First In, Last Out, Leadership Lessons from the FDNY

First In, Last Out, Leadership Lessons from the FDNY

The Fire Department of the City of New York is one of the most effective organizations in the world.  At the foundation of that success is an extraordinary code of leadership, one that firefighters sum up with the phrase “First in, last out.”  The officer is always the first one into the burning building and the last one to leave.  His people know that he’s at their side, sharing the danger – not barking orders from the rear.  There’s not tolerance for buck passing or finger pointing.  Join FDNY Battalion Chief John Salka as he shares some of the most gripping stories from his own career and those of his fellow officers on the front lines of the FDNY.  This is a lively no-nonsense program about commanding respect, motivating your team and getting the job done under extreme stress.
