Event Description



The one-day (8 hours) “Credentialing: A Pathway to Personal and Professional Excellence” workshop prepares fire and emergency service personnel to use the “whole” officer model to conduct a personal self-assessment to identify strengths and weaknesses and develop a personal plan to get to the next level. Topics in the workshop include:

§  What it means to be a “well-rounded professional”.

§  Why professional development is critical to your future in the fire service

§  What qualifications elected officials and citizens want out of industry leaders in the future?

§  Developing your path to personal and professional excellence

§  Keeping momentum and achieve designated status

§  Practical exercises to assist in completing your self-assessment

The one-day (8 hours) “Nurturing Fire Service Leaders through Mentoring” workshop is about refining the next generation of leaders. There are approximately 32,000 fire chiefs in the United States and, on average we lose 3-4 a month due to retirements. As fire service leaders, we have a fundamental responsibility to develop our future leaders. Succession planning and the development of leaders is one of the greatest challenges we are facing in the fire service. The mass amounts of retirements in recent years have exacerbated this challenge. Nurturing Fire Service Leaders through Mentoring is not only designed to assist peers and colleagues outside our departments, but can be adopted to assist the local fire officer within their organization. By attending, you’ll be able to:


§  Compare and contrast mentoring to various other leadership tools

§  Cite the importance of the synchronization of succession planning, professional development and the organization’s strategic plan

§  Cite benefits of a mentoring program to the organization as a whole

§  Describe steps necessary in the development of a formal mentoring process

§  Recognize and define generational groups and describe values they hold that may impact a mentoring relationship

§  Identify and compare other successful mentoring relationships and their impact on the organization.

§  Recognize the various pitfalls and problems that may occur during a mentoring relationship.
