Studies show that eight out of the top ten stressors at the PSAP have nothing to do with the work itself, and most of these stressors reflect poor leadership. If much of the stress felt by the front line can be lessened or eliminated, why aren’t leaders taking immediate action? Many managers would like to, but aren’t sure what specific actions will make a difference. This presentation outlines the power of a people-oriented approach, the keys to successful implementation, and offers powerful stories of success from communication center managers around the country.
