Resources for leaders

The resources and materials on this page are for leaders to use in discussions with their teams.

This is one of the ways in which the FENZ Transition Project Team is supporting leaders to get, and keep, their teams involved and informed about this transition. Remember to check other parts of this website for more updates and resources, including fact sheets.

Please email us on if you are unable to download these materials, and we will contact you to work out a way of getting these to you.

The importance of leaders during change – Paul Swain, Board Chair

We are all building a new organisation – Fire and Emergency New Zealand. We need all of our people involved and engaged to achieve this. Leaders play a key role in helping teams during times of change. Teams want to hear from their leaders about this transition, and how it impacts on them.

Board Chair, Paul Swain, explains the critical role of leaders during change in this short video
