The leadership seminar provided by Dr. Brad McRae, CSP, gave members of the Medavie EMS senior management team key insights into leadership styles and attributes, along with real life examples of how leaders developed organizational cultures that achieved outstanding success. Dr. McRae’s engaging presentation style and grasp of the subject matter, left our team asking for more.
