Waste Time and Money (and what to do instead), and Safe by Accident? His books have been translated into Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Spanish and French and have been licensed in China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Romania and Saudi Arabia.
Daniels received his doctorate from the University of Florida, where he also earned his masters degree and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. He received his undergraduate degree in psychology from Furman University. Daniels has been honored by both Furman University and the College of Health Professions at the University of Florida as Alumnus of the Year.
