Something a bit different for this 200th episode of The Sport
Psych Show. This week I speak to Trevor Whyte. Trevor has worked in
hospitals as a Respiratory Therapist since 2006 having spent time
on the frontline, on various projects and in leadership. Dealing
with airway management and critical care taught him the importance
of high functioning teams for good outcomes.
At the beginning of the pandemic Trevor was tasked with leading a team to set up and operate a mass testing site for COVID-19, quickly finding traction with his team. Trevor was given the opportunity to become an early mass vaccine site which delivered almost 170,000 vaccines. To manage the rapidly changing information and challenging conditions, Trevor worked to build a team mindset and framework that allowed the team to work in safe uncertainty and meet their goals under great pressure.
Trevor has played and coached soccer and has been able to translate his experience in sports to help his healthcare teams find success in challenging and ever-changing conditions, such as a pandemic.
