Step 5: Assess Your Leadership Skills

Battalion Chief Paul Lepore

Along with the benefits of a promotion comes responsibility. Some firefighters are simply more cut-out to be leaders, and some are content serving the department the best that they can. Either way it takes a team to make a department great. FireLink has a great assessment tool to help you sort out your leadership skills with an evaluation quiz. Take it, see how you do, and remember to send it to your friends as well.

Congratulations, you are on your way to a promotion. Good luck!
