2017 Seminar Series - March
This program will explore how we, as individuals, can help ensure our departments are on track and ways we can truly make a difference in our organization, regardless of rank.
It’s easy to complain about the job, but what can you really do about it! What can you do about others who don’t love it like you do? This program offers a rankless “gut check” into how we each contribute to the success of the fire service. Concepts such as loyalty alignment, followership, and attitude are explored in detail and tangible techniques to facilitate change are offered.
