Reinvent Your Leadership!
Every fire chief can reinvent their leadership in a challenging economy through an interactive presentation that makes reinvention easy! The economy isn't down; it's different! With recent events, the realities of management in the firefighting business have changed permanently. No matter what, the next year is probably the end of the way most of us will do business-as-usual. What we do as chiefs doesn’t always connect with what we think the public perceives and it affects our funding and resources. Externally, you will learn how to connect better with supervisors, budget managers, administrators and the general public to be a more effective leader for your department.
Internally, you will learn how to place the right person in the right job reducing leadership stress. How do you lead different people in a changing environment? Are you managing everyone in their personal strengths? In a humorous, entertaining and interactive exchange about positioning individuals to bring out their best performance in any situation. Attendees will explore essential tools for managing, leading & retention of good workers, improved public communication and reduced conflict, delivered in a “Dr. Phil meets Jeff Foxworthy” style
