Course Objectives

While some individuals appear to be born leaders gifted by a combination of personality traits, physical characteristics, and a nurturing environment, real and effective leaders come from all walks of life and socio-economic backgrounds. The Marine Corps is famous for having recruited, tested, developed, and deployed leaders for over 200 years with success in providing first line supervision from the shores of Tripoli to the tribal areas of rural Afghanistan from a diverse American public whose only common trait was their desire to serve a cause greater than themselves. Similarly, law enforcement leaders have risen from the ranks by being mentored by senior law enforcement leaders who helped them to find their voice and to express a vision of servant leadership that has made American law enforcement the most effective and democratic model of policing the world has ever known. This course draws upon best practices of first line supervisors from various walks of life to prove that leadership excellence is attainable for today’s first responders in public service willing to challenge themselves to lead others from the front.

Course Objectives

At the completion of this course, class participants will:

  • Understand what true leadership resembles in a real-world environment.
  • Gain an understanding of their own strengths and weaknesses via the DISC personality assessment, while learning to appreciate others’ unique capabilities and growth areas.
  • Recognize how different generations of Americans desire to be led in the workplace.
  • Appreciate the appropriate use of power in providing first line supervision in policing.
  • Assess their own roles in how they intend to inspire a shared vision within their units.
  • Recognize how paradigms have both aided and thwarted change initiatives throughout time and in unexpected manners.
  • Learn that the concept of time management is fine as a starting point towards organizing resources, but remains the most fluid of concepts in the ever-changing and oftentimes unpredictable world of law enforcement and criminal justice.
  • Leave this course with a renewed commitment to the importance of both adhering to and providing an environment dedicated to ethical leadership of ourselves, our subordinates, the communities we serve, and of our families that support us in this, one of the most demanding and rewarding of professions we in policing knowingly refer to as “The Thin Blue Line”.

Highlights

  • Servant Leadership is brought to life with vivid examples of what has proven over time to serve as unchangeable successful leadership practices.
  • Understand what your natural strengths and talents are and how to build upon them to be a more effective leader.
  • Gain an appreciation for what each generation brings to the workforce and how to leverage those strengths to achieve win-win solutions for employees and for the organization.
  • Accept that power is best exercised by those who gain the willing participation of subordinates in the achievement of organizational goals.
  • Realize that shared visions are a product of the adage that “all politics is local”, and that paradigms that challenge the status quo may appear to threaten local interests.
  • Recognize the need for planning/training and embrace the fact that law enforcement is a fluid environment that requires a flexibility approach to time management principles.
  • Acknowledge that only with ethical leadership can organizations, relationships with the public, and self-actualization of first responders find a path to success.
