Message from Purple Patch: COVID-19



  • Les


    I just watched the video attached to the Sunday Special. This was very well done and was an excellent example of calm, reasoned, and hopeful leadership.

    As Director of EMS Operations for the Calgary Zone of Alberta Health Services, I support 1000 paramedics serving a large population over a large geographic area. Your advice and approach is in line with all of the public health messaging: stay healthy, look after yourself, and care for others when you can. Thank you for this approach in the blizzard of panicked bullshit (to borrow a phrase) that is common in other forums. As we do in our messaging, you acknowledged the reality and then moved on to what we can control and what we can do.

    I am also an associate professor in the School of Leadership Studies at Royal Roads University. I have used that lens to observe you in all aspects of Purple Patch (podcasts, videos, etc.) and your actions personify what we teach in the Masters program I work in. That was particularly evident in today's video.

    Thank you and lead on.
