Dr. Prince points out that this course is about changing the entire organization. That happens sequentially: first by understanding human interactions, then about effectively leading one on one, how groups of individuals function most effectively as teams, and how a series of teams ethically led create a healthy internal organizational culture whose services and reputation are worthy of community trust.
This course is not intended to be theoretical; it is designed to be deliberately applied in the real world with real people using contemporary challenges in need of creative solutions. The foundation of the course is about understanding human behavior, including your own, and learning to lead people more effectively in a dynamic environment.
General Howard Prince and Dr. Mitch Javidi met with Chief Larry Hesser, Dr. Mike Alexander, Stacy Lenz of WI DOJ, and Jim Franklin of the MN Sheriffs Association at the BJA School, UT Austin at July 16, 2019 to seek their input and support for developing this version of the course since they have been teaching the original content in their agency with support from General Prince.
