Program Description

 

Company Officer Development Institute:

Building Tomorrow’s Leaders… Today.

 

The Company Office Development Institute was created to strengthen front-line supervision and leadership skills of company officers and aspiring company officers. All too often, firefighters are promoted into the position of company officer without first having the opportunity to participate in a program to develop the skills needed to lead their team to success.

 

The results are predictable. The newly promoted company officer faces challenges they are not prepared to handle. This causes a great deal of frustration, anxiety, and in some cases can be career damaging. It can also damage relationships and prohibit the success of the company.

 

This weeklong program is designed to help build tomorrow’s leaders…Today!

It is based on proven strategies and skill development that prepares a company officer for success. This is a dynamic, interactive program addressing skills related to teambuilding, communications, problem solving, motivation, time management, role conflict, coaching, discipline and much more.

 

Participants include aspiring company officers, newly promoted company officers and veteran company officers wanting to sharpen their supervisory and leadership skills.
