Hosted by the New Canaan Fire Department   60 Main Street    New Canaan CT

About the Program: Leading in Today’s Emergency Services is a ‘hands-on’ workshop features a collaborative leadership model that explores group communication, trust and respect, group dynamics, problem solving skills and leadership styles. Using open ended questioning and examples from emergency services heralded as embracing best practices, our instructors will facilitate the group in defining leadership and promoting how successful officers lead. Team building exercises will be interspersed throughout the session, along with opportunities for weaving the participants’ own experiences into the learning process.

The class will explore concepts to engage their team, characteristics of transformational leadership, and conduct problem solving exercises to include project management skill development. Participants will conclude the session with a discussion on their experiences, and how these experiences strengthen their overall contributions to the department and the community. You will walk away from this workshop excited and energized with new direction for your emergency service organization.
