This session will present an approach to improving chief officer performance by detailing numerous things chiefs can do to become better fire chiefs. A PowerPoint program will introduce the ways of understanding, introducing, and managing their skills and abilities as fire chiefs within the fire service. This project has been undertaken for extremely important reasons. Change has been identified as one of the primary issues facing the fire service. A review of the literature indicates that in many instances, fire chiefs are not operating as efficiently as possible, owing to lapses in judgment, leadership skills, and management operations.
