Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria hit with equal force in 2017, and overwhelmed all regular forms of assistance. FEMA, the National Guard and Red Cross could not keep up with the demand for rescue and almost more importantly, relief supplies once the storm passed. Individuals and grassroots movements stepped up to fill the gap, like the Cajun Navy in Houston, Samaritans Purse and KeysStrong.org in the Keys, American Black Cross, Cajun Airlift and Veteran Disaster Relief in Puerto Rico. Largely unspoken people helped other people, neighbors helped neighbors, and all of it used a method known to Agilists, even if the individuals didn't understand what they were using. Listen to the story of how an agile coach became part of the response and together with others, helped bring comfort and joy back to over 125 families in the Keys. More importantly, learn how you can use shared common purposes, agile values, principles and methods to do the same for any crisis that might come your way.
