Leaderbyte Podcast 7: Leading through Ugliness Part Two: Volunteer Boots on the Ground

November 6, 2016

In Part Two of Leading through Ugliness, we discuss Hurricane Matthew and disaster relief with veteran disaster volunteer and site director, Bill Fogarty.  Bill began his Disaster Relief journey with Hurricane Katrina, and has since become a leader in several disaster relief volunteer efforts.  Currently Bill Fogarty provides leadership to 14 Hurricane Matthew sites in North Carolina. In this Bonus episode, our Host Chester Goad, continues to dig deep into leading through ugly situations. What sort of person volunteers for disaster relief? What are the most important things leaders must remember during crisis situations?  North Carolina and communities all along the coast are still hurting. Is volunteering for you? How can you help?
