      Officer Development

      Regardless of our rank or position, we all have a role to play in advancing the mission of our organization. This requires a balance of three types of roles: leaders, managers, and supervisors. It is crucial to understand these three unique and interwoven roles as they pertain to our primary purpose – serving the citizens and guests we’ve sworn to protect. Effective performance in these roles require constant balance of priorities, knowledge, skills, and humility.  This course is designed to advance our thinking of our current roles, what we could be doing, and how it relates to the organization we serve. It intends to help us better understand the perspectives of those above us and the balance they must strike to fulfill their role. How to be better leaders and followers. How to take care of our people and the mission, simultaneously. The course starts with an overview of definitions of and the balance that must be struck between these various roles. The following weeks explores the role of supervisors, managers, and leaders, and the skills necessary to execute the job functions required. The final night culminates in scenarios that cover the range of topics discussed and the interplay between each role at various levels of the organization.  Students who desire a DFPC Officer I certification will have an opportunity to complete a JPR portfolio for submission, but no JPRs will be evaluated during the course. Topics necessary to comply with NFPA 1021 will be covered, but testing will be on the student’s own time. Any questions can be directed to chief@estesvalleyfire.org. Course meets five Thursdays: May 23, 30, June 6, 13, 20, from 18:00 – 22:00. All five required for the course.  Students required to obtain texts for course:- Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win (link)- The Dichotomy of Leadership: Balancing the Challenges of Extreme Ownership to Lead and Win (link)
