Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether you're a new officer or in need of a mentor, From Buddy to Boss: Effective Fire Service Leadership, is a must-have management book you'll turn to over and over again. Fire service veteran Chase Sargent has taken his popular course and written a no-holds barred leadership book for the fire service in a conversational and easy-to-read style. He tells you how to accept and survive politics, deal with the fringe employees, and keep your cool — tricks of the trade that usually takes years to acquire.

Book News Annotation:

Sargent, a fire service veteran, provides a guide to leadership and management for those transitioning from firefighter to officer. Based on his experiences and that of others, he outlines the details he wishes he had known, including the organizational foundation for leadership, people skills, tips on being a leader, maintaining education and training, understanding and enforcing policy, evaluating and compensating people, prejudice, diversity, sexual harassment, anger and violence in the workplace, decision-making, accountability and responsibility, planning, teams, and change.
