A message regarding Covid-19 and Tero International from Tero's President, Rowena Crosbie.
Resource from CIRAS regarding PPE sources in Iowa
CIRAS (and Iowa State University Extension) has provided a Summary of Emergency COVID-19 PPE (personal protection equipment) Sources in Iowa. Click here to read the resources list.
CIRAS has received a variety of requests from public and private organizations throughout the state requesting assistance in identifying alternate sources for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Based on these requests, we have performed an outreach effort over the last several days to identify the most likely sources of product. If you have any hospitals, long term care facilities, or other medical providers in your community that are looking for PPE, please share with them if you think it will help. They can contact the providers directly.
In addition, they have provided a Supplier Scouting form. Click here fore the Supplier Scouting form. If any organization needs assistance identifying sources of supply (for PPE or any other industrial needs related to COVID disruptions), please have them fill it out and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org.

What are the secrets of high performing teams?
Instead of studying humans, it might be wiser to look out the window and study nature. Did you ever wonder when watching a flock of birds how they managed to stay in formation to achieve their goal? Has the thought of how bees know and replicate the process of extracting nectar, the roles they must play in the hive and the timing of what they do to create honey ever perplexed you?
Watch this Tero Tip to learn if you handle you stress by fighting, flying or freezing.
Enjoy chapter 1 of Your Invisible Toolbox.
I hope you enjoy this chapter, and please share with us your thoughts or a small act of kindness you've recently done.
