It seems that every organization has a vision statement. As a speaker, when visiting groups of leaders, I often ask: “Who has a vision statement for their organization?” A flurry of hands usually go up. However, the next question stuns the room: “Who can come up here and recite it for me?” As you can imagine, not many volunteer for that request.

Employees are the most valuable asset in any EMS agency, but many agencies struggle with engaging this asset into a high-performance work team. A special webinar from the Academy of International Mobile Healthcare Integration (AIMHI) and FirstWatch will look at “Achieving High-Value People.”
