Chums to Chief
The most common mistake new managers make is that they
think they’re still “one of the gang.” They think they can talk
and act with rank-and-file employees the same way as before,

pitfalls and things to avoid as you are being promoted up the
ranks of the fire service field. Participants will learn how to de-
velop the skills necessary to thrive at their new position within
the fire department.
