Preview the courses:
Jim DeLung, PhD
Comprehending the diverse generational communication styles is paramount for an effective organization. We discuss the four major generations in the American workforce: Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation X, & Millennials (Gen Y). We discuss the major characteristics of each generation and how to blend them effectively within the organization. We then discuss methods of motivation and communication for each generation.
Organizational Socialization and Culture
Jim DeLung, PhD
Participants discover the evolution of organizational culture through formal and informal socialization efforts, including their influence regarding workplace environment. Classroom discussion includes: socialization, culture, stories, rituals, symbols, jargon and more.
Keeping the Super Heroes Super
Kimberly Miller, PhD
Public safety professionals are passionate about serving others; however, this calling can take its toll. High stress, low sleep, dealing with the worst of society, and witnessing human tragedy reduces employees' mental/physical health. We will explore compassion fatigue, describe strategies to combat it and offer agency-wide interventions to build resilience and healthy coping in employees. Additionally, we will discuss the importance of ongoing selfcare, how to achieve more balance in your life and explain why it is essential to create a “life” outside of work.
Ethics: It's All About the Small Things
Kimberly Miller, PhD
The traditional focus of ethics tends to be on rules, laws, policies, or addressing big issues like inappropriate sexual relationships, cheating, or stealing. Although these are certainly concerning, the more frequent ethical compromises happen with much smaller issues that occur in the office everyday (e.g., surfing the internet, returning late from a break, turning in a sloppy or incomplete report, treating customers with disrespect, or not being totally honest on an evaluation). Many of these issues are accepted as “human nature” or dismissed as personality flaws when in fact these are unethical behaviors. While they do not rise to the level of significant discipline, each of these behaviors demonstrates poor character. This course will explore ethics from the most basic level (everyday decisions) and describe why it is the small daily choices that end up dictating how we respond to bigger challenges. We will also explore the importance of on-going character “maintenance,” explain why our mindset is a critical tool in ethical decision making, and describe why ethical compromises are easier to make than we think.
Chief Joe Monroe
Command staff never know when a crisis will need to be addressed in the media. They will be called upon to efficiently communicate crucial information with little room for error. We will discuss the importance of media relationship building, media room development, rolling out information, maintaining control of briefings, and much more. Through a series of media briefing examples from real-life, we will discuss best practices and strategies to ensure that you are ready to represent your agency and community well.
The Blood Does Not Lie
Dr. Jim Greenwald & Associates
The police profession is unnecessarily losing far to many police officers to medical conditions. We will focus on the identifying and understanding the Insulin Resistance (IR) condition that is so often under diagnosed. Police officers are in a particular high risk group but there is good news. Insulin Resistance is reversible with proper management. It is critical to understand that traditional lipid testing is severely underpowered at identifying the IR officer. The team will also go in depth about established Type 2 Diabetes reversal.
Leadership for a Lifetime: How the Past Prepares Us for the Future
This motivational presentation will cover what it takes to be a good professional and highlight the power of being a good person. It will illustrate how to take individual talents and apply them to the group setting to make an unstoppable and productive team. The ability to lead is present in everyone, regardless of their rank in an organization or irrespective of their situation in life. There are common characteristics that respected people and effective leaders share – most of these traits are developed by the individual rather than through the position they hold. We will cover some of these most important leadership traits, as well as how each individual can use the lessons of yesterday to overcome the challenges of today and capitalize on the opportunities of tomorrow.
