Leaders Need Followers

Here is a quick video that uses a unique perspective to shine a light on leadership and followership. I really enjoyed the video and I think the message is perfect. A great picture of leadership in action; in a little different setting. I hope you enjoy and learn something from it. Thanks for humoring me.

    Jason, saw this post yesterday and thought the video would fit in nicely with a post I was working on. I used it at the end, hope you don't mind. Linked back here to give you credit. Thanks for the quality work and keep it up.

    I want to say thank you to all the firefighters out there. My father was a smoke jumper and his career ended when a burning tree fell on him and shattered 3 vertabre in his back. He recovered miraculously. My brother now does some firefighting when things get out of hand, like right now. It seems like the world is burning. I am in the medical field and might end up working with a fire team at some point as well. I have created a website at http://www.emthow.com for those interested in becoming EMTs. I'm trying to get it some exposure, check it out, put a link on your site if possible. Thanks again for all you firefighters do.

How Dare You!-We Can No Longer Tolerate Incompetence!
Saya setuju dengan pendapat dan pengalaman anda. Pekerjan rutin seorang petugas pemadam kebakaran adalah berlatih dan terus berlatih. Dan apabila di antara teman petugas pemadam kebakaran disini yang mempunyai materi latihan boleh kah saya meminta materi latihan pemadam kebakaran itu ?

How Dare You!-We Can No Longer Tolerate Incompetence!
Two years ago I was being trained and tested on required performance. I was able to do all but a duties. I attended every training session, asked questions and researched matters related to fire fighting. I couldn't drag another fire fighter and I had trouble "throwing" a ladder from ground to roof. I was released…

How Dare You!-We Can No Longer Tolerate Incompetence!
Excellent article, after 30 years on the job I agree. What has always bothered me was why do firefighters too often find themselves in trouble? Why are we on an ice covered roof when we could more easily and safely removed glass from the second story. Why open up a confined space of decades dried…
