Earn Commitment and Improve Morale by Building Trust
Leaders often struggle to achieve minimal employee compliance, sometimes hurting morale in the process. Programs focused only on improving morale typically fail in the long run. This presentation provides attendees with a series of practical trust-building strategies to help improve employee commitment while at the same time improving morale and performance. Building a culture of trust and respect by using engagement, empathy, good communication skills, continual feedback, and even accountability, this practical trust-building strategy will yield results. Attendees will be given the tools they need to make deposits in their 'trust account' to help them get the results from employees that they desire and the public demands.
Giving Appreciation to Get Better Employee Performance
Appreciation is said to be the #1 employee performance accelerator. Unfortunately, too many leaders miss daily opportunities to improve performance and morale by ignoring small employee successes as they wait for major award-worthy events. This presentation provides attendees with a strategy that will improve performance and morale by regularly utilizing employee recognition. The overriding theme of this presentation is 'What gets recognized gets repeated.' Sincere and deserved recognition, regularly applied improves employee performance and morale. This presentation provides attendees with a variety of reasons why recognition might be given, and the different types of recognition available to them to achieve the best results.
The Challenges of Building and Re-Building a Police Organization
One of the most difficult endeavors a police executive can encounter during the course of their career are the challenges, pitfalls and successes of building and/or rebuilding a police organization. This presentation is geared towards small and mid-size police agency leaders that are starting a police organization from inception, or are rebuilding a law enforcement organization left in disrepair. This training is presented by an instructor who has actually experienced the challenges of both, and will share the positive and negative lessons learned of undertaking such a task.

Leading for Influence: It Matters What You Choose Each Day
A leadership position provides a person with power, authority and the ability to make decisions; however, the rank in of itself does not instill a desire in others to follow them. The only thing that does that is influence! Influence is obtained when someone trusts, respects and is willing to be guided by you. Not all people in leadership positions possess this ability and fewer understand its power or how to develop it. This workshop will explore the foundational mindset and behaviors that are linked to the ability to influence others. You will learn skills that will enable you to become more effective at work and in your personal life and leave with a new appreciation of how your daily choices affect your leadership.
The Science of Learning: Getting the Most Out of Officers and Your Training Budget
The sole purpose of training is to improve employee performance. However, studies indicate that 95% of training dollars are allocated to learning methodologies that don't improve performance. This session examines traditional learning and contrasts it with evidence-based methods that are founded upon the neuroscience of how people learn. Together we will answer the questions: Is training always the answer? What methods are proven to enhance performance? How can we make everyday a training day? We'll also present a training model that has been successfully rolled out in one state adhering to brain-based learning methodologies. It's time to think differently about how we are conducting training and spending our training dollars.
