PURCHASE CREDIBLE LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

ICLD 1 Foundations and Principles - $250

The Institute for Credible Leadership Development (ICLD) is based on the principle that all law enforcement professionals must lead within their scope of responsibility and must be given the tools to understand what leadership looks like, feels like and sounds like. It is designed to fill the void of leadership training which traditionally exists between entry-level and mid-level supervision.  ICLD I stresses the importance of understanding the true definition of policing and how participant’s actions and their organizational mission must align with that definition. You will be introduced to the expectations and responsibilities of first-line and mid-level supervisors and the concept of “Leading Down and Managing Up,” through a detailed summary of the best-selling book, “It’s Your Ship: Management Techniques from the Best Damn Ship in the Navy”, by Captain D. Michael Abrashoff, and the powerful publication by IAPS “Moral Compass for Law Enforcement Professionals”. It takes a comprehensive look at leadership and ethics, identifying the most common ethical dilemmas in law enforcement and how they destroy public trust and individual careers.  ICLD I instructors and guest speakers are proven experts in the field of leadership who understand the importance of every employee’s role within an organization and how to influence all for positive organizational growth.

ICLD 2 Theories and Practices - $350

Instructors in ICLD II illustrate several meritorious examples of organizational leadership success and introduce participants to methods and rationale behind these highly successful best practices.  This course of instruction features segments from leadership giants John Maxwell, Tony Robbins, Howard Schultz, Jeff Canter, Sheriff Ray Nash, General Stanley McChrystal and many more. The curriculum includes summaries of the best-selling books Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire, by Simon Sinek, Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap and Others Don’t, by Jim Collins, and It’s Our Ship: The No-Nonsense Guide to Leadership, by Captain D.

The content of ICLD IV was researched and field tested for over a period of more than 30 years in university and justice and public safety environments including police, corrections, customs, immigration, homeland security, and private security. It is based on the breakthrough book titled, Every Officer is A Leader: Coaching Leadership and Learning in Justice, Public Safety and Security Organizations (Revised 2nd Edition). The course was filmed at LAPD and piloted in collaboration with Deputy Chief Mark Perez and his Team of Leaders at the Los Angeles Police Department. This highly competent team was carefully selected to be able to demonstrate the skills involved in Credible Leadership throughout the course.  The breakthrough of this course is that officers are now able to take self-responsibility for mastering the 60 Skills that enable them to perform the 40 Tasks and Responsibilities that research has revealed are critical for leadership success in justice and public safety. Never before has professional leadership been so well-defined and distilled so that it is easily and quickly learned. The course is a research-based, online, performance enhancement learning process that equips leaders to express more empathic caring, be more ethically conscious, and more capable of developing themselves, other leaders, teams and organizations.
