In our business we train staff to assess 911 calls quickly and effectively and get to the patient’s side as quickly as possible. We have nearly 4,000 front line staff – most of them are proud, independent problem solvers that save lives every day. But our business model is not as effective or innovative as it needs to be. We need to change - to evolve a 40-year old model of providing emergency services.
My challenge: to transform how we deliver services to be more innovative, effective and sustainable in the face of growing demand and an aging population.To do this, and engage our front line staff in a significant shift in culture, requires more than leadership and vision.
It requires building a dream team to help me and creating the necessary coalitions inside and outside the organization to develop powerful alliances in support of a common goal.
