Leadership Initiatives for Command Staff
|Tools for Tolerance® for Supervising Line Staff
Both command and line-level personnel often remarked that one of the most influential groups of people in an agency is the first-line supervisor. They have the ability to influence how policies and procedures are perceived and applied. However, first-line supervisors also find themselves in the unenviable position of being sandwiched between the great expectations of leadership and perceptions of power and accountability from subordinates. As new leaders, they have to forge different relationships with individuals who used to be colleagues within an environment of limited authority. Drawing upon the models of the current Command Staff program, this presentation assists supervisors to gain expertise in certain leadership skills and to infuse those skills in a para-military organizational structure.
