Leadership. Everyone in the Fire Service recognized how important it is. Often we complain when it's missing. We study management, strategies, and tactics but who actually works to build leadership skills.
Chief Alston does, and he leads but showing and working with others on building their leadership skills and style.
Chief Alston is a wonderful and articulate speaker. His presentations are powerful and very informative. Chief Alston's experience, knowledge, and innate ability to present information is at the highest level.
I had an opportunity to participate in Chief John Alston’s Leadership class. I considered it to be an outstanding class for seasoned as well as up and coming fire service leaders. I would recommend it to others...
Chief great job on your presentation and panel. You were right! Public Safety agencies have to break down the silos of information and start to communication in real time. Your comments to the panel were a breath of fresh air. Keep on with the good fight.
The course is and was amazing. During the weeks I have learned quite a bit about myself and where I’m exceeding vs where I’m failing. I plan to continue my growth and seek the guidance and wisdom from Chief Alston who has been the definition of a leader.
Chief, just want to thank you for an extremely enlightening learning experience. I know that's a mouthful but i continue to review my notes and exercises. I learned a lot about myself and how my status can change. Shout out to my new teammates. God bless u!
Chief Alston has done it again with this thoughtful, well written guide to “helping the helper.” Without getting too “psychobabbly” Alston brings insight to a topic that has become a huge issue for the fire service.
