Leadership
Leadership is often discussed in the law enforcement arena and is viewed both as a skill or character trait and a formal position. All leaders, from chief executives of law enforcement agencies to the informal leaders in the rank and file, can benefit from sharing experiences and lessons learned with other leaders to improve their own capabilities, increase the productivity and morale of their staff, and better lead their agencies in a positive direction.

Followership: An Essential Component of Leadership
Followership and leadership are interdependent, and effective leaders and effective followers share traits. Skilled followers can develop more seamlessly into strong leaders of their organization; therefore, it is imperative that leaders provide their followers with the right tools and training to become, first and foremost, effective followers.
 
Stepping into the Role of Chief of Police: Guidance for New Leaders as They Find Their Way
Each new leader has an adjustment period in which they are discovering their own leadership style and finding their footing in their new role. However, while the skill sets and attributes personified in a leader differ from person to person, outstanding leaders are those who lead by example and engender trust within the organization.
 
Turning Around Problem Performance in Five Questions or Less
Most leaders have encountered an underperforming employee or team member during their careers. To effectively address underperformance, leaders need to understand its common causes, which can be accomplished by considering five yes or no questions about the situation and employee. The answers can guide the leader to the best-fit solution for each specific situation.
