In Your Element – Leadership
lessons from Fire and Emergency NZ
with Dr. Mark Long


By Louise Duncan

Mark shares some key findings from his doctoral research conducted with Fire and Emergency New Zealand which operates with a significant and highly trained volunteer workforce. In this 30 minute episode he shares more about the nature of volunteers and strategies leaders can use in promoting the worth, dignity and development of volunteers to foster unity and enhance safety. His study is enlightening.

Many of these strategies can apply and add significant value in a much broader leadership context, regardless of sector and status of the individual - be they volunteer or paid employee.
