Data from a recent law enforcement recruiting and retention survey conducted within a major city police department suggests intrinsic reward is the strongest predictor of turnover. Simply stated, the feeling of making a positive difference in the world motivated officers to stay with the department. The more traditional motivators of pay, benefits, and job security were all mentioned yet intrinsic reward was the strongest.

What are we doing as leaders to harness the power of intrinsic motivation? This course will provide proven leadership concepts focusing on successfully leading the next generation of cops. This webinar will cover the following topics:

  • The Generational Gap
  • The Power of Purpose
  • How Good Leaders use Recognition to Motivate Employees
  • The Feedback Basics

Each topic is bolstered by actual case studies providing participants with real life examples and applications of the leadership topics.
