    Anonymously Submit Your Near Miss Example
    Employees are often trained to work "safely" but are not trained to identify near misses or made aware of the positive impact near miss reporting can have to ensure employees are engaged in their operations. NACD members have confidentially submitted their Near Miss Examples for the purpose of providing lessons learned for an improved chemical industry. Help us provide a safer and more secure environment for all — anonymously participate by clicking here and submitting the Near Miss Incident Analysis form.

    Reminder: Call for NACD Committee Volunteers
    Our committee members perform a unique role as they deliberate over and select strategies to achieve NACD's mission. They shape collective actions and identify opportunities to mobilize resources. They launch and sustain programs, drive active participation from the membership, and expand the recognition of the association and its membership. Without them, NACD can't achieve its mission to enhance and communicate the professionalism and stewardship of the chemical distribution industry. Please consider volunteering your time and experience to one of NACD's committees in 2016 and send your interest to Lucinda Schofer at lschofer@nacd.com no later than Friday, Oct. 30.

    U.S. News & World Report
    Workdays have become longer than they used to be. Time in the office may extend well into the evening, or you likely bring work home to finish after the kids go to bed. Technology is partly to blame for the ability to do work after the daily grind is over, which is something you need to fight against personally. But how can you make your workday and work environment more efficient to avoid having a lot of work to do in the evening hours?

    Leadership Fortitude Starts with Honest Feedback
    By Hank Boyer
    Fortitude usually shows up high on the list of attributes of a great leader. Great leaders best display fortitude not by taking bold risks and implementing aggressive programs, but by the honesty with which they deliver feedback to their staffers. It takes great fortitude to look someone in the eye and respectfully deliver the feedback he or she needs to hear, especially when that feedback means addressing performance shortcomings in a staffer's overall performance.

    How Managers Can See the Future More Clearly
    Harvard Business Review
    Management is a lens. It’s the best way yet invented to focus the organization’s capital, human, and time resources toward the goals of the business. Many have observed that companies can have admirable goals; but, if poorly managed, success proves elusive. Suppose the management lens was smeared, even opaque. In this case, management could easily misapply resources. Or suppose the lens was a mirror looking only at past ways to deploy resources. There are signs that this is very much today’s state of management, as managers face the digitization of business. Too many surveys show that managers are either confused about what to do or uncertain of how to change their priorities.
