Join us on January 12 for “Flow-based Leadership: What the Best Firefighters Can Teach You about Leadership and Making Hard Decisions.” In this presentation, Dr. Glick-Smith will discuss the main points of her new book by the same name.
Wondering about “the flow”? Think of an activity you love to do, where time stands still, and you are lost in the activity. This is called “flow.” Studies have shown that people are more productive,Â engaged, and results-oriented when they are able to maximize their flow states. Flow-based leaders facilitate flow for themselves and for their teams.Â This presentation describes a framework for flow-based leadership, which is based on the leadership model of the Georgia Smoke Diver program, an extreme, experiential training program in the fire service for structural firefighters. Implementing this framework aligns the activities of the organization with long-term goals,Â engages its people to get results fromÂ the work of the organization, and prepares the organization for the unexpected challenges in today’s volatileÂ business environment.
