Podcast on The Command Culture Necessary to Reshape the Golden Hour of Crisis

Sand Table

George Whitney each week speaks with people making a difference in emergency management. They talk about what works, what doesn’t, how to work efficiently and how to get it done with maximum effect.

In this hour long podcast titled Command and Control we discuss the nature of crisis and the type of command climate and culture necessary to be able to deal with and reshape critical incidents to our favor.

Military planners have long said that no plan survives contact with the enemy - that plans can only take an organization so far. People, their skills and resources, and leadership have to carry organizations the rest of the way. In this podcast episode, we speak with a former marine and 29-year police officer about command and control, and how the terms necessarily mean different things to different people, at different times.
