Deputy Chief Bailey Graduates from Executive Training Program

Posted to Around Town - A Community Blog by Gail Folkins

Deputy Chief Mike Bailey recently graduated from the Seattle Fire Department Executive Leadership Academy (ELA). The ELA program is a partnership with the UW Foster’s School of Business and focuses on leadership and change management. He and 30 other future leaders from around the region met over the course of 9 months while studying leadership topics such as leading adaptive/transformative change, fostering positive team dynamics, and authentic and inclusive leadership. The ELA group also met with large private industry leaders to collaborate on leadership topics and worked in teams to present solutions to contemporary fire service issues such as creating feedback loops and (app) solutions; diversity, equity and inclusion practices; and recruitment, retention and hiring. Congratulations, Chief Bailey, on this achievement! Mike Bailey receiving diploma (2022).
