There are lots of books about management styles available, but for my money, the ones written by firefighters are the best.
They’re specific. They’re full of real-world examples. And they aren’t just page after page of the author’s latest catchphrases.
Take “Fully Involved Leadership,” the new book by Chief Gary Ludwig. It explains concepts that any member of the fire service can use to become a strong leader… from how to keep your emotions under control in stressful situations to good decision-making .
And Gary does it by storytelling, the best way to make concepts clear.
Gary has four decades of experience in the fire service. He’s currently chief of the Champaign, Illinois fire department.
He’s responded to an estimated 25,000 fire, rescue and EMS calls during his career.
