Thanks, I love this topic!  I think a manager's job is to make it as safe and as sensible as possible for subordinates to do their jobs -- and do the necessary documentation.  Some of the best managers I have ever known have been such good servants, a lot of their coworkers didn't realize half of what they did for a living.  I think a leader is a planner that people naturally follow.  I think some leaders are good managers, and some managers are good leaders (but it ain't necessarily so).  And I think it's essential for a person in either role to honestly like EMTs (a lot), like what they do, and like the stuff they care about.

Hi all! There is a new association in California representing EMS professionals. Even if you are not an EMD, EMR, EMT, AEMT or Paramedic in California, please "Like" this page to support us!  CAAEMT Facebook Page


The mission of the California Association of Emergency Medical Technicians is to serve the prehospital EMS care providers of California by presenting networking opportunities, offer continuing education, work with CAAEMT partners to give discounts on services and products, and represent its membership during discussions that will readily affect their practice and protocols.

I worked as an EMS leader in FDNY EMS for many years and would like to contribute to this forum.

I think that the people who work for you will tell you whether you're leading them or managing them. I was recently rated in a 360 eval and I can tell you that my perception of my "leadership" was somewhat, although not totally different, from that of my direct reports. What I've taken away from my own experience in this type of evalutation process is that your direct reports need to feel that they are contributing in a meaningful way to progress or change within your department and that they need to know that you have the clout to move some of their insights and innovation forward. There is a lot of talent out there. If any of you, Will, have worked for me and if I've never said thank you, let me say in a very public forum now, thank you. I think that many of us would benefit from being evaluated from the bottom up. What do the rest of you think?

Check out the question I've posted at http://connect.jems.com/profiles/blogs/the-ems-labor-movement-or.

I'd be interested in your thoughts!

Thanks Skip!

It's interesting...I took the whole audio "TAPE" series and burned it digitally to mp3 format on my computer.....only to discover the site had "most" of them already in that format. I have a rare commute but listen to them and amd starting to catch up on the EMS Garage podcasts, or my UMBC Lectures.
