"Sunlight is the best disinfectant." - William O. Douglas
As many Americans do, I remember September 11, 2001 with great clarity, as if the day lasted forever in agony. At the time I was the ER leader, and responsible for disaster management at my community hospital. Our CEO had been called upon to provide staff and supplies to leave Northern Michigan and report to Giants stadium in New York City. We were to assist our comrades in NYC in the event that the hospitals and EMS providers there were overcome. We spent that day quickly assembling a team, and a school bus departed our town that afternoon. Several of my EMS providers never hesitated to provide their expertise, and leave their loved ones to aid our country and their fallen comrades.
As your organization starts this new year with goals that need to be accomplished, there are many key tactics for goal setting and execution that will help you win the race...versus crash and burn.
