About this event

Our presenter, Jan Spence brings practical, tangible takeaways to these monthly virtual sessions that will enhance your leadership skills. You'll leave with action steps you can use immediately to reduce your own stress, build a better team, and help your department grow. This session will focus on Leading and Engaging Volunteers and Employees within the fire service.

Do you struggle with how to keep employee and volunteer engagement levels high and consistent among your team? Do you have a solid plan in place with actionable steps that your leaders can turn to when they need to boost personnel morale? Jan Spence shares how pursuing her life-long dream of playing professional football led to the unexpected opportunity to affect change through encouraging words and simple actions. Applying her “Cheer Leadership” approach in the workplace builds stronger connections, increases employee and volunteer engagement and loyalty, fosters teamwork, and creates a positive department culture. In a time when employee satisfaction levels are plummeting and attrition levels are soaring, these invaluable strategies can assist leaders with helping and guiding their employees towards reaching their full potential.
