Team Dynamics: How to Build an Effective Team in the Firehouse for the Fireground
Just lead. A simple statement that implies that leadership is simple. It isn’t. Part of being an effective leader is building an effective team and it’s not just a matter of telling people to work well together. The age old axiom that applies, “if it was easy, anyone could do it”. It ain’t easy. In order for any crew to achieve success on the fireground, they must first achieve success in the firehouse. That success is measured in how much they trust the leader, as well as the team they are working with. In order to achieve that trust a leader must understand what goes into the ideas and concepts behind team development, formation and lifecycle, and cohesion. We will explore these elements and more, drawing on experiences born from the fire service and the military so that they can be applied in a very specific environment, the firehouse. Achieving that goal is what allows effective fireground leaders to apply their craft on the street, without it, you’ve got a herd of individuals destined to fail.
