Chief Harry P. Dolan, (Ret.)What’s A Leader to Do: How Successful Leaders Get the Right Things Done!
As one of the nation’s most experienced police chiefs, Harry Dolan, places a laser-like focus on what specific leadership actions and traits have always led to success or failure when navigating challenging times. “We are not doomed to repeat history if we grow to understand that war stories may indeed be case studies. When combined with evidence-based research, these case studies contain valuable leadership lessons to be learned."

Attorney Matt DolanThe Cost of a Leader's Failure to Act: Hiding Problem People in an Age of Transparency
The temptation to tolerate poor performance and misconduct in a powerful one in most law enforcement agencies. The costs of confronting unacceptable officer behavior can seem high as they include inviting personal conflict within the organization and possible grievances and legal actions. But what is the cost of failing to address these personnel issues with the employees in question carrying a gun and a badge? And does that cost—to the organization in the form of legal liability and loss of public trust—become even higher in a time of unparalleled transparency?
In short—is it time that law enforcement leaders stop trying to hide, move, or shift away problem people and confront the problems head on

Dr. Jack EnterChallenging the Law Enforcement Organization: Proactive Leadership Strategies
The vast majority of law enforcement managers fail to consistently practice recognized leadership skills. Their failure to deal with problems, make decisions, and look after their personnel have created an atmosphere of distrust by staff of their supervisors and managers. As a result, the number one stressor in American law enforcement is not the operational danger most personnel encounter on a daily basis – but the men and women in their agencies who make emotionally based decisions – not principle based decisions.

Captain Brian Nanavaty21st Century Leadership: The Road to Excellence
Napoleon expounded that “a leader is a dealer in hope.” From the newly promoted supervisor to the agency executive, any leader who aspires to positively influence their agency, their officers, and their community must understand what leadership truly is. Leadership is about being an agent of change. Leadership is identifying your replacement and preparing the next generation. Leadership is leaving your agency better than you inherited it. Leadership is about instilling a culture of confidence and hope.
Albert Einstein was believed to have defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.” When it comes to the one-hundred year model of American Law Enforcement, does your agency and agency leadership push the envelope and attempt to change paradigms or does it do the same thing over and over again? To become an agent of change in our profession and in your organization you must be able to analyze the past, meet current challenges and anticipate future trends.
21st Century Leadership: The Road to Excellence is a thought provoking and hands-on primer for developing a comfort level with the art and practice of leadership at all rank levels that will prepare leaders to not only succeed but to also continue to evolve to meet new challenges. The Road to Excellence course is based on a leadership model and practice that has been recognized by the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing, the FBI, the Department of Justice, the Fraternal Order of Police, and the International Association of Chiefs of Police.

Upon completion of this course, participants will have gained insight into personal and professional strategies for designing and implementing an agency infrastructure and culture that results in the agency becoming a 21st century leading- edge organization.

Captain Brian NanavatyOfficer and Agency Wellness— Hiring and Retiring Healthy®
According to American Police Beat “somewhere between 2-6 times more officers kill themselves each year than are killed by the bad guys.” Thousands of officers are currently in crisis—experiencing trauma, family and financial distress, behavioral health challenges, substance abuse and other health issues. Employee wellness programs shouldn’t wait for crisis to occur, but should begin during the hiring process and continue through retirement. Both preventative programs and crisis intervention should be utilized to influence the professional and personal lives of employees and their families. When organizations identify healthy applicants and partner with health professionals to maintain employee health, these organizations have the potential to improve morale and productivity while reducing complaints and liability.
Officer and Agency Wellness—Hiring and Retiring Healthy© will introduce attendees to the innovative Indianapolis employee wellness program that US Attorney General Loretta Lynch has called “the model for law enforcement wellness.” Ground-breaking research and proven strategies to address officer distress from the Indianapolis Model© will be introduced in this course. These strategies are intended to aid agencies in reversing the trends of organizational paralysis that result in a failure to intervene as employees face personal and career crisis. Upon completion of this course, participants will have gained insight into strategies for designing an agency infrastructure that supports and maintains healthier employees.
