Dare to Be Great

September 6 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm



Dare to Be Great is a philosophy focused on growing the courage to embrace excellence, fight mediocrity, say no to the status quo, stop chasing best practices and strive for greatness in your life, your leadership and your organization. Now, more than ever, we need courageous leaders who are committed to the pursuit of excellence in their own lives and committed to inspiring greatness if the men and women they serve in their organizations. Greatness, like leadership, is a choice and a process. It takes time, it takes work and it takes commitment. The benefits however, are significant and are well worth the time and effort.

This engaging, interactive and reflective workshop will explore a series of questions to help you on your journey to becoming a great law enforcement leader. Dare to be Great builds on two guiding questions and three foundational rules, which will serve as a guide for making courageous, ethical decisions. The emphasis in the workshop is to move away from unproductive questions such as, “Who is to blame for this?” and shift to growth questions such as:

  • What piece of this do I own?
  • What did I as a leader learn from this experience?
  • How can I as a leader, and we as an organization grow from this experience?

While you will leave with strategies and tools to help you be a better leader, the goal of the workshop is for you to walk away with more questions than answers. It is the process of working through those questions that will help you on your journey be the leader your family, your personnel, your agency, your community and the profession need you to be, and deserve you to be.

Course length: Dare to Be Great: The Leadership Challenge is an 8-hour workshop taught by Brian Willis, an internationally recognized expert on the leadership in law enforcement.
