Ep 73 Allowing The Team To Be One Step Ahead Of The Leader- Tom Miner Part 1

Ep 73 Allowing The Team To Be One Step Ahead Of The Leader- Tom Miner Part 1

The leader of today, recognizes that the "busy" leader is NOT the effective leader.

The effective leader will trust the team, delegate appropriately and empower the team to make decisions AND make mistakes. Strong leaders will observe and support and recognize the team is normally one step ahead of them.

In this interview and leadership training from the Leading Through Chaos Summit, Tom Miner shares his experience of leading teams during crisis and emergencies and how to lead effectively after leading in less than normal circumstances in 2020 & 2021.

"We must take the normal business model and scrap it" what used to work is not going to work anymore. Leaders must be agile and able to pivot quickly to stay relevant. If we take care of the people, they will take care of the business.

Tom retired from Pierce County after 27 years with the Sheriff’s department and 7 years with the Pierce County Department of Emergency Management. While with the Sheriff’s department he was responsible for all search and rescue activity in the county, responding to hundreds of SAR missions throughout the region and representing law enforcement in the county EOC during disaster operations.
Tom left the Sheriff’s department as a Major in 2003 to join PCDEM as the Program Manager for Washington States US&R Task Force, (WATF 1) part of FEMA’s National Urban Search and Rescue program.
Tom has served as a US&R Task Force Leader and is a member of the FEMA Incident Support Team (IST) and was the White Incident Support Team leader from 2010 to December 2014.
He has responded to a long list of emergencies and disasters to include 1994 Northridge Earthquake, the Oklahoma City Bombing, 9/11 at ETC & the Pentagon, Shuttle Columbia search & 9 hurricanes including Katrina & Irma (Puerto Rico)
