Leadership Lessons Learned on the Line

Wednesday, April 26
There are as many leadership theories as there are authors and books. This presentation is a practical exercise designed for the fire officer or those who aspire to be one. Participants will identify the leadership traits they most admire and abhor, as well as those leadership traits that they most want to develop in themselves (confidentially). The instructor will provide some leadership tenets that he found useful as a company officer, chief officer, NFA superintendent, and Deputy U.S. Fire Administrator.
