Course Summary:Ask any chief of police or sheriff and they will indicate that their greatest concern is the quality of their first line supervision. Each has learned in their own time that the most important link to their success as an agency administrator lies in the hands of the supervisor who may be running a shift or entire department in their absence. Given this fact it is remarkable how few skills we provide to our supervisors to provide direction to and develop their subordinates. That is the purpose of this seminar: to provide meaningful supervisory, leadership skills to the participant so that they can provide the proper direction to their people. To develop their people, as one leader stated so well, "until they don't need them anymore."
For all the complexity of what we do, two of the most critical leadership skills are those dealing with relationships and productivity of our teams. This seminar will identify how critical these two variables are to good leadership and then will skill build them. Tools are provided that will assist the attendee to work more effectively as a developer with their people, both as individuals and as a team.
This forty-hour session has been developed over a twenty-five year period of time by some of the best law enforcement instructors in the country. Beginning with an overview of the development of our knowledge of what leadership and management are, the participants will perform a self-analysis to determine their present communication and leadership styles. This evaluation will point out their strengths and weaknesses as leaders and assist them in preparing a personal development plan. There will be an emphasis placed on the leader as communicator, trainer and developer of people. Upon completion, attendees will better understand the need for assessment skills and how to use them to assist themselves and their officers to better perform their roles.
