The Measure of a Leader

The true measure of an EMS leader is how they treat the weakest member of their team.

Some EMS supervisors will be given eight or ten EMTs and paramedics to look after and one, maybe two will be deficient.

One or two will lag behind the others in skills or performance.

One or two will lack the knowledge or the motivation.

And some leaders will look at their team and say, this one…these two, they need to be weeded out.

And some leaders will look at their team and say, this one…these two, they really need my support.
