Dare to be Great: Leadership Strategies for Tactical Officers

It is easy to get caught up in the negativity of today's media and the rhetoric from the small, but very vocal special interest groups who would like people to believe the lie that all cops are thugs, racists and murderers. You have a choice however, you can:

a) Embrace the Suck, Find the Good and Dare to be Great, or

b) Allow the suck to embrace you and become one of the whining, sniveling malcontents you always complain about.

As a tactical officer you are a role model to others in your agency, your community and the law enforcement profession so it is critical that you choose to Embrace the Suck and Dare to Be Great.

Dare to Be Great is a philosophy focused on growing the courage to embrace excellence, punch mediocrity in the mouth, say no to the status quo and strive for greatness in your life, your training and your agency. Greatness is a choice you have to make every day and a life long journey. This seminar will give you tools and strategies to help you on that journey as well as challenge you to think differently about greatness and what it means to Dare to Be Great.
