In law enforcement one thing is certain, crisis will happen! Breaking down each crisis to understand the volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity is a philosophy known as VUCA. Viewing the police environment from the VUCA perspective is empowering and an essential skill for police officers nationwide. In simple terms, VUCA is chaos. Today the professional LEO must recognize VUCA and mitigate VUCA to minimize disruptive and destabilizing effects on himself or herself and the organization. The MAGNUS Leadership workshop, led by Dr. Mitch Javidi and his associates since 2016, does just that. This workshop provides practical and tactical counter VUCA strategies for officer effectiveness, wellness and resiliency. MAGNUS Leadership is based in the science of Reversal Theory, Moral Philosophy and Cognitive Intelligence. The MAGNUS Leadership workshop is receiving overwhelming response from agencies nationwide.
