Weekly Drill: No. 152 - Motivation

Drill #152: Motivation

Many fire department leaders are being challenged today to motivate their firefighters. Readers will learn about Maslow's Pyramid and the five levels of needs that all individuals seek and how you, as a leader, can help them achieve their goals.

The drill is designed to be a single page of information to conjure up discussions among your crew members. Sit down and talk about the exercises, and how they may apply to your company. But, just don't read them. Get moving. Head to an appropriate area and train.

Post the information in prominent places in your stations so it's readily available for review.

Please remember to check your Standard Operating Procedures or Guidelines (SOPs/SOGs) before using the drill.
