Where firefighters come to talk training

Having multiple personalities at work is not usually considered to be a good thing. But think about the benefits of having the ability to shift into different leadership styles as different people and situations cross your path.

In the Fire Service, it is critical to have an autocratic style on the Fire Ground. A crisis is no time for consensus building. Fire Personnel are trained for years on how to handle those situations and how to make quick and calculated decisions. Then later, in leadership positions from Company officer to Chief, there is a need to be more planful and strategic. It is appropriate and important to collaborate and discuss what is ahead and to collect the appropriate data. Rising up the leadership ladder can be challenging for those used to one way of doing things.
