going the distance on developing
This class is about living your life as a leader by developing and reinforcing daily habits and setting goals that you put into action to strengthen your leadership development. We will go beyond the usual discussion of character traits and map out a course of action that will put you on a road of successful personal growth. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or just starting out, this class offers a plan of action to fit everyone as we identify the high standards of leadership, your current performance, and how to close the gap. This interactive class will get you to think about yourself from a broad perspective and help you identify where you can start, or strengthen, your leadership development. Participants will identify how to reinforce or change patterns of behavior in order to strengthen leadership transformation and development and apply leadership skills to everyday life. In addition, they will realize how specific goal setting produces desired results with leadership actions and behaviors. We will also discuss how to change others’ perception of you as you focus on your leadership goals through practice and practical application.
This class is relevant to everyone. We will tap into the toolbox of brainwork where leadership habits are developed and strengthened. Leadership is about people, the fire service is about people, and great leaders understand how to live their lives as leaders so that putting others first is natural to them.
