Brief Overview:

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

Removing classic frustrations encountered by all law enforcement officers & the consequences of rewarding cynicism

How the dynamics of control and trust can negatively influence officer attitudes

How to lead and inspire those who have been taught to anticipate the worst in everything

Being an optimistic leader among a sea of professional pessimists

Overcoming the damaging effects of "the rule bound" and stoic approaches to the job

Recognizing the symptoms of stress and how police stress differs significantly from other jobs

Developing a personal and organizational action plan to confront the issues

Learning to help others overcome unhealthy organizational over-investment

Why officers are at greater risk for alcohol abuse, divorce, isolation, depression and suicide

Warning signs of distress and preventative programs to reduce  and monitor it.
