Upon being congratulated for an appointment or promotion to a leadership position, how often do we hear “I’m not sure if it’s congratulations or condolences!”

Really? Do you believe leadership is a privilege or a burden?

Join in for the conclusion of this lively discussion with "Stop, Drop, and Roll With the Punches" host Billy D. Hayes, nationally-respected fire service leader, as he discusses the 'privilege of leadership' with special guest Ron Dennis, the Director of Professional Development and Training at Columbia Southern University and retired assistant fire chief of the Avondale AZ Fire Department.

Avid history buffs, Billy and Ron often point to the leadership styles from some of the greatest leaders in American history, and how they easily translate to our nation’s fire service.

The examples they cite offer excellent guidance for everyone in any organization. This program is certainly a great listen for those facing important leadership challenges/opportunities in the fire service. It applies to any level of firefighter- from fire chief right on down to probationary member.

Helping leaders embrace a “leadership as privilege” perspective will go a long way toward achieving significant individual and organizational results beneficial not only to the leader and the company, but to the entire department as well.
