Dealing With A “Less Than Desirable” Firehouse Culture - Extreme Leadership

Great leaders know they simply can’t get anything done without people...  And those who do it well know they can get more done by who they know, than what they think they know. So leading up to our pre-conference workshop at the FDIC2019, here is some food for thought on fixing a dysfunctional fire department culture.As a leader in an organization regardless of the color of your helmet, you must evaluate you and your officers ability to positively engage and influence those in your charge.

Tactical Misery - Are We Training Them For Failure?

One of the biggest challenges for any professional educator is how to stay up to date with the latest ways to engage and motivate fire service students for positive behavioral modification. Most of us understand that one size fits all training, in the fire service doesn’t engage everybody. But, is it bigger than that? Depending on your audience’s intelligence map (which is personality based for each student in the fire service) they can greatly differ in learning styles. For example some…See More

Is Your Department Ready for the Invasion of Gen Z

Whether you are leading them or teaching them, let’s get one thing straight Generation Z are NOT Millennials. They are currently about 1/5th of the workforce and rapidly growing. They were born after 1995, therefore they are under the age of 24. FETC Services has focused a lot of leadership training on understanding Millennials in the firehouse but now it’s time to look…See More

The Fire Chief / CEO Mindset

The Fire Chief / CEO Mindset.Many Fire Chiefs in small or mid-sized departments waste time on what I call $15 an hour work dealing with the day to day tasks like vehicle checks, chores and maintenance. Meanwhile, they forgo working on visionary work like professional development, or obtaining grants that could yield thousands of dollars to assist the operating budget. Time needed to build relationships with the right people, inside and outside the organization, to further advance the mission.…See More

Avoiding The Blinder Mentality

Life moves at a fast pace these days... So fast you can easily miss an opportunity to improve one self. The pace affects everybody from the firefighter down on the floor, right up to the chief’s office. There are two common management models during these busy times, the first would be the progressive management model. Being progressive involves supporting the needs and requirements of the organization and predicting or forecasting the future. The latter is called crisis or chaos management…See More

The Rockstar Firefighter - Implementing the 10,000 hour Rule for Tactical Mastery - Billy Greenwood

There are NO shortcuts to the top or high speed travel lanes to mastery... Seriously, what does it take to become the go to guy in your firehouse?  What does it take to step beyond the go to guy and become the "elite" firefighter?  Elite firefighters have invested a tremendous amount of time and effort mastering his or her skill set through thousands of hours of training and life experiences. Looking at experience alone, the elite firefighter has often been provided opportunities to succeed…See More

The Micky D's Franchise Method

How many times have you heard, "Man, it's like we've got four different fire departments working here!" Many have and we all know the meaning behind that statement. Fire Departments that have 3 or 4 different operational shifts, can often do things each a little differently. You know what I am talking about like differences in daily chores, vehicle maintenance, riding assignments or even operational responses. The amount of "different" can be dependant upon the amount of leadership oversight. …See More

Searching in Modern Times - Adult Victim Profiling

We all understand the mission of the fire service. Upon arrival to a given building fire, the fire department’s number one priority is life safety. If we have any possible chance of locating and rescuing an occupant, we must start a rapid and systematic primary search. Many smaller fire departments in the United States with limited manpower are forced to perform search and rescue from the…See More

Billy, I think I've got two log ins, so hope I don't confuse myself too! Where's those "Y" kids when you need them ! ( to fix your computers, and figure out what all the buttons are on the phones!)  Rick - Assessment Centers

Most of the instructors are local, but they do bring in outside guys too.  They typically pay a set fee and reimburse or pay for travel and lodging.  The winter school is all lecture and it is usually a pretty goo crowd. There is an expo on Friday  and class sessions all day Saturday and the morning of Sunday.  It's a good time. Some outside guys they have had include Dave Dodson, John Mittendorf, Forrest Reeder, Bobby Halton, and many more.  I think it be worth a submission.  

 

Thanks for the add and let me know if you have more questions. I can also give you the email of the coordinator if your interested.

 

Take care,

Jason

Bill,

  You should consider submitting one of your classes for the Missouri Fire School. They are always looking for new content. Here is the link to submit:  http://www.mufrti.org/conf/fireschool.asp

 

Take care,

Bill,

Sorry I missed your show last Friday I was traveling to Boston and got jammed up by American Airlines. I never did make it to Boston after 12 hours of nonsense and had to return home. I sure would like to visit with you on the radio as I find your opinions and thoughts to be extremely provocative and insightful. I apologize again for missing your show and look forward to joining you on your next show.
Your friend Bobby

Bill:

Welcome to the best of the best.

We have a meeting on Wednesday to discuss schedules and such.

I will let you know more after that, but it looks like I will be moving over here for blog talk as well.

That will give me the total FE package.

Then, I got to break the news to the FirefighterNetcast boys.
