Effective leaders are those who can and do change their management styles to
meet new challenges--every day, for every situation. This case study
focusing on Matt Diggs, president of the rust-belt industrial Copeland
Company, provides analysis of what qualities define a manager with impact.
Throughout the work day, various meetings with department heads and support
staff exemplify how effective management is achieved (at all levels) by task
analysis, objective recognition and choice of the correct approach--the most
suitable management style--to attain the goal.

LSSU's dedicated three-story fire lab made all the difference to Brian Applegate.
"Our certification training classes offered real situations," Brian says. Students practice victim search techniques while controlling and extinguishing fires. Applegate says his favorite exercise was the live fire flashover simulation. "We saw how fires evolved as they burned," he says. "It’s as close as you can get to the real thing."
