Of the many and varied communication skills required of law enforcement managers, we choose to emphasize the basic competencies of interpersonal communication, group presentations and how the manager functions in the formal setting.


Leadership

We approach this block with the mindset of leading from anywhere within the organization, with a focus on the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership as developed by Kouzes and Posner.


Motivation and Achievement

A leader's Emotional Intelligence forms the foundation for their effectiveness as a leader and this concept is explored and applied to self-motivation and the ability to motivate others.

Project management skills allow the leader to logically identify law enforcement issues, gather and analyze information regarding them and develop a team project response to address the problems.
