Army Values: Can They Work in EMS?-Andy Gienapp
Many people have misconceptions about how the Army develops leaders and values as an organization. On many occasions, EMS leaders allow these misconceptions to enter EMS, and rather than becoming a value-based organization, the misconceptions feed a toxic culture. This session debunks some of the myths surrounding army leadership, highlights the organizational values of the army and how the army promotes them, and demonstrates how EMS organizations can incorporate the army’s (or other) values as part of their culture. The material draws heavily on the presenter’s nearly 30-year dual careers in the army and EMS.
