    Personality assessment

    what kind of discussion? Was it about relationships with others or how you like to be coached or lead?

    Personality assessment

    I am curious if any agencies require a personality assessment prior to employment or prior to a promotion. Maybe a DISC or Myers Briggs? What’s your experience with this?

    the 100% directionless thread

    I just got back from the first on site week of Ambulance Service Manager, the leadership class put on by Fitch and Associates. It’s pretty good. Lots of focus on emotional intelligence and just culture. Which is really what most of our systems are lacking.

    freezing up and choking during skill drills

    There is a difference between doing effective simulation with proper cues and a debriefing session versus just throwing a manikin on a table. https://www.healthysimulation.com/20368/ems-performance-medical-simulation/

    Scheduling software?

    I expect ePro to become a lot more similar to NinthBrain. ESO is committed to fixing it

    freezing up and choking during skill drills

    I'd be interested in seeing some research on this. The last study I saw (I'm looking for the citation) showed that increasing stress levels in training scenarios directly impacted real world performance. That's why realistic simulation is so valuable in building competency.

    freezing up and choking during skill drills

    Agreed. An astute instructor knows how to add stress to skill scenarios. I add in stressors until the students are able to function while dealing with hysterical bystanders, loud noises and a sick patient all at once.

    Scheduling software?

    We use ePro and while it’s feature rich, implementation of those features is a pain. I understand that ESO will be retooling lots of it. We use almost all the modules. Incident reporting, equipment tracking, vehicles, and all the rest. The con ed module is awful. I’d love to move to ninthbrain.

    freezing up and choking during skill drills

    I always hear students say stuff like this, "I can do the skills, I just can't do it in front of other people" My reply? You better learn how. I'll work with you and put you in lower stress scenarios to start as you build confidence, but you do need to learn how to perform in front of others...
