Betsy Smith (ret.), the creator of the original “Street Survival for Women,” guides students through 7 hours of intensive, interactive training that will provide attendees with updates and information they can employ to improve and enhance both their professional and personal lives.

We begin each session by honoring the sacrifices of our fallen, celebrating the law enforcement profession and asking each attendee to inwardly assess their own career. We define a true “Winning Mindset” as we talk about the history of women in policing and celebrate our winners and role models. We then introduce gender-specific science and leadership principles that anyone can use to enhance their career and improve their life on and off the job. The multi-media format keeps students engaged and entertained while we provide officers, agents, dispatchers, trainers, supervisors, managers and all other personnel with a realistic view of gender differences and how these can be harnessed in both men and women to improve performance, morale, communication, relationships, and especially officer safety.

In a recent study by the Society of Human Research Management (SHRM), they discovered that individuals who were recently promoted to a leadership role faced three primary challenges.

Finally, new leaders found it difficult to identify and bridge their own skill gaps.

“Developing Effective Leaders” will address these challenges. This is an informative training that was designed to be beneficial to those law enforcement professionals who are new to their leadership role and a refresher for those professionals who are veteran leaders. This training was designed to be the foundational building blocks for professionals who want to develop into effective and ethical leaders.
