Women in Law Enforcement Leadership Training Program (WLELTP)

Up one level

This program is designed for women in federal law enforcement who desire to further develop their leadership skills.  It is a career development tool that provides a unique opportunity to view leadership principles from the female law enforcement professional’s perspective. The courses in this program are tailored to concentrate on issues and challenges common to female leaders in law enforcement specifically:   Gender Differences, Work Life Balance, and others. The program will facilitate open, candid discussions and exercises to identify and develop approaches to deal with common issues and challenges.   

The Knowledge, Skills and Ability competency areas include leadership skills through understanding and adapting to human behaviors, communication skills, team building, situational decision-making skills, and emotional intelligence. Taking into consideration life and work experience, participants will explore these topics and develop skills by means of an adult learning model that employs lecture, practical exercises, case studies and self-directed learning.  During the program, distinguished law enforcement executives will lead a panel discussion on participant-selected law enforcement leadership topics.  This program addresses competencies needed to be effective as a leader in the law enforcement community.
