Agency after agency diminishes passion and engagement by failing to take advantage of the connection and capabilities of their staff and those around them. “This is how we have always done it,” becomes the fallback mantra as our organizations remain stagnant; too busy supervising to remember how to lead. This creates an atmosphere that is resistant to change and prevents the true growth of the justice system, negating the needs of the victims the system serves. In such environments, people begin to feel like bystanders to their careers and circumstances, losing hope that a better way of doing things might even be possible. This presentation connects all the disciplines in the room under one umbrella of hope that guides the responsibility, possibility, and the passionate inevitability of change.
Individuals across any agency can affect such change regardless of their rank by leveraging their own skills and capacity for leadership. Everyone has the capability to engage their environment for the better, no matter the professional or personal roadblock. We will discuss inspirational leadership and business practices and how the justice system – and those within it – can create paradigm shifts to build trust and engagement within their organization and the community at large. Attendees will leave this session believing, “I can do it!”
As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:
- Identify areas for change within their own agency/life and how they can leverage their own skills and abilities to effect that change.
- Recognize how effective organizational leadership practices can translate into becoming a leader among peers, creating greater capacity for handling difficult situations with advanced communication, both personally and professionally.
- Explain ineffective practices among leaders and how a multidisciplinary response to issues and problems can create positive change for both the involved organizations and the community at large.
- Identify the benefits of effective communication and how leaders can use communication to become closer to a more productive workforce.
