Corley Moore: ‘If you’re not having fun doing this job, you are doing it wrong’

The battalion chief talks passion for the job, fighting complacency, empowering your leaders, and the difference between being right and being effective

It’s another high-energy, passion-fueled podcast, as Battalion Chief Corley Moore joins Zam and Janelle to dissect fire service culture, toxic leadership and how to fight your way back from complacency. Chief Moore – founder of Firehouse Vigilance and host of the Weekly Scrap podcast – details his own evolution from struggling with complacency to now serving as a motivational speaker and instructor.

We dig into all of this:

  • Moore’s empathy for burned out, complacent members
  • The origins of the “The 9L’s: Keys to High Performance Culture,” plus Moore’s favorite “L”
  • The scene in the movie “The Break-Up” that exemplifies intrinsic motivation
  • Finding balance between being right and being effective
  • The power of having a plan because “luck and hope are not strategies”
