Performance Coaching: Building & Sustaining High Performance
Harry P. Dolan Chief of Police (Ret.)
This course is an examination of the dynamics of “Public Service Excellence” internally and externally within an organization. Emphasis will be placed on defining and applying service excellence skills including management of the agency’s moments of truth, identification of citizen expectations, and managing difficult customers and team members.
Today’s organizational leaders must have a solid understanding of performance theory, principles of motivation, high-performance coaching, and individual and team engagement.
