This course, with practical exercises, will teach the core principles needed of every leader from new recruit to chief. Leadership is not a rank; it is the ability to take people somewhere. We break down this ability into:

1. The Character of Leadership,
2. The Vision of Leadership, and
3. The Accountability of Leadership

Organizations that are built on a foundation of leadership have better esprit de corps, higher performance, clearer goals and communication, and are more resilient to the challenges in an increasingly dynamic world. The attendee will learn from real life examples, practical application, and lessons from historically great leaders and teachers.

• Develop a core competency of leadership skills that translates department wide
• Acquire tools for clearer communication and instructions
• Inspire courage and moral authority
• Create and chart a leadership vision
• Create and lead a culture of accountability
• Acquire tools for building resilient organizational structure and actionable planning
• Lead with real humility that inspires others to be continually improving
• Be the spark of initiative and creative problem solving for those you lead
• Learn to utilize and understand timeless leadership principles such as the Paradigm Effect, DISC personality assessment, and SWOT analysis
