In an interview, David Frances, Ph.D., VP of training and development for Quadrant Health Strategies Inc, talked about his inspiration to write his book, This Is a Safety Moment. According to Frances, for more than 30 years he has been involved with work organizations as an employee assistance program provider, consultant, trainer and executive coach. The book was a natural outgrowth of this training. It enables him to expand on the content in a way that he can't in a typical hour-and-a-half training program. Through feedback he has received about the book and from audiences, he has learned that employees are very receptive to this material for reasons beyond the workplace. They see that these techniques can be equally effective for giving feedback at home, as well as at work.
