Presentation Description

Civilian and Military Police units across all of the United States desire specialized leadership development training. PJ Welsh and Associates, LLC provides a Subject Matter Expert, immediately available with a curriculum already developed, specifically tailored and vetted to law enforcement personnel. The training consists of a three pronged approach of training and follow-up coaching. An agency can select all three prongs or just the single day training option.

This specialized training is specifically designed to focus on the following objectives:

  • Creating a proud mission-focused identity.

  • Building an environment centered on commitment, loyalty and trust.

  • Growing an agency or military unit that possesses leadership skills meeting the needs of both your personnel and Mission/Vision Statements.

  • Empower and equip your personnel with the culture changing skills needed to achieve peak performance, effectiveness and efficiency in delivering services.

PJ Welsh and Associates, LLC utilizes the cutting edge Strategic Leadership Assessment System (SLQ), designed by Dr. James R. Van Scotter II, PH.D., Assistant Professor of Strategy in the College of Business and a Daniels Fund Ethics Fellow at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs.

Inspired by Sun Tzu’s, Art of War principles, the SLQ survey, in addition to the traditional 360 measurement results, reports on six key dimensions of strategic leadership that are essential to law enforcement and are overlooked in all other existing leadership measures on the market.

Taking this survey and knowing the result, however, is not enough to pave the path of reaching our stated objectives.

A one to two day strategic work session will be conducted. This session will define and develop key warrior, servant and leadership principles that will be the foundation for the culture of excellence desired in your agency and military unit.

A 6 -12 month one-on-one coaching program is also available. This includes one hour a month personalized coaching session, via phone, to reinforce, encourage and address continued commitment to achieving stated objectives and where we will build on the personal and professional goals and skills unique to each participant to develop the warrior, servant, leader mindset at work, home and in the community.
