Advanced Leadership Development for Command Staff

The success of the existing Tools for Tolerance® for Command Staff program has led participants to request more in-depth and hands-on training in Values-based leadership.

  • Why Don’t People Do What They Know is Right?
  • Closing the Knowing-Doing Gap
  • Non-Defensive Leadership
  • How to Have Tough Conversations
  • A Leadership Language that Builds Trust Across Cultures

This program is P.O.S.T. certified.  Tuition is sponsored and travel is reimbursed via P.O.S.T. Plan IV.

Tools for Tolerance® for Supervising Line Staff

FPO

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. The first-line supervisor is an extremely challenging position. Drawing upon the models of the current Tools for Tolerance® for 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.

This class is open to sergeants, field training officers, and civilian supervisors. The program runs 8 hours including a lunch which is provided. This program is P.O.S.T. certified.  Tuition is sponsored and travel is reimbursed via P.O.S.T. Plan IV.

The objectives of this program include:

1. Identifying the structural and personal challenges inherent in the position
2. Emphasizing the role of character in leadership
3. Examining the differences between ego and self-esteem
4. Understanding the role of popularity in leadership
5. Having an opportunity to practice new skills through roleplay

Curriculum includes:

1. Identifying Challanges (Internal and Structural)
2. Balancing The Need:  Maintaining strong relationship with subordinates  and representing senior management
