Mark Sykes is a director of Beehive Coaching & Leadership Development Ltd and has over 20 years of experience embedding change in organisations. He is an experienced sports and performance as well as executive coach and facilitator. His perspective can be best summed up by Henry Ford who once observed, ‘whenever you employ a pair of hands you get a free brain thrown in to the bargain. Whether you use that brain to best effect is a function of the leadership and management across the organisation'. This is as relevant to safety culture and behavioural safety as to any other kind of organisational development.
Mark has worked with organisations in the power sector including Magnox, SSE, and GE; in the private sector including McKinsey & Co, John Lewis Partnership, Prism Medical UK, Siemens Medical Diagnostics, GSK, Sodexo Justice Services, GSK, Capita etc; and in the public sector including Gwynedd County Council, Powys Council, MoD, Plymouth University, DEFRA, Countryside Council for Wales etc - developing leadership and management capacity, training coaches and mentors and supporting culture change through organisational development interventions.

Sara Lodge is director of Beehive Coaching & Leadership Development Ltd. Apart from a couple of breaks, one working in marketing and one on the Leadership Fast Track of the West Yorkshire Police, she has been in the field of learning and development since 1985, working in places as diverse as Japan, Africa, Canada, Austria and France. She is passionate about organisational learning and the importance of learning to leadership, and sees action learning, coaching and mentoring as two of the most important elements of developing both. She also sees Beehive's mission of sustainable learning as being directly applicable to the fields of Human Performance and safety culture, as it provides a model of operating experience feedback.
Sara has a wide range of organisational development and coaching experience, having worked with organisations as varied as GE, SSE, Magnox, Marsh (UK) Ltd, Conoco (UK) Ltd, Vodafone (UK) Ltd, ECGD, Hertz (UK) Ltd, Lancashire County Council, Blackpool County Council, the MoD, Powys County Council, DEFRA, Gywnedd County Council, the Metropolitan Police Service, Enron (UK) Ltd, and Lancashire County Council. She is also an experienced coach and consultant supervisor.
She has particular interest in the impact of board behaviours on organisational culture. In 2012 she completed research into emotional dissonance and transference at CEO level, published in '"Leadership as Emotional Labour: 'Management and the Managed Heart'", Routledge.
Sara's most recent work has been in the field of behavioural safety, working with Paul Carter of Bangor University on research into the key interpersonal factors that most impact on safety. This has led to the development of the D2iQ, a new metric measuring those interpersonal factors, and the D2iP Behaviour Change programme which develops the interpersonal factors.

Trust is an attitude. To increase trust and therefore interdependency it is necessary to demonstrate you are worthy of trust by displaying trustworthy behaviours - (ref Beehive/Bangor research &Trustworthiness Elements)
If you demonstrate trustworthiness through the five principles, others are invited to reciprocate and therefore trust and interdependency builds. The five Principles are:
The D2iP b.SAFE Safety Leadership Programme is designed to introduce the five principles of trustworthy behaviour and trustworthy leadership within the organisation.
