New Free Leadership and Management Programs Available

The Firefighters Support Foundation (FSF) has released its two newest free video programs, Leadership Principles for Public Safety Agencies and Management Principles for Public Safety Agencies. Both of these companion programs are at the practical level, and are useful for individuals wanting to move up the ladder, for officers in command or supervisory positions, and for top management. 

The leadership program debunks the myth that leadership is a separate activity from management, and it details the specific traits and actions that leaders must exhibit. The management program does likewise, and it explains the single most powerful management tool, one that has been in continuous use in all high-performance organizations for a half-century.
The programs provide turn-key training. Individuals can view the programs at their leisure, while agencies can use the PowerPoint slides as distributed notes, run the video presentation, and pause the video to discuss the material. In this way, the training is consistent from session to session, trainer time is greatly reduced, and the training is completely documented.
Like all FSF programs, these programs are free to all public safety professionals.  Simply go to to download your copy.
