  • These first 12 skills were based on the art of living and working effectively with a purpose. It requires the personal mastery of continually clarifying and deepening our personal vision and focusing our energy in a balanced way. All of these are required to have a good foundation for us to be successful in our lives and at work. Frankly this has nothing to do with being a leader, it’s skills/principles everyone should have in life to be their best selves and living their life to the fullest and happiest way. As a leader however, these skills are essential for us to be successful since others rely on us.

    I think skill #9, time-management, made a great point that people who work as first responders generally are in a reactive environment at work. They respond to calls. They can be proactive if/when they want, but generally it’s just what comes across their CAD for the day rather than a full case load with no instructions of how to do anything or when. Prioritizing tasks and creating a plan seems like a good way to make the transition from front line worker to a supervisory position.
