Event description
Reality-Based Strategies for Leadership and Career Development of Line Officers.

About this event


Understanding the Law Enforcement Culture and Managing Officer performance is an important part of Policing in the 21st Century. Effective Coaching is an important addition to a law enforcement supervisor’s arsenal of skills. The ability to listen and help others achieve their personal and organizational objectives is a critical competency in today’s law enforcement profession.

This 8 – Hour Class provides reality-based principles and strategies for First-Line Supervisors.

Coaching skills can be applied across the organization at all levels, whenever goals are established and people need assistance in achieving them. “Our people are our most important asset” is not a trite slogan; it is a fundamental truth. People make your organization, and people who are world-class learners make your organization great.

Leadership starts at the top but it doesn’t stop there. Everyone in the agency/department can develop the skills needed to lead! This class provides reality-based principles and strategies for first-line supervisors who want to make a difference by encouraging and inspiring line officers to achieve personal and organizational goals.

If you are looking for a supervisory class that focuses on the need-to-know “how to” rather than the nice-to-know theories, this is the class you’ve been waiting for!
