First In, Last Out: Leadership Lessons From the FDNY

firstinlastoutWhat does it take to lead people into a burning building? How do the leaders of the New York City Fire Department develop so much loyalty, trust and grace under pressure that their subordinates will risk their very lives for them?

As a high-ranking officer of the FDNY, John Salka is an expert at both practising and teaching high-stakes leadership. In First In, Last Out, he explains the department’s unique strategies and how they can be adopted by leaders in any field – as he has taught them to organizations around the United States. In a tough-talking, no-nonsense style, Salka uses real-world stories to convey leadership imperatives. Illustrated by harrowing real-life situations, the principles in First In, Last Out will help managers become more confident, coherent, and commanding.
