The primary objective of the Daniels College of Business Public Safety Leadership Development program is to further develop public safety emerging leaders in our local communities. Participants will gain insight into their personal style, capabilities, strengths, and weaknesses and in turn understand their team’s capabilities, strengths, and weaknesses. Emphasis will be placed on developing leaders and understanding team dynamics.
Collaboratively built in 2008 and fine-tuned by input from multiple agencies, this program combines world-class faculty with personal assessments, leadership exercises, analytical assignments, and challenging activities to provide a life-changing experience. The PSLD program was reviewed by the Colorado Peace Officer Standards and Training Office and there are funding options available for small and remote agencies through POST.
Led by experienced business school faculty and public safety leaders, this program provides:
- Access to some of the world’s best resources in business education and leadership development
- Increased visibility into areas of personal strength and insight into potential areas for growth
- Tools to develop and maintain stronger peer relationships and information to help with current challenges
- Education to improve team organizational performance
- Exposure to best practices in a variety of subject matter areas to assist in dealing with business and operational situations
Course delivery details
This program compresses the very best content and resources into five days of immersive learning. The first session takes place at The Nature Place, where participants will be removed from their day-to-day lives and immersed in the program. The Nature Place is a comfortable mountain retreat and conference center located on a 6,000 acre privately owned ranch, one hour west of Colorado Springs. Visit www.thenatureplace.net for more information. Sessions 2 and 3 will be either virtual (fall) or in-person (winter and spring, as University policies allow). These sessions include both individual participation and group/team work. The dates and assignments are strategically spaced to allow participants to apply what they have learned and to return to the team with stories of success and insightful questions, further customizing the program as it progresses. The final session, which occurs on site, includes a graduation ceremony where supervisors and leadership teams are invited to attend.
$2,000 for Police, EMS, and Fire, and Peace Officers. This program fee includes all program materials, lodging and meals offsite. Transportation is at your own expense.
In conjunction with POST there are opportunities for sworn peace officers to attend through the use of a grant. This grant is tailored towards rural and remote areas of Colorado. This program is POST reviewed. Participants interested in pursuing grant funding should contact Kimberly Hernandez at Kimberly.Hernandez@coag.gov for eligibility requirements.
