A manager is not always a leader. Are you a leader? Would your team run through a wall for you? Do you feel like you are out on an island? You may manage but do you lead? You should be asking yourself these questions daily.

If your goal is to lead your team to operate at the highest possible level, It’s Time to Step Up! will help you achieve that goal.

Frank Viscuso’s book Step Up and Lead was written to introduce firefighters to the essential traits and skills that every effective leader must possess. Immediately upon its release, Step Up and Lead became an instant best-seller and one of the fire service’s most frequently referenced leadership publications. Finally, this book, which has been referred to as the backbone of the fire service, has been adapted for leaders in all industries so they can learn and apply these same principles to everyday leadership. Strategy and tactics are not only needed when fighting a five-alarm structure fire. Sound strategy and tactics are also needed when motivating people, building morale, critiquing underperforming team members, mentoring new ones, delegating tasks, and making consistent progress as a team.
