Item Description...
Why are firefighters so universally valued? How is it that a home can burn to the ground, yet the owners still bring the responding firefighters milk and cookies, give them hugs, and tell them thank you? While much can be written about the fire service in a post-9/11 world, one truth is constant: their customers love them. Why is that? Are there lessons for leaders or managers that can be extracted from this profession and applied to general organizational life? What would your organization gain if your customers loved you, your products, and your services? Author and management consultant Kevin Baum explores these questions and more in Lessons from the Line. Adding his twenty years' experience as a professional firefighter and chief officer to his work with organizations around the world, Kevin drills into the unique profession of firefighting to build a practical tool for organizational and leadership development-the Firefighter Model. A unique blend of management and leadership practices, this innovative model can be applied to organizations of any size, with any mission, in any place. Lessons from the Line is a fast-paced, real-world look at organizational life from the firefighter's perspective that will give you the tools to create an organization of heroes.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Bravo Kevin  Jul 22, 2008
This is a must read for anyone looking for simplified yet dynamic lessons in leadership. Kevin makes the stories live in such a manner that you, #1 don't want to put the book down; #2 find yourself re-reading the lesson passages; and #3 think 'how simple yet powerful the message!' Power of Purpose; Dare to Care; Give up the Nozzle (my favorite); Tradition Matters; Sleeping with Failure; Dragon Slayer in You. You've got to read this book!!
Life Lessons From a Veteran Firefighter  May 9, 2008
I read Kevin Baum's tight narrative about life on the front lines as a firefighter in Austin, Texas, in two sittings. He's a masterful story teller, and each story offers a powerful lesson. While it's pitched as a book for managers, it actually offers inspiration to anyone who wants to improve themselves--whether in their careers or in life generally. It's a page turner well worth picking up--and is then tough to put down.
Inspirational Leadership for All  Apr 29, 2008
Finally an inspirational leadership book we can all relate to. As a U.S. Army veteran and a senior manager with a fortune 25 company, I can truly say this book is a must read! As employees, we seek leaders that have learned these lessons. As leaders, we strive to learn what motivates and inspires others, and here it is. Lessons from the Line is filled with powerful stories from a career Firefighter. The "lessons" are applicable in the boardroom, classroom, locker room, and yes, even the Firehouse.
Holy Smokes ...what a great read & leadership inspiration!  Apr 28, 2008
Yes, pun was intended ....this is a fire department education and you will enjoy learning what makes these great teams 'tic'. Very exciting story from page one but you come away with actionable examples of how to improve your own leadership style to how leadership influences our organizations success. I've shared this book with associates and it's a must read (and a very exciting one)for everyone operating in today's business world !!
