During these uncertain economic times when organizations are asking staff members to do more with fewer resources, developing an operational tempo where people perform in a highly effective and collaborative manner requires senior leadership to think and act differently, says Michael Palazzo, president of Leadership Advisors.
“We must focus our time and resources on developing strategies to deal with the challenges of law enforcement today and in the future,” Michael Palazzo says. “By 2014, a significant number of law enforcement commanders will be transitioning in retirement and transferring command responsibility to the next generation. Leaders today are making strategic plans to prepare for the stability of their communities by developing leaders who will be prepared for the challenges ahead.”
Michael Palazzo will be facilitating an agency-wide leadership workshop for Hawaii County Police Department to help shape the thinking and planning process. As part of a national speaking tour in the United States in this year and next, the chief executive of Leadership Advisors will present a series of town hall-style meetings to empower and inspire leaders to develop a plan for succession and organizational effectiveness.
“Public safety has traditionally operated from a reactionary posture and not a pro-active mindset,” says Michael Palazzo. “Community partnerships and problem solving dialogues require different approaches that are discussed in our training seminars. Measuring our results based on our governing values requires that we clearly and definitively establish who we are and what we value, individually and organizationally.”
“I am committed to supporting those who put their lives on the line for us each day. Developing leaders requires that we treat team members as our partners in success,” says Michael Palazzo.
