This Website is for all those who are interested in the latest in some of the research with performance, leadership, and development that myself and others have been working with and completed. I will be doing my best to update with the latest research and findings that are in an easily accessible format for professionals and others interested.
I welcome comments, questions, and discussion on what is presented here. Including:
- New Directions
- Comments or questions on any findings
- Questions about how to use the findings
- Other comments and suggestions for the fire community to consider.
We have surveyed 49 “crews”(engines, handcrews, modules, helitack) on the leadership qualities found to be most important to wildland firefighters. We are also working on validating a short questionnaire that assesses wildland fire leaders. We hope to make our analyses and findings available to the fire community in 2013.
We will also be presenting a development tool that we have worked with fire managers to create and have had several fire personnel trying it out in the summer of 2012.
In the mean time…
Please take a look at some of the past research that has been made available.
