The Leadership Principles contained in the pre-course work are derived from L-280, Followership to Leadership
Apollo 13 illustrates an abundance of leadership values and principles – especially an emphasis on team cohesion. During the movie, you should have few problems identifying those that correspond to the Wildland Fire Leadership Values and Principles. The objective is not to identify every leadership principle but to promote thought and discussion. You should be less concerned with how many principles you view within the film and more concerned with how the principles you recognize can be used to develop yourself as a leader.
Students will identify Wildland Fire Leadership Values and Principles illustrated in the movie Apollo 13.
Part 1: Obtain and view Apollo 13 in its entirety. This movie has received excellent reviews as a leadership primer.
Part 2: Document instances within the film that illustrate the Wildland Fire Leadership Values and Principles on the handout provided.
Bring your completed responses to class. Be prepared to discuss your findings and how you will apply the leadership lessons in your role in wildland fire suppression.
