To have a high-functioning, effective district, it i is critical for the executive director and directors to understand and appreciate their distinct roles. This presentation will discuss the district roles of a board’s fiduciary responsibility and governance and the executive director’s roles as the organizations senior lead and manager.

In EMS, there are a lot of type A personalities who like to take charge. What I’ve learned over the years is leadership is not a position; it’s an action we take and it can be performed on any level, whether you’re an EMT, Paramedic, or Chief. To inspire others through motivation and influence, we can be good leaders for our department. This session will go over some great attributes of a leader and help you understand leadership on all levels. It will also each you how to recognize leaders within your department, so you can assist in their growth and development. In addition, we learn how to be outstanding leaders for our department and some of the common leadership mistakes that can be made. We will also go over the difference in a manager and a leader, and inspire managers to become leaders.
