The role of the law enforcement supervisor and manager has changed since globalization and entry into the work force of younger generations. Effective leadership no longer subscribes to the autocratic, authoritarian form of leadership; but rather, a leader that attempts to adhere to the archetype of the servant leader instead. In today's rapidly changing world, the law enforcement manager and supervisor must become a partner, facilitator, cheerleader, supporter, and coach in order to be successful. As leaders, we must understand that the value of diversity becomes greater when each individual brings his or her unique experience, skills, and commitment to the organization and its mission.
Today’s law enforcement leader must be able to successfully use a variety of leadership styles depending on the task, mission, and individual. Situational Leadership® II (SL® II) can provide the law enforcement supervisor/manager with a variety of leadership tools that can enhance their effectiveness and success as a leader. This program teaches the leadership model developed by Dr. Ken Blanchard, and his colleagues at The Ken Blanchard Companies. The FLETC Leadership Institute Branch (LIB) and The Ken Blanchard Companies have collaborated to customize the program for law enforcement leaders and managers. It provides a unique opportunity for law enforcement professionals to not only refine their supervisory and leadership skills, but more importantly, to use SL® II to develop their people.
The instructors are current or former law enforcement professionals, certified by The Ken Blanchard Companies to present the program. These professionals bring a unique understanding of the law enforcement culture, and practical knowledge of how to meet the challenges that face a law enforcement supervisor in operational settings.
Applicants must be sworn law enforcement officers/agents or law enforcement support personnel employed by a federal, state, local or tribal agency or department.
