Course Detail: LELA_IS - Law Enforcement Leadership Academy: 2-day Foundation/Introduction to Supervision
This course offers a brief but powerful introduction to tools and perspectives that drive successful leadership in the law enforcement context. It is targeted toward sworn officers who have been newly promoted to a supervisory role, those who are considering applying for promotion, and those who seek to continue to grow their skills in leading others.

Content includes skills development around making a successful transition from peer to boss; decision-making; difficult conversations and resolving conflicts; the difference between leadership and authority (and why it matters); and performance reviews. Additionally, participants will explore the connection between personal strengths and leadership competences and will hear from experienced law enforcement leaders about motivating and leading others in today's law enforcement environment. Each participant will leave with an individual action plan that identifies a path forward in their development as leaders who will contribute to the success of their agencies.

This 2-day course can be taken before another LELA program as an introduction, after another LELA program as a refresher, or as a stand-alone foundation to build leadership competencies.
