This training will help gain a distinctly different perspective on the unique and potentially problematic consequences of performing well within a law enforcement culture. Executives, managers and supervisors will examine better ways to reduce their stress and simultaneously garner greater staff compliance with department standards. Leaders will address stressors encountered by the rank and file which influence the pivotal balance between professional and personal relationships.
Emphasis will be placed upon executives, managers and supervisors, developing leadership practices and policies that recognize and encourage accomplishment of organizational goals while also taking better care of themselves and the people who serve under their leadership.
Topics will include:
Inspiring a new generation of Knights
Examining the Need To Be Needed
