Walking the Narrow Road to Leadership

Hours: 8
Tuition: $95

Program Information:

The law enforcement profession is continuing to face significant challenges in its operational and organizational roles.  Unfortunately, one of the more pressing issues facing American policing may be the failure of its supervisors and managers to consistently practice recognized leadership principles that they learn in management training programs.  Most managers seem to take the “path of least resistance” when dealing with problem employees or in communicating with employees.  This “wide road of mediocrity” is believed to be the primary path of most managers and these leadership failures have become a significant form of stress and frustration for the law enforcement culture.  This program examines why these problems occur, and the practical methods that law enforcement managers can use to become effective leaders.

**Cancellations for this class must be received by SLEA 35 days prior to the start of the program in order to avoid being billed!**
