It has been a season since I’ve written to all of you and it’s time to get back at it. Much has changed over the past year in the medical transport industry—release of the 2014 FAA HEMS Final Rule and changes in states’ acknowledgement of new options for accreditation services for medical transport programs. As important, new advances have been occurring with NAAMTA also — the uniting of the IAAA with the NAAMTA flag which is now taking NAAMTA into the international market, the addition of 4 new accredited transport programs with several other new programs in progress (not to mention the renewal of all current alliance members), and the explosive growth of the NAAMTA Learning Center. The bottom line…NAAMTA is having a tremendous impact on the medical transport industry.
It is the mission of NAAMTA to “be the example to the medical transport industry,” to “embrace a higher standard” and to “inspire people to be better.” As NAAMTA has traveled the globe (literally) talking with transport programs, it is obvious that this kind of industry leadership is sorely desired. In keeping with NAAMTA’s mission of leadership, I wanted to help us understand the bigger picture by sharing some principles on leadership.
Lesson 1: Being responsible sometimes means pissing people off.
2) Once the information is in the 40-70 range, go with your gut.
Don’t take action if you have only enough information to give you less than a 40 percent chance of being right, but don’t wait until you have enough facts to be 100 percent sure, because by then it is almost always too late. His instinct is right. Today, excessive delays in the name of information-gathering breeds “analysis paralysis.” Procrastination in the name of reducing risk actually increases risk.
