Those standards must be consistently enforced. Sanctions must be consistent and proportionate. This cannot vary from supervisor to supervisor: overarching consistency must be maintained from workgroup to workgroup. This requires a systemic approach to handling what historically was left to individual supervisory and managerial discretions. The program demonstrates the need for organizational solutions to organizational problems and emphasizes proper roles and responsibilities of various member of the leadership team form first-line supervisors to administrators. this program is for law enforcement leaders at all levels, and especially including command staff.

Creating and Maintaining the "Well-Disciplined Organization"...Enhanced Leadersip Initiatives (WDO)

Classification : Specialized Training
Where : Hampton Roads Criminal Justice Training Academy
When : August 12-14, 2019
Description :
Time: 0700-1545

Being labeled a "Well-Disciplined Organization" is a high compliment and does not mean "well-punished." In fact, the need to use a lot of punitive discipline is indicative of a poorly disciplined organization. A well-disciplined organization is a place where people follow the rules, do what they are supposed to do, and refrain from doing otherwise. This program, then, is about motivating employees to do just that, utilizing a broad array of much focused organizational leadership initiatives.
