Push to talk, not to thInk
Communication during a crisis
Communicating during a crisis is its own skill all by itself. We’re going to talk about some principles that can help you get it right whether you use radios professionally in public safety, aviation, or the military–or if you are a private citizen trying to get that 911 call out in a hurry.
Ideas in here to think about: “Aviate, Navigate, Communicate.” Don’t be “that guy” on the radio, take one step back from the crisis when you click that button. “Push to talk, not to think.” -A friend we know. Finally, think about how communication strategies are also leadership strategies–Clear out some of that fog and friction, and bring calm to the chaos.

Sometimes the skills you need to be a professional have less to do with your actual job and more to do with, well, everything else. Put money away for retirement. Have a backup plan. Have a healthy marriage and life at home. Get a hobby. Taking care of your own wellness and the people around you are what help you be a high-performer at work. All the knife hands and shooting drills in the world won’t help you be successful if you don’t show up to work in a state of mind to focus on all the cool stuff.
