The Leadership Through Understanding Human Behavior (LTUHB) provides law enforcement leaders with a training vehicle that can help them develop more effective workgroups and teams. Participants will develop a better understanding of themselves, interpersonal dynamics, and how their strengths, weaknesses, and roles within workgroups and teams affect a mission's outcome. Participants learn how to adapt and capitalize on each other's strengths in order to have more effective mission outcomes. This program is can be customized based on the specific needs of the customer.

"Emotional intelligence" and "people skills" are competencies needed in every employee. Organizations that recognize the importance of developing their people in these areas benefit by having more productive working relationships, better outcomes, communications, less conflict, and enhanced personal satisfaction in their workgroups and teams. The first step in this journey is for team members to understand themselves. The program starts by developing emotional self-awareness and the ability to recognize behavioral styles in order to build relationships. As workgroups/members start to develop an understanding of  the strengths and benefits associated with behavioral styles and value systems, collectively they start to develop strategies to effectively to accomplish goals. This information can be used to establish more effective workgroups and teams by capitalizing on the strengths each individual brings to the group. More specifically, training can yield valuable information on the particular aspects of the team's development process.
