This impact on organizational values and culture is tied directly to leadership.

(10:00 AM) Leadership Concepts (2hrs): This class will discuss leadership in terms of theory, definition, traits and characteristics and then examine law enforcement leadership through the lens of the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership found in The Leadership Challenge by James Kouzes and Barry Posner.

(1:00 PM) Wellness & Resilience for Law Enforcement Leaders (4hrs): This class discusses the various stressors and challenges in law enforcement, and will assist the law enforcement leader not only identifying these stressors but also devising an action plan so they can develop a culture of wellness and resilience for themselves and the organization.

Webinar – Making Discipline Stick – Session 1
Oct 26 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

The following webinar, sponsored by Local Government Risk Management Services, is approved for 3 executive hours:

Making Discipline Stick 

The vast majority of citizen complaints and internal acts of employee misconduct encountered by government agencies are generated by a small number of problem individuals. Unfortunately, research has revealed that when disciplinary actions are reviewed by an outside source (i.e. grievance arbitrator or civil service board), public sector discipline is overturned or reduced about half of the time.

► Address the few “bad apples” in your agency who are responsible for the majority of citizen complaints and internal acts of employee misconduct.
► Identify the 5 most common reasons arbitrators give for overturning a public agency’s employee discipline
► Make discipline STICK in order to hold employees accountable and give much needed “wake up calls” before performance issues become so serious that termination is required or public safety is threatened.
