Emergency Services Leadership: A Contemporary Approach offers a comprehensive view of the historical developments of leadership models, presents a variety of leadership theories, and explores how various theories apply to current emergency services leadership roles. The authors address how leadership has evolved from the theories of “position and authority” to more contemporary approaches in which leadership is expressed in terms of influence relations, servitude, risk agencies, and transformational change agents. Best practices for making ethical, compassionate, and competent leadership decisions are also discussed. The ideal introduction to leadership concepts in modern-day emergency services agencies, Emergency Services Leadership: A Contemporary Approach is appropriate for EMS, fire services, law enforcement, emergency management, and military courses and is an ideal resource for department-specific training programs, especially for officer development. The authors weave personal experiences, interviews with current emergency services leaders, and leadership points to ponder throughout the chapters. End-of-chapter activities allow readers to explore their leadership capabilities and apply concepts presented in the text. The author team brings their extensive experience in emergency services, military application, and leadership research to this text. All of the authors are involved in higher education levels and serve in leadership capacities in various arenas.

Are leaders morally special? Is there something ethically distinctive about the relationship between leaders and followers? Should leaders do whatever it takes to achieve group goals? Leadership Ethics uses moral theory, as well as empirical research in psychology, to evaluate the reasons everyday leaders give to justify breaking the rules. Written for people without a background in philosophy, it introduces readers to the moral theories that are relevant to leadership ethics: relativism, amoralism, egoism, virtue ethics, social contract theory, situation ethics, communitarianism, and cosmopolitan theories such as utilitarianism and transformational leadership. Unlike many introductory texts, the book does more than simply acquaint readers with different approaches to leadership ethics. It defends the Kantian view that everyday leaders are not justified in breaking the moral rules.

We live in a world where CEOs give themselves million dollar bonuses even as their companies go bankrupt and ordinary workers are laid off; where athletes make millions while teachers struggle to survive; a world, in short, where rewards are often unfairly meted out. In The Ajax Dilemma, Paul Woodruff examines one of today's most pressing moral issues: how to distribute rewards and public recognition without damaging the social fabric. How should we honor those whose behavior and achievement is essential to our overall success? Is it fair or right to lavish rewards on the superstar at the expense of the hardworking rank-and-file? How do we distinguish an impartial fairness from what is truly just? Woodruff builds his answer to these questions around the ancient conflict between Ajax and Odysseus over the armor of the slain warrior Achilles. King Agamemnon arranges a speech contest to decide the issue. Ajax, the loyal workhorse, loses the contest, and the priceless armor, to Odysseus, the brilliantly deceptive strategist who will lead the Greeks to victory. Deeply insulted, Ajax goes on a rampage and commits suicide, and in his rage we see the resentment of every loyal worker who has been passed over in favor of those who are more gifted, or whose skills are more highly valued. How should we deal with the "Ajax dilemma"? Woodruff argues that while we can never create a perfect system for distributing just rewards, we can recognize the essential role that wisdom, compassion, moderation, and respect must play if we are to restore the basic sense of justice on which all communities depend. This short, thoughtful book, written with Woodruff's characteristic elegance, investigates some of the most bitterly divisive issues in American today.
