Employee engagement is extremely beneficial to any workplace. But what does it really mean for the law enforcement profession, where suicides occur in greater number than on-duty deaths? It means that managing for employee engagement is not only beneficial. It is essential.

This high-impact one-day workshop is aimed for law enforcement leaders interested in learning how to build a more resilient agency. It gives managers a framework and practical tools to engage, motivate and retain employees by addressing primary causes of job misery. 

Studies show, an employee's relationship with their direct manager is the most important determinant to employee satisfaction, more than pay, benefits and work-life balance. Managers willing to make the commitment will learn how to create a working environment that enables employees to maximize their potential and:

  • Find fulfillment and passion in their work 
  • Show more attention to detail and quality
  • Collaborate effectively with the colleagues 
  • Develop a sense of ownership and pride in their work 
  • Assist in areas outside of their own responsibility 
  • Stay within the agency (thereby, reducing turnover)
  • Help attract other quality employees


Tuition includes all instruction and handouts. Lodging and meals are excluded. Course is limited to 35 participants.

  • $125 ILEA member
  • $150 Non-member
