This course is aimed at current and future leaders, specifically non-sworn personnel. This two-week seminar held in two one-week sessions is the third of three parts in the Civilian Leadership Series. It can be taken independently or in conjunction with the other sessions.

This course is designed to prepare senior-level managers and executives for leadership in the complex world of public safety administration. The academic experience prepares individuals to take part in:

  • Myers-Briggs and CPI 260 Assessments
  • Writer’s Workshop
    A course designed to enhance writing skills for police managers. It will include a basic review of grammar and syntax in commonly experienced writing situations. This program will also utilize a number of practical exercises for effective writing in memoranda, reports and project assessments.
  • Effective Meetings
    This instruction will help students develop strategies and techniques for effectively planning, organizing, and conducting meetings within their workplace.
  • Employee Engagement: Strategies for Building Motivated, Resilient and Invested Teams
    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 employee engagement is not only beneficial. It is essential. This high-impact one-day session 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.
  • Social Media Management
    Social media use is exploding. Learn proper etiquette that can protect you from devastating consequences. Put ethics first and learn to do the right thing when you use social media.
  • Public Speaking
    This course of instruction will provide opportunities for the development and enhancement of public speaking skills. It will also familiarize participants with a variety of instructional media, and the means for crafting and outlining an effective presentation. Learning in this area is intended to be highly interactive, with feedback from both instructor and classmates comprising a significant element in the growth process.
  • Contemporary Issues in Civilian Leadership
  • Reality-Oriented Personal Experiences/Team Building (ROPES)
  • Reset the Clock
    This block of instruction will provide participants with specific, practical advice on how to minimize the risks of day-to-day management; foster a harmonious working environment; and protect your department and personal assets.
  • Servant Leadership for Law Enforcement Organizations
    Servant Leadership is a principle-centered approach to personal and organizational leadership. This philosophy has been widely adopted throughout the business community because of its focus on people at all levels of the organization to build harmony, cooperation, teamwork, and a customer service ethos.
