Have you been a firefighter for awhile? Are you interested in advancing your career? If so, Effective Supervisory Practices, 5th Edition, can help you in preparation for a supervisory position within the department. This helpful tool is also designed to help current supervisors become even more effective managers. Effective Supervisory Practices, 5th Edition, covers several important concerns pertaining to supervisory and managerial practices in the field of firefighting.

Role of Supervisors

Depending on the needs of their fire department, supervisors fulfill several important roles. Effective Supervisory Practices, 5th Edition, outlines these roles and provides indispensable advice for fulfilling them in the office and the field. As a firefighter in a supervisory position preparing to take on advanced roles in the department, this book will help you handle these roles like a professional.

Effective Leadership

Firefighters in supervisory positions are expected to be leaders among their peers in the fire department. Therefore, it's important to learn the ropes of supervisory positions by consulting a study manual that focuses on leadership training. When you provide excellent leadership, those you lead are poised to step up and give their best effort.

Employee Expectations

Supervisors often have many expectations for themselves but may not be familiar with the expectations that employees place upon them. Effective Supervisory Practices, 5th Edition, helps supervisors rise to meet the expectations of employees while they rise to meet your expectations. Meeting employees' expectations is essential for gaining their trust and confidence.

Assisting Employees

How supervisors will assist them is a major concern of employees, and different types of employees need different types of assistance. For example, new firefighters often need more practical guidance in the field than veteran firefighters. The chapters in Effective Supervisory Practices, 5th Edition, will help guide you in providing the right type of assistance to employees.

Performance Appraisals

Performing appraisals of firefighters is one of a supervisor's main administrative duties. In addition to determining whether firefighters qualify for advancement or demotion, performance appraisals tell them the areas in which they excel and those in which they can improve. Correctly appraising their work is essential for helping people become better employees.
