A foundational theory for high performance in the Forest Service includes the importance of stress-recovery cycles, coaching & mentoring, and comprehensive wellbeing. Human Factors & Risk Management (HFRM) has been benchmarking programs being offered in other organizations, sending employees to assess existing training, and developing a proposal for the National Leadership Team (NLT).
