Everyone is Leading - Motivating Today's Leaders for Tomorrow's Challenges
Course Description:
Leadership is definitely not about rank, position or title. Leadership is about action and interactions. Leadership is about doing what’s right, not what is popular. Perhaps the most important lesson learned is that everyone in an organization has the ability and sometimes the obligation to lead. Our specially designed leadership course provides proven techniques, and methods to become a successful leader no matter your position or title. With over three decades of real public safety experience in various leadership roles, we have seen what unsuccessful leaders can do to a team, and we’ve also learned what characteristics make a great leader. This exclusive course provides each participant with a renewed sense of identity, purpose, and skill. A true leader must build and maintain excellent interpersonal skills to establish themselves as someone people will trust. Leaders can build and earn trust through positive actions and demonstrations of support, guidance, and real honesty.
