Tuesday, November 19, 2019 - Georgetown Public Safety Operations and Training Center - Georgetown, TX

The belief that officers must have rank to be considered leaders is a myth that has hindered our profession for too long. Traditional leadership programs have focused on those who have already been promoted, but what about those who haven't? Some of the most effective leaders don't have brass on their collars or stripes on their sleeves. Leading Without Rank was designed to inspire officers to seek out leadership opportunities within organizations and provide the skills and motivation to influence behaviors of those around them and influence the culture of their organization.

We will focus on:

  • The differences between Authority vs. Influence
  • Inward Mindset vs. Outward Mindset
  • Planning for personal and professional development
  • How intentional effort leads to leadership success
  • Leading yourself and taking ownership of your actions
  • The art or Unconditional Respect

~Trainer, Federal Law Enforcement

After 27 years in law enforcement and 17 years as a Use of Force instructor, the instructor was able to fill in holes and depth to the knowledge already in place. No matter how long you have been behind the badge, find where this company is holding seminars and attend. Well worth the investment.
~Police Office, Tennessee

We received a full day of training on The Transformational Trainer. The high expectation product was delivered as requested. The instructor provided a tireless, and enthusiastic day of training that was much needed and appreciated by our Academy staff. We were looking forward to a receiving training on evaluating student scenarios and properly 'testing' student practical's- The class did not disappoint; the Think CLEAR model of feedback is a strong takeaway. Think CLEAR provides an objective and standardized response to students.
