The Saint Paul Police Professional Development Institute (PDI) is co-sponsoring a course titled Navigating the Leadership Challenge.
“There comes a time in every man’s life when he is called upon to do something very special; something for which he and only he has the capabilities, has the skills, and has the necessary training. What a pity if the moment would find him unprepared.”
- Sir Winston Churchill
Navigating the Leadership Challenge (NLC) is not your typical leadership course. As you charge across the battlefield in Gettysburg in 1863, sink an entire naval fleet in 1940, and turn a failing business into a thriving enterprise in a time when the rest of the country is sinking into the Great Depression, you will gain the leadership skills and perspectives you need to navigate your way through your own, current-day leadership challenges. Navigating these challenges can be daunting, but with the right skills and framework, leaders can prepare for not just the day-to-day challenges associated with being a leader, but also for those moments that demand the most of our leadership abilities.
Are you prepared for those moments? Are you able to quickly shift your leadership style depending on the situation? Can you manage meaning in your communications when everyone else is looking to you for direction? When the obstacles and challenges are stacking up, are you overwhelmed or do you have the skills to turn those obstacles into opportunities? NLC can prepare you for all of this and more.
Perhaps most importantly, NLC provides leaders with a framework for making decisions in their leadership roles both on a daily basis and in critical events. Making a difficult decision doesn’t have to leave you second-guessing at two in the morning. NLC includes a self-directed decision making guideline for the worst critic of your decisions: yourself.
Developing leadership skills is an ongoing learning process. Navigating the Leadership Challenge is a 2-day course designed to launch life-long learning habits, the perspective necessary to extract leadership lessons from events all around us, and to trigger those applicable and personal “ah-ha” leadership moments in each of us, regardless of formal position or assignment.
