ICLD I is the first leg of an educational journey designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to leadership, ethics, character, supervision, communication and self-development. It also serves as a complete review for students who have participated in leadership education programs previously.
ICLD I is based on the principle that all law enforcement professionals must lead within their scope of responsibility and must be given the tools to understand what leadership looks like, feels like and sounds like. It is designed to fill the void of leadership training which traditionally exists between entry level and mid-level supervision. ICLD I stresses the importance of understanding the true definition of policing and how participant’s actions and their organizational mission must align with that definition.
This curriculum introduces participants to the expectations and responsibilities of first-line and mid-level supervisors and the concept of “Leading Down and Managing Up”, through a detailed summary of two best-selling books.. It takes a comprehensive look at leadership and ethics, identifying the most common ethical dilemmas in law enforcement and how they destroy public trust and individual careers.
As with all Credible Leadership Phases, ICLD I faculty and video lectures by select instructors are proven experts in the field of leadership and Law Enforcement who understand the importance of every employee’s role within an organization and how to influence all for positive organizational growth.
