The New Patterns of Leadership
The old, traditional patterns of leading criminal justice organizations no longer work. The changing values and motivations of employees, coupled with the nearly constant state of transition found in many law enforcement organizations today, require a different set of leadership philosophies, styles and skills.
This two-day (16 hour) course, designed for managers, supervisors and potential supervisors, will introduce participants to the contemporary leadership philosophies and concepts necessary for effective leadership in today’s law enforcement and criminal justice agencies. Topics covered in the course include, developing a clear and compelling purpose or vision for their unit, aligning that vision or purpose to the overall department mission and developing a high performance team. In addition, participants will also examine methods and strategies to raise the performance bar and will identify techniques to more effectively manage the multi-generational workforce. The course is highly interactive and emphasis is placed on the practical application of the covered material.
The course has been delivered to personnel from well over 175 criminal justice organizations located throughout the western United States. Numerous California probation departments have previously utilized this class to enhance the leadership skills of their personnel. (STC Certified)
