I'm so excited to be joined by my friend Benjamin Martin for a conversation that I have been looking forward to having for a while. Today Benjamin digs into expectations and definitely makes some really great points. Setting expectations has always been a cornerstone of what I thought was required of all leaders but that for me has changed. Do yourself a favor and take the time to listen to this conversation, I promise that you will at the very least leave with several takeaways and quite possibly with a completely different perspective on the role that expectations play for us as leaders and why there are more important areas to focus on to accomplish the same thing (here's a hint - it's culture).

Lead by example, share what you have learned, and do good things.

When you did your early training, did you make a lot of mistakes? If so, you likely learned more from the screw-ups than anything else. It was a valuable experience. And hard to replace effectively. But my guest today says a lot of today’s younger firefighters are short-cutting that training— and missing the point—by using the internet. Benjamin Martin is a Captain with a large metro fire department in Virginia.
