What: Info sharing regarding the WFLDP Why: A program that can help individuals working in high risk work environments develop universal leadership skills How: History of program Intent of the program Overview of basic program components End State: Provide an improved awareness of the WFLDP
Lets begin by looking at these three terms. I am sure everyone will have their own take on the definition and relationship of these three activities. Some will think they are the same and some will think they are very different. But I think that you manage things and money, supervise tasks, and lead people…all are important. But, if you don’t lead your people the other two will prove to be very difficult.
The first component is the Leadership Values and Principles. We know that it is not possible to fully quantify good leadership because much of it is an art. But these describe effective leadership behaviors…they provide the vision. The values and principles give a consistent anchor point for all the rest of the program: Each of us defers to our values when there is a difficult decision to be made. Duty, Respect, and Integrity are the values that provide a compass to help leaders do the right thing even when no one is watching. Duty is about your job, Respect is about your co-workers, and Integrity is about yourself. The 11 Leadership Principles are the day to day actions that support those values.
The wildland fire service has many good leaders who model these values and principles. Out ability to establish command and control of new incidents is studied and modeled by many organizations. The Paul Gleason Lead by Example Award program was established to provide recognition of that fact. The award is drawn from nominations that are submitted from individuals who work in the field.
The formal courses in the curriculum were designed to address specific challenges that individuals face as they move into positions of increasing leadership responsibility...moving from individual team member behaviors to team building techniques to team command and control concepts.
This is exactly the same as the previous, but in simpler language.
In order to achieve results a plan must be established Jumping into your work without a plan is like starting a journey without looking at a map
As the team matures, members gradually learn to cope with each other and the pressures that they face. As a result, the team goes through the fairly predictable stages noted on the slide.
A skill is the ability to do something proficiently. Managerial skills fall into three basic categories: conceptual, human relations, and technical skills. The degree to which each type of skill is used depends upon the level of the manager’s position. In the growing global marketplace, managers need special skill sets to deal with global management issues.
A role is a set of behavioral expectations, or a set of activities that a person is expected to perform. Managers’ roles fall into three basic categories: informational roles, interpersonal roles, and decisional roles.
In a global marketplace where the rate of change is rapidly increasing, flexibility and adaptability are crucial to the managerial process. This process is based in four key functional areas of the organization: planning, organization, leadership, and control. From this perspective, the managerial process can be described as 1) anticipating problems and designing plans to deal with them, 2) coordinating and allocating the resources needed to implement plans, 3) guiding personnel through the implementation process, and 4) reviewing results and making any necessary changes. This last stage provides information to be used in ongoing planning efforts, and thus the cycle starts over again.
Leadership, the third key management function, is the process of guiding and motivating others toward the achievement of organizational goals. Managers are responsible for directing employees on a daily basis as the employees carry out the plans and work within the structure created by management. Organizations need strong effective leadership at all levels to meet goals and remain competitive.
Individuals in leadership positions tend to be relatively consistent in the way they attempt to influence the behavior of others. This pattern of behavior is referred to as leadership style. There are three distinct leadership styles. Autocratic leaders are directive leaders, allowing for very little input from subordinates. These leaders prefer to make decisions on their own. Information typically flows one way: from manager to subordinate. The military is generally autocratic. Participative leadership is a leadership style in which the leader shares decision making with group members and encourages discussion of issues and alternatives. The three types are described on the following slide. Free-rein or laissez faire (French for “leave it alone”) leaders turn over all authority and control to subordinates. Employees are assigned a task and given free rein to figure out the best way to accomplish it. This approach is sometimes with highly trained professionals. There is no one best leadership style.
There is no one best leadership style. The most effective style depends on several elements, such as the ones shown on this slide.
Controlling is the process of assessing the organization's progress toward accomplishing its goals. It includes monitoring the implementation of a plan and correcting deviations of that plan. Controlling can be visualized as a cyclical process made up of five stages, as shown on this slide. Performance standards are the levels of performance the company wants to attain. These goals are based on its strategic, tactical, and operational plans. Effective performance standards state a measurable behavioral objective that can be achieved in a specified time period. Why is controlling such an important part of a manager’s job? It helps managers to determine the success of the functions of planning, organizing, and leading. Second, control systems direct employee behavior toward achieving organizational goals. Third, control systems provide a means of coordinating employee activities and integrating resources throughout the organization.
In every function performed, role taken on, and set of skills applied, a manager is a decision maker. Decisions fall into two basic categories: Programmed--made in response to routine situations. Nonprogrammed—decisions to infrequent, unforeseen, or unusual problems or opportunities Regardless of the decision type, managers typically follow these five steps in the decision-making process.

Leadership Principles Know your job: People will follow a competent person. Know what you do not know and take corrective action. Know yourself: Effective leaders know their strengths and weaknesses, and must recognize personal capabilities and limitations. Set the example: Must set the standard for positive conduct and appearance both on and off duty.
Leadership Principles Care for people: If people believe they are cared for, the leader is in a position to earn their confidence, respect and loyalty. Communicate: Up, down and across. Educate: People should be properly trained to do their jobs. Equip: Ensure team is equipped properly.
Leadership Principles Motivate: Greatest challenge is motivating people to achieve high standards--motivation is the force behind effective leaders. Goal: Leaders must provide an environment that fosters and rewards self-motivation. Accept your responsibility: Leaders are responsible for performing the unit’s mission--if the unit fails, the leader is accountable for the consequences. Leaders must have the authority to match their responsibility.
Leadership Principles Develop teamwork: Leaders must mold a collection of individual performers into a cohesive team which works together to accomplish the mission. Teamwork results when people are willing to put the mission before all else.

Secrets Of Successful Teams COMMUNICATION EXCELLENCE FOLLOWERSHIP UNDERSTANDING RULES STRENGTHS & WEAKNESSES FUN COMMON GOAL AND VISION APPRECIATION
“Successful Teams” Checklist Evaluation Is there communication between coach and players and from player to player? Is your team committed to excellence? Do those on the team know what it means to follow? Does everyone on my team know their specific role? Do the individuals on our team regularly operate out of their strengths as opposed to their weaknesses? Does our team take a break from time to time to just have fun together? Do we understand our common goals and vision? Can we all state it (them)? Is there a sense of and communication of genuine appreciation among my team?
Final Thoughts… Remember, there is no I in TEAM Peter Drucker said, “The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say "I." And thats not because they have trained themselves not to say "I." They dont think "I." They think "we"; they think "team." They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and dont sidestep it, but "we" gets the credit. This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done.”

A manager is a person in an organization who directly supports and helps activate the work efforts and performance accomplishments of others. The people who managers help are the ones whose tasks represent the real work of the organization.
Levels of management Top managers — responsible for performance of an organization as a whole or for one of its larger parts. Middle managers — in charge of relatively large departments or divisions. Team leaders or supervisors — in charge of a small work group of non-managerial workers.
Responsibilities of team leaders: Plan meetings and work schedules. Clarify goals and tasks, and gather ideas for improvement. Appraise performance and counsel team members. Recommend pay raises and new assignments. Recruit, develop, and train team members.

Time is a Valuable Resource, AMost Precious Commodity Every human on earth – Bill Gates, Barak Obama, and you – all have the same amount of time: 60 seconds in a minute 60 minutes in an hour 24 hours in a day Time cannot be saved or stored. It is not how much we have, but rather the way we use it. The bottom line is how well we use it.
The Heart of Time Management isManagement of Yourself. Time management is more than just managing our time; it is managing ourselves in relation to time. It is setting priorities and taking charge of your situation and time utilization. It means changing those habits or activities that cause us to waste time. It is being willing to experiment with different methods and ideas to enable you to find the best way to make maximum use of time.
Time Management is the Act ofControlling Events. Essentially everything we do requires time. Some events/activities are externally controlled: meetings, family obligations, work duties. Other activities are internally controlled: chatting on the phone, commitment to a club or project, or just “messing around.”
Good Time Management is: Setting smart goals that can be realistically accomplished. Establishing priorities. Assuming full responsibility for your use or abuse of the valuable resource known as time.
Challenges of Managing Time Do Not Create Impossible Situations: Attempting to work a full 40-hour week and taking a full academic load. Review your outside obligations. Examine each of these realistically as you prepare for each semester’s schedule.
Challenges of Managing Time Define your priorities All successful time management begins with planning. Use a weekly calendar and a daily “To Do” list. Write down all of the things you want to accomplish today, including personal activities such as phone calls and shopping. This list is a reminder. Use it to set daily priorities – what must be done today? What can wait? Write a new list each morning. Use it to visualize what you must do in that new day, providing focus for your day’s activities.
Challenges of Managing Time Avoid distractions and lack of focus Identify areas of wasteful use of time. Do you put off doing important tasks? If you do-That is called procrastination.
Challenges of Managing Time Are you overwhelmed by the current crisis of imminent deadline?3. Crisis management, or lack of, leaves no time for routine matters or enjoyment of the simpler things in life.
Challenges of Managing Time Are you plagued by lack of concentration and focus? This constant floundering could be offset by creating daily “To Do” lists and lists of weekly, monthly and long-term goals.
Challenges of Managing Time What about emotional blocks that interfere with academic success? These include boredom, daydreaming, stress, guilt, anger and frustration. These emotions can all reduce concentration in the classroom.
Assume Full Responsibility forManaging your Time Avoid a noisy or disruptive atmosphere when you study. Discipline yourself to limit “time monsters” like the telephone or the T.V. Establish priorities and do not let others distract you from completing your tasks. Sometimes you have to tell family and friends “no.” Keep your “To Do” list handy, and stick to it!
Time Management Please keep in mind that practice makes perfect. Try to make these time management tips part of your everyday habits.
