Franklin Covey : Diversity Centered Leadership

 

While we might think we see the world as it is, we in fact perceive it the way we are. Imagine an environment where professionals recognize the value of diversity and move beyond judgments and bias to become role models of cultural leadership and change. Embracing this concept is not only important in complying with the law, but essential for building a high performance organization.

The Diversity-Centered Leadership for Law Enforcement workshop teaches individuals to expand their perspective of diversity and become diversity role models for others. As a result of the training, participants: 1) understand the broad scope of diversity issues while being challenged to examine their personal behaviors and how these behavior affect success 2) gain a willingness to accept and promote positive change 3) learn the importance of leading ethically and with moral courage and 4) apply a process for identifying and breaking through their personal barriers to diversity.

Franklin Covey: Policing at the Speed of Trust

In his best-selling book, The Speed of Trust, Stephen M.R. Covey describes “the high cost of low trust” in terms of taxes. When trust is low in an organization, processes bog down, communication becomes guarded, decisions are put on hold while facts are checked and rechecked, and attention becomes focused on hidden agendas rather than on key objectives. Every consequence of low trust exerts a toll on your organization’s ability to succeed. Opportunities go by the wayside as clarity becomes clouded. Results become diluted and unpredictable, and those results that are achieved come slowly – at a high cost.
The good news is that improving trust is well within the grasp of most people, organizations and communities. Long perceived as a “soft” – or simply ignored – asset in the workplace, Franklin Covey’s Speed of Trust programs raise trust from a liability to a strategic advantage.

Community problems arise when community members have goals for change that are blocked by resource, administrative, or other problems. These problems may have a very negative effect on the quality of life in communities, and may also contribute to disorder. This course provides practical and pragmatic experiences that community members and law enforcement officers can employ to identify problems, find appropriate resources, and work towards problem resolution.
