What Our Clients Need Most
Are you struggling with?
EMS needs a new kind of leadership
Not leadership based on having a particular set of qualities or characteristics. Not leadership based on authority. EMS needs the kind of leadership that calls forth the natural creativity and enthusiasm of human beings; the kind of leadership that encourages participation and learning; the kind of leadership where people can be the best they can be and create a new future free from the constraints of the past.
There are many misconceptions as to why EMS is in the state it’s in. We have heard all types of reasons and explanations such as low pay, EMS is a stepping stone to other careers, entitlement of the younger generations, people don’t have time to volunteer anymore. We could go on and on.
The fact is, it’s the culture of an organization that attracts or repels people. As organizational change expert Peter Drucker said, “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” You can have the best strategies and take all sorts of actions; however if you have a terrible culture, your best efforts will fail.
AND take a guess as to what the # 1 influencer of an organization's culture is?
Yup, the leadership of the organization. That is extremely good news. It means it is within your power as a leader to transform the culture you have into the culture you most want - one that attracts and retains high performing, engaged personnel.
It’s within your power to create and maintain the culture and organization you most desire.
When we discovered this we got super excited because we knew we could develop programs to help leaders to transform their culture and bring a bold new future into reality that would not have been otherwise created.
Consider the results you have in your organization are outcomes of leadership, yours and your predecessors. To change those results it will require you to reexamine and call into question the ways of being and doing you currently have as well a willingness to to recreate who you are as a leader.
What Does Turnover Cost You Now?
We know based on the American Ambulance Association (AAA)'s annual Ambulance Industry Employee Turnover Study that the direct costs of turnover (losing people) cost $9,100 per person lost! That's not to mention the indirect costs to your organization's budget and impact on the leadership team.
When leaders are not focused on filling the schedule, onboarding new people, and losing people who were contributing members of your team -- what else would be possible?
