Leadership and Mastering Performance Management,
A Supervisory Mid-Management Seminar: Phase II
Leading Others

Finding appropriate, useful supervisory and mid-management training that truly impacts the competency, commitment and attitude and feelings of supervisors in the law enforcement arena is not easily done. This session focuses on the first line supervisor and mid-manager, to do just that. 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. Case studies and illustrations are included as part of the curriculum. [more...]

Further, as much as we may discuss and yearn for the way things were, we cannot turn back. However, not all that has changed as a result of Monell has been destructive or detrimental. In fact, much good has come from the many changes that have taken place within law enforcement, government and the insurance industry. While you may presently be searching to find some of that good, part of our role in this seminar is to focus not on our frustrations, (many of which we have little or no control over) but instead on the positive aspects of managing and leading liability reduction over which we do have control. We have far greater control over this system of liability than most of us realize, and better tools to manage and lead than ever before. [more...]
