RescueDigest Resources: Change Management in Emergency Services
Leading change from the top down or the bottom up can be one of the most difficult things that we can do in emergency services. Most of us would rather get toned out to the “Big One” than present a new idea to our group. Using examples from multinational corporations that have embraced change to small groups that have made changes to affect millions, these resources will show you the keys to turning the tide and getting people to champion your cause rather than fight it.
