The emergency response system as it is designed was never designed to deal with the complexities of the underlying psychological trauma and pain that leads to the varied behaviours which result in the application of force or instigating a revolving door in the emergency department or criminal justice system. It’s no wonder these problems are escalating. We are making every issue a nail and approaching it with a hammer.

The New View gives us the terminology, the tone (the language) and the platform to disrupt the paradigms that hinder our ability to be transformational leaders. The choices we make today about how we ask questions, how we create rules, how we react to failure (how we treat people) will directly impact our business performance in the future.
