Course Overview:

Crisis happens. Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity – VUCA (coined at the Army War College in the early 1990’s) is a sobering reality for police officers nationwide.

This workshop introduces “MAGNUS” as a General Leadership (Javidi, 2016) as a practical and tactical counter VUCA for enhanced officer performance, effectiveness, wellness and resiliency. MAGNUS Leadership expands the scientific application of the Theory of Things and Expectancy and Reversal Theories of Leadership activating positive brain and deep emotional intelligence. It outlines MAGNUS Leadership virtues and imperatives to ignite and/or accelerate transformational leadership mindfulness and practices to enhance officers delivering RESULTS with CONFIDENCE.
