Description:  FBI LEEDA Training  Executive Leadership- Meridian


The FBI-LEEDA Executive Leadership Institute (ELI) is an innovative 4 1/2-day program

leaders, as well as planning and navigating the political waters of executive leadership.

This highly interactive program follows the FBI-LEEDA “cops talking to cops” model of professional development where students engage in guided leadership discussions with instructors and other students. The course first looks inward to identify the forces of change and emerging trends within law enforcement, such as the challenges of recruiting, hiring and leading different social generational cohorts and different cultural groups within the workforce.  The ELI also presents leadership strategies that emphasize the importance of public trust and legitimacy, officer wellness, social and emotional intelligence.
