Your Leadership Quotient: What You Tolerate is What You Live With

Georgia World Congress Center – Room B407
John Tippett, CFO, FIFireE, Director, Fire Service Programs, National Fallen Firefighters Foundation
Leader careers are made and lost based on decisions. The popular decision may be the easiest, but it isn’t always best for the department or members in the long run. This presentation will use a combination of interactive discussion and case studies to examine how decisions (good and bad) are made and the ramifications of decision making. An exploration of sound decision-making methods will also be introduced.

Nurturing Future Fire Department Leaders

Friday, August 9, 2019
1:30 – 3:00 pm

Georgia World Congress Center – Room B401
Dennis Compton, Chairman of the Board of Directors, National Fallen Firefighters Foundation
Developing current and future fire officers (of all ranks) is critical to the success of any fire department. The quality of supervision, leadership and management impacts literally everything the department wants to accomplish as an organization. The members of the fire department are either more effective or less effective based significantly on the performance of their formal leaders. This session covers critical skills, traits and behaviors that will simply make fire officers more effective within their various roles. Attendees will be able to use information from this session immediately upon returning to their fire departments.

Developing Critical Incident Decision-Making Skills

Friday, August 9, 2019
1:30 – 3:00 pm

Georgia World Congress Center – Room B309
John Sullivan, MA, EFO, CFO, MIFireE, Fire Chief, Brookline Fire Department
John Tippett, CFO, FIFireE, Director, Fire Service Programs, National Fallen Firefighters Foundation

This interactive workshop focuses on the leadership and safety challenges faced at critical incidents, focusing on identification of indicators which have critical event potential, techniques for getting ahead of and maintaining control of the decision-making curve, and the fundamentals of safety leadership that are needed to preserve scene discipline. Critical events are often once-in-a-career type incidents, and test our proficiencies beyond our normal scope of practice. Many are a result of forces beyond our immediate control; others are seemingly routine incidents gone horribly bad due to flawed decisions. This earnest dialogue focuses on those routine events that blossom out-of-control and often times lead to tragic consequences.
