  1. As a Fire Department Company Officer, how do I develop a Firefighter who has been on the job for 22 years and still doesn’t get it?! He doesn’t want to learn and his peers can’t trust him in an emergency. His previous CO has let him down by not holding him accountable and now it’s my t urn to train and motivate him to perform. Any advise on how to make this happen?

    1. Performance management. Your top performers are picking up the slack for him and that’s not sustainable. If you haven’t already, establish the standard. Inform him that he is well below the standard and has a set period of time time to improve (30 days). When he fails to meet your standard. Terminate. Most likely a bad hire to begin with.

  2. Excellent Podcast Jocko and Echo, I’ve been listening to you guys for a couple months now crazy how the Lord above works in mysterious ways this podcast happened to land on today the day I’m celebrating my daughter’s birthday she’s turning 5, Echo I can totally relate with you I also have a boy that just turned 2 this last October, I teared up myself we are all so fortunate to have this gift of life keep it up guys
