Command and Control Leadership Development Certificate Programs

         1.  Team Building and Customer Service

                     This course helps the participants to understand how each member of a team is identified.  We will discuss the needs of the employee and the                         needs of the organization to help build a strong team.   We will review what motives the employee and how to keep them motived so that work

                     performance is improved.  We will discuss how to delegate authority to team players in order to get results.  Participants will learn the

        2.  Effective Communications and Managing Change and Planning

                     Every relationship and organization state that their number one problem is, Communication.  Research shows that communication fails due to                           the lack of communications or misunderstood communications.   Communication failure between people and organizations will be discussed                           and participants will learn how to improve on effective communications to build character and trust.  We will review the "Art of Reading Body                             Language", a nonverbal way to communication in order to understand people and situations.  Participants will learn about the eight steps on                             implementing change and learning how to manage the change with employees.  Discussion will be led into why change is so important to                                   people and organizations.  We will engage participates on why planning is a part of our life's and how to incorporate it into our business life in                           order to move forward in progress.

       3.  Managing Employee Behavior and Conflict Resolution

                     This course will deliver information on how employee's behavior can impact the work environment.  We will examine the difference between                               an employee's mistake vs behavioral problems of the employee and how to spot the differences.  By knowing the difference, the supervisor                               will be able to address coaching, and/or training, and if warranted, discipline.  The course will review the common personal problems of                                     employees and discuss how employees can come to an agreement over conflict.  We will explain the five-steps of discipling an employee

                     when they have disregarded a policy, procedure, contract, directive or direct order and show how to embrace a coaching culture in the work                               environment.

       4.  Enhancing Leadership Skills

                      This program will teach the participant how to enhance their leadership skills that they have now and to develop new skills that will assist

                       them in their career.  We will explain the six "C" of leadership that every supervisor should learn along with what employees want to see                                     from their supervisor.  Participants will learn how to develop a plan of self-discipline to improve their leadership and management skills. 

                       We will explain the "Cue-Based" decision making skills and show how to use problem solving solutions for the day-to-day operations. 

                       We will teach the four (4) R's of management - Respect, Recognize, Responsibility, and Reward.

        5.  Managing Emergency Incidents, Events and Resources in Operations and Prevention Teams.

                      Will discuss how important pre-incident planning is to our jobs and how planning can prevent the eight ball effect.  Review how the proper

                       size-up of an incident can put everyone's head in the game.  Showing command presence and choosing the correct incident action plan (IAP)

                       can result in positive outcomes.  Will review how business organizations incorporate "Crew Resource Management" (CRM), style and how it                               fits into the fire and EMS service.  Participants will discuss the importance of situational awareness on different types of incidents and                                       events and how conditions can change rapidly.  We will identify how to manage resources so that the trained supervisor can plan, organize,                               staff, direct, coordinate, and control.
