Strategies for winning leadership
June 5, 2014
Dear PoliceOne Member,
Welcome to the premiere issue of PoliceOne's 'The Police Leader' eNews, a newsletter focused on all matters of import for command staff of agencies large and small, covering both leadership of people and management of things.

In this issue, Chief Joel Shults urges us to "ask why" and gives five reasons every good police leader should. Also, Barry Reynolds explains how to lead without draining the life-blood from your officers, and Dan Danaher examines how 14 military values translate to police leadership.
