There is no organisation that is bulletproof from crisis and incidents. But, these challenges present opportunities for growth and innovation. The systems that are put in place today will help companies emerge even stronger. 

In today’s episode, we get to chat with the director of Emergency Preparedness Services (EPS), Dave Greenberg, AKA “Rescue Dave”. He shares how a team with a TRUST Culture can be more cohesive and effective. It is essential to have trust in your team, in the resources, in the systems, in your team’s technical ability, and trust in yourself.

By strengthening your culture of TRUST, not only can you build a solid team but also help you prepare for any crisis your organisation may face.

Ever changin’ as it flows
