Company Officer Leadership – Hercules, CA

July 24, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


About the  program:
So you want to be an officer or have already been promoted. You’re no longer “one of the guys”, you’re in charge. In your new assignment being ready is paramount. Riding the front  seat is the easy part.  It’s the remainder of the shift that is the challenge. How to effectively lead your crew, set boundaries, handle expectations and deal with conflict is your concern. This program will address these topics and more and focus on the intangibles needed for you to become an exceptional company officer!

This program will:

  • Define the issues and factors breeding power, influence, leadership and teambuilding.
  • Develop an understanding of personal influence and how traits affect team dynamics.
  • Develop strategies for creating synergy within teams.
  • Define commonly observed conflict issues and develop conflict management skills.
  • Define emerging issues in emergency services and translate them to team success.
  • Define responsibilities with regard to proper counseling and documentation.
