This is definitely something for the inspectorate, senior leadership and Home Office review to take note of. How are you going to feel, when you do not fit in? If not now, when? A key function of leadership is about the willingness and tenacity to investigate the lessons that often exist when we fail, but which we rarely exploit, and is key to driving high performance. To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: Perhaps part of the issue with poor leadership at the moment is a lack of encouragement for leaders to have their own vision. To support your learning and teaching, the University will be introducing a service later in the year which allows for the recording of class-based activities which students can play back online via Blackboard.
Through using their own practical knowledge and experiential expertise alongside the knowledge from the individual with the lived experience of that situation. Change is unsettling but is the new constant and effective leaders recognise this and support staff through the change. Nevertheless, this comment struck a deeper chord and spoke of the disconnect between the front line and the police service nationally and the sense of why we exist. Academics, by considering their analysis alongside a range of other works usually the type of literature that the researcher can relate to in their specific area of interest derive new concepts and theories. In the end, this type of flexible decision-making will contribute to the successful implementation of the decision.
This however takes courage in the leader. As always, we want to reflect the debate in the right way. We must also ensure that any assessment of this knowledge is conducted at the right academic level, and is of use to professional police officers.
The question was also asked whom we were talking about when it comes to leadership. The capacity of leaders to listen and observe. Leadership is about making everyone else better.
What are you going to do? They were mostly internal, and sometimes being the relationships with managers. New emerging technologies, artificial intelligence, the disruption to the traditional ways of working, and emerging threats are already here or just on the horizon. Each police force has its own unique identity, personality and vision.
This is often how expert knowledge is translated for the practitioner and therefore applied in practice. New neighbourhood policing model has left some like myself with no line management due to Sgt rank being stretched to breaking point. In December I tweeted that I was thinking of writing this blog — aimed at unpicking the term expert. Would they see the problem from a different view point?
Power and privilege is another key influencing factor in the conversation about expertise. Outstanding leaders allow people more freedom and influence over the work they do. The general opinion was that good leaders are seen to operate with fairness, consistency, operational competence and most of all compassion.
Leaders know that celebrations and rituals, when done with authenticity and from the heart, build a strong sense of collective identity and community spirit that can carry a group through extraordinarily tough times. Till next time…be different or least let people be different, it gives a different view…. This happens in policing and in academia and indeed in politics.
Such methods do not encourage social justice and can create limits on the type of longer term considerations really required to both understand and subsequently, address the issue.
This limits learning, reflection and real thought about what ticking these boxes actually achieves and why. I have read, that people recruit in the mirror image of how they see themselves? Utilising processes such as feedback, coaching, mentoring and the development of new leaders through work-based research assignments suggests it has a positive benefit in supporting people, nurturing talent, setting expectations and developing leadership.
What is involved in setting up Hydra?
Would you pop your head up and say, a single word?
It was also identified that there is great research being completed on leadership by the candidates in the NPPF but it is not being captured by the College of Policing, which does seem like a missed opportunity. Ccu on teacher education courses for early years or primary levels, classroom teachers, pre-service education students, and all those interested in promoting critical engagement and dialogue about literature will find thinnking an engaging and very insightful text.
