Course Objectives
Course Overview:
5 Day
Supervision, Leadership and
Management Conference
Course Objectives:

Q6 Performance Leadership Model: This is a comprehensive, dynamic, and integrated system for developing individuals, teams, and organizations to achieve higher levels of collaboration while improving the relationships of its members. It is a strategic system for leaders to help people maximize their performance by aligning personal and organizational goals while creating an atmosphere of mutual respect and creativity.
Q6 capitalizes on the collaborative energies, skills, values, and belief systems of those you lead to support organizational mission, vision, values, and goals. Properly taught and exercised, we believe it will engender an increased sense of ownership and personal responsibility for the organization’s success.

Supervising a Toxic Officer: There is nothing more difficult than trying to supervise an officer who dislikes everything about their career and wants to make the supervisor and everyone they work with miserable. These officers create an excuse for everything that happens to them and it’s always everyone else’s fault but their own. Toxic officers are normally non-performing or under performing and can be a great source of liability for the supervisor and agency.

Winning Leadership: Everyone wants to be a winner but regardless of what profession you are in, whether you are an athlete or a law enforcement supervisor, every great supervisor/leader has one thing in common - PRACTICE. This block will provide both new supervisors and longtime administrators with a daily practice “workout” to make them a WINNING leader.

Supervisors - “Why Are We Getting Sued”: Over the past decade, law enforcement has been confronted with increasing public scrutiny leading to litigation. One of the claims by plaintiffs’ attorneys is that the supervisor failed to supervise his or her officer, which created the officer’s negligence or misconduct. This block of instruction will provide you with the knowledge that every supervisor/leader should have to help prevent liability while also enhancing officer performance.

Investigating Citizen Complaints: Every supervisor has been confronted by a citizen who alleges that the officer has mistreated them, used poor language, or made sexual overtures and they want to talk to a supervisor. It is important for supervisors to know how to receive a complaint, properly investigate the complaint, resolve the complaint, or turn the complaint over to Internal Affairs.
Characteristics of Great Leaders: This block will explore how great leaders accept responsibility, show and get great work ethics, and set achievable goals.
