Leadership Style and Coaching Workshops

Build strong, sustainable brigades: Strengthen leadership skills

Strong leadership skills are key to us working together to deliver essential fire and emergency services in our local communities. Enhance vital life skills at an interactive 2 day UFBA Leadership Workshop. Strong leadership is also needed to drive positive change in our culture, to maintain a brigade that is respectful, inclusive and supportive. You don't have to be a current brigade leader to benefit from this course, as content can support aspiring leaders or culture change champions.

These workshops are FREE to attend for brigade members and your accommodation and travel are funded (terms and condititons apply).
