Servant Leadership: A 21st Century Prerequisite for Success

With various generations in the workplace today, promoting and fostering an inclusive environment is the expectation and not the exception. The style of autocratic leadership died years ago and the only people who still practice it in the workplace are not aware of that. For persons in positions on authority, practicing servant leadership is the key to organizational success.

Motivating The Modern Generation: Making the Most of the New Work-Force

They may seem to have little respect for authority, a poor work ethic, and no interest in “paying their dues”; but things aren’t always as they appear with the next generation. While they may not respond to some traditional motivators, these kids today are smart, energetic, and driven when you lead them with the right techniques. This program presents emergency service leaders with the tools to leverage the strengths of the modern employee for the good of the organization and to integrate into the existing workforce of Generation Z, Millennials, Gen Xers, and Baby Boomers.
