Presentation: This is a highly interactive and scenario-based course that allows the attendees to
develop their leadership skills in a supportive environment with their peers and also
with a modern leader who has 22 years of Principled Leadership experience with the
education to coincide with it. Attendees are taken on a descriptive journey of seven
identified characteristics to build a foundation and then are provided interactive team
building activities to highlight the specifics of each characteristic. Following this, group
activities are utilized where leadership challenges are presented to the class, and each
specific group must utilize the concept of Principled Leadership to guide them to a
decision. These scenarios are based on challenges from emergency scenes, personnel
issues, stress management issues, and a host of other scenarios from real life situations.
