Leadership for Sergeants and Inspectors offers an easily accessible and practical guide to leadership in routine and complex situations across all areas of police work. The need to demonstrate leadership can occur at any moment: in public order situations, community meetings and among colleagues at work. Enhancing your leadership skills is an effective way of ensuring that you inspire and motivate others, as well as improving interactions with the wide range
of people you will meet over the course of your career, from members of the public to social services and partner agencies.
This book discusses leadership and teamwork, as well as other leadership skills, through a series of questions that you might consider within the course of your everyday police work. With clear and concise explanations, the author draws on 30 years' experience as a police officer to bring you detailed theory and practice across a range of leadership areas, including team work, equality and diversity, delegation, misconduct and discipline, communication, and assertiveness. There are also helpful
hints and tips along the way, providing context to leadership issues within policing, as well as offering examples of leadership skills in practice. The second part of the book amounts to a series of skills checklists, closely aligned to the coverage of the 21 chapters and which you can dip into
when immediate help is required. The checklists act as 'tool kit' for the busy police officer trying, with perhaps little time ahead, to deal with events efficiently and effectively.
Whether you are just embarking on your police career, have been recently promoted, or simply want to refresh your leadership skills, Leadership for Sergeants and Inspectors will support and assist you, helping you to get the best out of your team, your colleagues, and your encounters with members of the public.
