Illinois Fire Service Institute


Leadership Development and Decision Making

If you are a fire service leader who is willing to embrace the challenge of personal and professional leadership development, the Leadership Development and Decision Making (LDDM) program provides a one-of-a-kind training experience. As a student, you will be immersed in topics through a Socratic teaching style that features highly-interactive, small group discussions, ethical and moral discussion groups/decision games, tactical decision games, sand table exercise/discussions, and practical application exercises. Each student is challenged to reach outside of their comfort zone through discovery learning, rather than the classic lecture and directed learning format.
