Description

We are living in a rapidly changing world! As culture changes, it is crucial for leaders to adapt to this new dynamic. Public Safety professionals live with volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA) daily. The scrutiny and criticism pitted against law enforcement today is unprecedented creating increasing stress on law enforcement professionals around the world. GREAT is no longer good enough. This workshop makes the argument that there is a “next” for GREAT leaders. The “next” is to become MAGNUS because the new normal mandates this leadership progression.

Sponsor

The Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System (ILEAS) was formed in 2002 in response to the September 11th attacks as a joint venture of the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police, the Illinois Sheriffs’ Association, and the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA). We were created to meet the needs of local law enforcement throughout the State of Illinois in matters of mutual aid, emergency response and the combining of resources for public safety and terrorism prevention and response. We are a consortium of over 900 local governments established pursuant to the Constitution of the State of Illinois (Ill. Const. Art. VII, sec. 10), the Illinois Intergovernmental Cooperation Act (5 ILCS 220/1 et seq.), the Local Governmental and Governmental Employees Tort Immunity Act (745 ILCS 10/7-101 et seq.) and the Illinois Municipal Code (65 ILCS 5/11-1-2.1).

ILEAS has come a long way since its post 9/11 birth. When it was first created, there was no staff, only the beginning of a Governing Board and minimal participation by police and sheriffs. The laudable efforts of the first few individuals that formed ILEAS, Sheriff Jim Olson, Deputy Chief Pete Smith, Chief Deputy Gary Stryker, Chicago Police Superintendent Terry Hillard, Illinois Terrorism Task Force Chair Mike Chamness and many others resulted in the creation of ILEAS and the first Governing Board formed. From those early days when only a few agencies were members, ILEAS now boasts a membership of hundreds of law enforcement agencies, representing over 95% of the officers and deputies in Illinois.

Magnus Leadership Practices

We are living in a world that is rapidly changing.  Leadership and supervision must adapt to this new dynamic by practicing MAGNUS principles to realize results with confidence.  Turbocharging leadership capacity at a personal and organizational level produces a culture of accountability and star performance promoting a sense of safety and support within an organization.

Magnus practices are designed based on scientific research on human moral development, as well as tried and true practices of a MAGNUS  leadership. Promoting self-awareness, accountability, psychophysical responses to relationships and positive intelligence, as well as the latest research on promoting healthy workplace environments changes employees, which changes organizations.

Magnus practices provide foundational leadership principles coupled with scientific practices that build connected cultures and promote well-being.

Ethics

Ethics pervade everything law enforcement professionals do daily, weekly and throughout one’s career.  Building effective cultures is not easy, but can be accomplished when intentional.  Understanding the role that ongoing ethics training, incorporated into all organizational training and processes, is essential, but often lacking in organizations.

Professional organizations must be willing to commit to continuous improvement, the research is clear, become stagnant and pay the price.  Character is perishable and must be built daily, MAGNUS practices provide the ongoing improvement necessary to be the best.
