One Step at a Time

2020-10-29T18:13:23+00:00

I had a candidate tell me he went to an interview wearing a tie, suspenders and no jacket. I asked him, "Who did you think you are Larry King?" I a One Step at a Time I get a sinking feeling and my heart goes out to those who call and ask, what they can do after being eliminated. This is even after getting a conditional job offer. My question is why didn’t you call me before you went on to the next step? Often, the answer is that they felt things were going well. They did not think they needed [...]

After 40 years, We Know a Thing or Two

2020-09-06T15:48:58+00:00

After 40 years, We Know a Thing or Two After 40 years in fire service, we know a thing or two. Let's get started….. The written and physical ability are pass/fail. These tests are cut and dry. You either make it or you don't. There is no wiggle room. Why does this matter? Because 100% of the score to get a badge is in the Oral Board. Yes, you read that right. 100% of what matters is in your ORAL! This is where you go for all the marbles. Trust me on this. After being part of over 100 oral [...]

Luck is for the Prepared

2020-09-06T15:44:27+00:00

Luck is for the Prepared How many times have you thought about luck? What is luck? How many times have you felt that someone has had a better chance than you? Are some born lucky? After all, they earned their firefighter's badge while you are still working at it. Well, I call BS! There is no such things as luck. If you want the badge, then work for it. Success doesn't come naturally. A good result comes from being prepared! If you want the badge, work for it. Earn it. Let me tell you about Jim. He was a nice [...]

One-on-One Coaching Works

2020-08-21T14:03:55+00:00

One-on-One Coaching Works By the time I have finished one-on-one coaching with a firefighter candidate, he/she is more than ready to get off the phone or leave my house. You see, the truth is that the amount of information we go over can be overwhelming. As a result, our sessions are recorded, and the taped sessions become a great study guide. Here is why. Sometimes it is hard for some people to understand that what they thought was their “best stuff” gets shot down right out of the gate. One candidate wrote: You assisted me with private coaching back in [...]

A Seat at the Table

2020-05-29T15:05:43+00:00

A Seat At The Table In my 40 plus years in fire service, I have seen this as a constant question. And, a great question. WHO GET A BADGE? WHO GETS A SEAT AT THE TABLE? Let me tell you the cold, hard truth right here and right now. Getting this job has nothing to do with how great a firefighter you are. It has nothing to do with how great a firefighter you could be. It has everything to do with how ell you take the tests. Believe it or not, this is the truth. Is this right? Is [...]

Dreams Do Come True – When Prepared

2020-05-29T16:56:53+00:00

Dreams Do Come True – When Prepared Having over 40 plus years in fire service, I can brag and tell you that I know a thing or two. I hear from candidates every day about their struggles and difficulties scoring high enough to get the job done. With our program, we work to help them discover what is holding them back and what needs to be overcome in order to get them the badge. One candidate emailed me the following: I didn't realize how incredibly dead in the water I was. You see, I thought my answers to the oral [...]

It Can Happen F-a-s-t

2020-03-07T00:23:27+00:00

This is How Fast It Can Happen Things can happen fast. Let’s follow this recent candidate over a 2-week period to understand how fast. And, by the way - this candidate had never been to an Oral interview and was a non-medic testing against medics. Here is Pat’s story. From Pat: Hi Captain Bob: I just took my first interview with a multi-agency test after going through your audio/video program and coaching with your son, Captain Rob. I'm concerned. I was out of the interview after about 12 to 15 minutes for a scheduled 30-minute interview. I'm concerned something went [...]
