ICLD 3.4 Authentic Leadership (POST # 09053-00601)

Authentic Leadership

This module gives an introduction to the concept of the Authentic Leadership which is leading in accordance with ones’ values, preferences and needs as opposed to simply leading to please others.  Why is this so important to law enforcement leaders at all levels?  Simply put, law enforcement professionals are approached from all directions from individuals and groups that will challenge their authenticity, particularly when it comes to performing their duties.   This module stresses the need for Authentic Leadership and cites some of society’s ethical and organizational failures, as well as security breaches as just some of the reasons that Authentic Leadership is a must in order to instill community and public trust.
