You will be introduced to the tenets of Full Contact Leadership and how it applies to the fire officer and those who aspire to become fire officers. Understanding and addressing the often uncomfortable personnel conflicts and subordinate/superior relationships and their application to the fireground are a major focus. The steps to resolving personnel conflict are compared and applied to the familiar fireground evolutions with which most fire operators are comfortable--sort of a way to introduce a level of comfort into the uncomfortable areas of command and leadership.
