This is an experiment. I would like to engage a number of police officers in the topic of leadership. To be a forum. A dialogue. To help you become an even better leader or to prepare you to step into leadership.
Over the years, I have learned some things and shared them on this blog site. What has been lacking is a dialogue, and exchange. So, I am using Google Classroom to begin our adventure.
In it you will become acquainted with current literature outside (and inside) the filed of policing. New ideas. Old ones, too– which have stood the test of time like the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu, who in the 5th century, b.c.e. wrote:
Leaders are best
When people barely know they exist
Not so good
When people proclaim and obey them
Worse when they despise them
But of good leaders
Who talk little
When work is done
Their aim fulfilled
People will say
“We did it ourselves!”
