Important Class Notes
Volunteer fire departments run on leadership. Whether they are volunteer or paid-on-call, these firefighters and officers respond because they are called to serve their community and to be a part of something bigger than themselves. (Opportunities to drive Code-3 and to engage in constructive property damage don’t hurt matters, either.) Ethical leadership can enhance these motives, and create a departmental culture characterized by trust, mutual respect, and the pursuit of excellence. This presentation will explore the dynamics that drive non-career firefighters in their relationship with departments. Participants will learn and apply six factors that drive firefighter engagement, and practice core communication skills including listening, giving direction, and giving and receiving feedback. You will also explore how to make leadership decisions in ways that promote trust, even among those who do not “get their way.” The presentation will cover specific, practical concepts for motivating firefighters to serve the community beyond emergency response and engage participants on how to respectfully re-engage cynical or disconnected firefighters. This lively, interactive session is suitable for chief officers, company officers, and all ranks of emerging leaders. Come prepared to think, to laugh, and to learn.
