Our Next Live Webinar

June 14, 2021 10:00 am PST
The Fire Leadership Lab – Module 1: The Fire Service Leadership Pandemic – ALSO AVAILABLE ON DEMAND, for later viewing. $20.
This brand new, dynamic, and interactive 90-minute webinar will help both aspiring and current officers by giving you insights and tools for leadership in the 21st century. This is the first of a new series called “The Fire Leadership Lab” where students will participate in fire service leadership lectures, discussions, and interactive exercises. We begin with the first in the series, “The Fire Leadership Lab – Module 1: The Fire Service Leadership Pandemic.” The American Fire Service is in the midst of a leadership pandemic. Our experienced leaders are retiring at an exponential rate. Meanwhile, our job is changing, becoming more dynamic, diverse, and challenging. This has caused a vacuum whereby many fire departments are struggling to keep up. We will discuss the national landscape of leadership both in the fire service, and elsewhere. Solutions, pitfalls and personal development will be emphasized. Join Battalion Chief Anthony Kastros, author of the Fire Engineering best seller, Mastering the Fire Service Assessment Center, and Mastering Fireground Command – Calm the Chaos! This is a new, one-of-kind, hands-on, interactive webinar designed to help you promote, or get better at your current job!
