Barn Boss Leadership: 1 - 8 hours                                      

This is a toe-the-line, white board, candid conversation on leadership. Barn Boss Leadership is a
unique blend of fire, science, psychology and fire service history provided by an speaker who has
worked in the largest of metropolitan to the smallest of volunteer departments. True Leaders
develop their power long before they receive a promotion. This session is designed to provide a
guide and self-awareness gut check for individuals of all ranks. However, the emphasis of our
discussion is for the informal leader in the organization, who is the catalyst for action. This
presentation is for the individual who considers mastery the minimum standard.

Transitional or blitz attacks have been taught around the country as a mode that indicates
transitioning from a defensive to an offensive mode of attack in most cases. This situation
typically is taught as a defensive attack beginning on the exterior of the structure, then
proceeding to an offensive interior attack. Although controversial in nature, this presentation
proposes that transitional attack terminology should be removed from the fire attack teachings.
Offensive and defensive modes of attack should not be based on a geographical location;
however, it should be based on the intent of the tactical assignments given.
