Leadership 2 x 4s” are those occurrences where something is brought to your attention about a lack of, or deficiency in, your leadership practices. These can be some of the most difficult wake-up calls you get. Most people in leadership positions take pride in their actions. But when you find out that your actions or decisions have had the opposite impact you were planning on, it creates stress and anxiety.

This is an article for Assistant Chief Amber Cline and Battalion Chief Tyler Untz for the Advanced Studies Class in Fire Service Operations and Leadership.  Read the article and you will see why it is for Asst. Chief Cline.
