EMS Leadership Academy Commitment
Lisa and Robbie are committed to changing all that with the innovative and transformational programs offered through the EMS Leadership Academy. Lisa and Robbie promise to help their clients to create a magnetic, thriving and sustainable organization.
The EMS Leadership Academy was created out of a collaboration between Robbie MacCue and Lisa Giruzzi after they worked together to produce incredible results at the non-profit ambulance organization where Robbie serves as the president. After working together on this project over several years and sharing the results, one thing became clear, the problems experienced at his organization were not unique. Numerous other agencies were experiencing similar problems and were hungry for an answer.
Robbie MacCue has more than 14 years experience in the EMS industry. Currently, he is a flight paramedic with the Town of Colonie, NY. For more than 10 years, Robbie has served as President of Sand Lake Ambulance, a non-profit EMS organization in Upstate New York.
Lisa Giruzzi is a best-selling author, result-producing consultant and an award-winning trainer with more than twenty-five years’ experience helping individuals and organizations to be more successful and achieve their goals. She specializes in causing breakthrough results for her clients by giving them access to a whole new level of power and performance.
Lisa and Robbie have combined their expertise and talents to form the EMS Leadership Academy to address the difficulties so many EMS organizations are facing on a daily basis. Difficulties such as a dwindling membership due to the “revolving door” syndrome – where new people join just as quickly as others are leaving – and a lack of engagement of the membership they do have resulting in a few dedicated, overburdened people running the organization. In addition, because there has been a shortage of meaningful, effective leadership training for EMS personnel, there is often a lack of qualified leaders to choose from to ensure a sustainable, thriving organization
This recipe for disaster leaves non-profit EMS organizations vulnerable to being dismantled and replaced by for-profit ambulance companies rather than neighbors working together, delivering a high quality of care to the residents of their town.
