What is Your Expertise?

In the reorganization shuffle since the acquisition, I have ended up in a new and unfamiliar role, that being safety guy, attached to operations. Great place to be, right?

If you are a safety engineer, yes. If you are an OD guy, maybe.

While I am bringing my internal consulting skill-set to the role, especially managing client relationships, critical thinking, team building, process improvement, coaching, communicating, workplace learning, and managing change, there is more that the client organization needs that I do not have. Namely, a deep knowledge of a broad range of industry-specific technical and regulatory topics.

A colleague of mine kiddingly poked fun at me the other day, "So, what is your expertise anyway?"

I said, "When you figure it out, let me know, okay?"
