This chapter discusses one of the greatest responsibilities of the emergency services leader, the growth of their followers. It’s ground in a willingness to want to see followers change and grow, so that one day, they can also assume leadership roles. The servant leader serves the needs of their followers in a way that positively impacts their mental, physical, and emotional health. These three areas work together. The successful leader realizes that neither stands alone. The healthy follower becomes less vulnerable, realizing posttraumatic growth. The emergency services leader that commits to the growth of their followers does so with an understanding that such growth reduces vulnerabilities associated with traumatic experiences and protects them from burnout.
