YOUR JOURNEY TO EXCELLENCE
The Fire Officer Leadership Academy provides you with opportunities to improve your leadership, sharpen your critical and creative thinking skills, and enhance your understanding of leadership concepts to develop as an ethical, proficient, and professional leader who makes sound decisions in non-emergency situations and complex operational environments.
In his book “Six Essential Elements of Leadership”, USMC Colonel Wesley Fox (1931-2017) wrote about the necessity of people learning leadership basics, and he asked, “where do they do that? Where does one acquire the art of inspiring and positively influencing others?”
For fire department officers, the answers to Colonel Fox’s questions and your journey to excellence begins with membership in Tailboard Talks. An online community dedicated to raising the bar on your leadership performance.
As a military and fire service veteran, Rick Davis, founder of FIRE OFFICER LEADERSHIP ACADEMY, brings over 40-years of leadership experience to guide you through solving your organization’s challenges. Rick’s passion for adding value and helping others is accomplished through speaking, teaching, and coaching professionals to create “fired up” teams that get results.
