Though the American criminal justice profession has made significant strides in the development of management training, many agency representatives are not seeing significant changes in the effectiveness of men and women who attend this training. Why is it that supervisors and managers will give often glowing reviews of a leadership training course yet they don’t seem to be able to bring the principles into their daily contact with personnel and staff? Most personnel surveyed estimate that only 10 percent or less of their supervisors and managers have a consistent ongoing positive impact on the agency culture. What is causing most of our managers to fail?
This webinar will examine this issue and offer some suggestions on the causes of these failures, as well as offer practical ways that individual managers and the agency can minimize these problems and create a positive leadership environment. Some of the topics included in the program include assumptions or principles that are the foundation behind why most managers fail to be consistent leaders. A major emphasis of this program, however, will be the skills, beliefs, and techniques of those few managers in the law enforcement organization who defy the odds and consistently exhibit leadership traits in the agency.
