Decision making as a team or crew can be difficult when personality differences get involved. How the team handles those differences can be a direct reflection of the risk-taking and safety culture in place at their station or base, which is not always the culture desired by leadership. 

This workshop will help attendees discover their personality type and how it affects team decision making. Participants will learn how current research is looking at risk tolerance in Air Medical Crews, EMS professionals, Police, Fire and other first responders and how teams can utilize this information to promote a safety culture. New data and a personal perspective will help attendees understand why crew / team decisions can fail at the wrong time despite training and safety awareness programs and how teams can overcome this risk. 

This workshop is ideal for:

  • Critical care response teams
  • EMS professionals
  • Fire and Police Chiefs / Leads
  • Safety representatives
