This article provides the latest update about the Human Performance Track.

Purpose of the Human Performance Track

The Human Performance Track is focused on some of the most important current topics that can help you improve human performance. To pick just the right topics we asked for advice from the TapRooT® Advisory Board and our TapRooT® Instructors. the topics chosen are listed below.

Human Performance Track Topics and Speakers

Michelle Wishon – If we could hire better people…

The topics and speakers in the Human Performance Track include:

  • Michelle Wishon – If we could only hire better people these incidents wouldn’t happen (Blaming people for incidents instead of finding root causes)
  • Stephanie Tipton – Dazed & Confused (Influence of drugs on human performance and drug testing)
  • Carl Dixon – Beyond COVID – Now what? (Recovering from a major negative impact)
  • Tim Diggs – Pre-Job Risk Analysis & Pre-Job Planning Workshop (Using pre-job planning and risk assessment to improve human performance)
  • Lori Frederic (The Movement Ninja) – The Proper Care & Feeding of Your Lower Back Pain (Ergonomic advice on defeating back injuries and pain)
  • Jeff Gleason, Jason Dalen, and Corey Wald – TapRooT® Investigations and Lessons Learned (Three examples of investigations that included human performance problems and the lessons that were learned)
  • Barb Carr – The psychology behind root cause analysis interviewing (Barb shares why we teach TapRooT® 15 step interviewing method)
  • Anne Roberts – Recovering from and preventing burnout (It can happen to us all, we work so hard that we break. Don’t burn out. Learn to pace yourself and accomplish more.)

That’s a great list of topics that will help you improve human performance.

Which of these Keynote Speakers will be the most applicable to the Human Performance Track? The accident that Ken Futch will describe? The failure of senior leadership that Vice Admiral Joseph Aucoin will present? The discussion of senior leadership’s needs from root cause analyses? Or the motivation provided by Inky and Kirstie? You will have to decide after you see all five presentations.

Summit – Face-to-Face or a Virtual Option

2022 Global TapRooT® Summit
May 2-6 – Knoxville, TN

We had planned to have a regular face-to-face Summit this year. But we’ve had several people from continents outside North America tell us that their company still won’t allow travel because of COVID. And they begged us to let them attend virtually. Therefore, we decided that we will have a face-to-face Summit with a virtual option for those that face travel restrictions.

Choosing in-person or virtual attendance is easy when you register for the Summit.

The picture above shows the first registration page. Just click the “in person” or the “virtual” checkbox and you’ve made your choice.
