Where firefighters come to talk training

As a servant leader hopefully you will not fall into the trap of focusing your efforts on self-serving ventures or only focusing on the organization.  As a servant leader you must be focused on what is truly the most valuable resource in the fire service, the others around you.  

It is important to remember there is no I in team.  This is a hard area to over come and it takes constant effort with successful leaders as they are always striving to get better, focused on the vision of the organization with their eye on the target.  However we must also remember that it is not about "Me" but about "We".

Attitude Tips:

Refuse to allow your attitude to become boastful, bitter and resentful

1.) A person's attitude determines the level of responsibility they are given.  As a leader you have the responsibility for a lot more than "Me"…the "We" of the organization.

2.) A person's attitude often demonstrates their level of reliability.  Can "We" rely of the leader "Me"?

3.) A person's attitude reveals their ability to be trusted with public responsibilities.  We the "Me" does to influence the "We" and how they perform and treat others.

4.) A person's attitude often dictates their level of resilience (ability to bounce back or live through).  "We" can accomplish more than "me".
