Tom-Pandola-July2013-BootcampIf you think actions speak louder than words when you’re heading a team, you are right. And now here is an action-packed plan to empower your organization and the people in it to produce success like never before.

A 25-year veteran firefighter, Tom Pandola of Third Alarm, a speaking, training and consulting company in Tahoe City, will relate to you the secrets of turning desperate fire-fighting and rescue leadership principles into a brand of business teamwork that can transform not only productivity, but morale, motivation, communications, accountability, work ethic, loyalty, and pride.

In other words, he’ll show you how to turn yourself into a great hands-on business leader.

What inspires, and what doesn’t.

Mr. Pandola quickly learned at the start of his career there is no place for empty words and platitudes in the smoke and ashes of people’s burning homes, burning businesses and personal misfortunes. Not when lives are at stake and actions have critical consequences. A firefighting team has to think as one, and each member must be geared to a single end result.

To create a mindset for achieving a common goal, every individual must be taught to believe his or her job is critically important. A culture of cooperation must override everything else.

If your business were in flames, would you call a meeting?

What you will discover at this transformational bootcamp is how to think and think faster. How to create heroes where there were only employees. How to believe in your own organization’s inevitable success — and when you do, you will get to watch your passion rub off on others.

You can make this happen. And in fact you must make it happen.

If you believe you cannot, you surely can’t. So don’t come on July 27. But if you understand that the world of business is changing and that your best chance to prosper in the future lies in driving that change, don’t wait to see what happens. Make it happen now!
