About This Webinar

Join Chief Kevin Hardwick and Chief Eddie Buchanan for the What’s Your Attitude? webinar on May 27 at 4:00 p.m. ET, brought to you by the IAFC’ Volunteer & Combination Officers Section.

Today’s leaders are bombarded from the bottom and above. The amount of stress we are dealing with can impact our attitude. How do you stay positive and avoid the path to becoming Mr./Mrs. Negativity?

Our presenters will discuss how they have sustained a positive attitude while dealing with all the challenges of being a fire chief. Tips on how to handle stressful situations will be shared by experienced chiefs who have been there and done that. We will discuss how your attitude at work can impact your attitude at home. Join us for an informative, interactive webinar!

- How to remain positive during challenging situations
- Benefits of a positive leader
- How positivity improves retention
