My basic philosophy of leadership is that it can be learned. Leadership is not something only a blessed few are born with, BUT it takes an effective educator to teach leadership. Leadership should be humanistic. Human Resource Development may be a buzz word but I sincerely believe it identifies the challenge that confronts us. There is much wasted talent in the world of Emergency Services and we need to cultivate that talent in order to make a difference. Leadership is finding the GOOD in everyone and then helping them to their BEST!
