Interactive instruction from top law enforcement personnel is just part of the new, five-week Southeastern Leadership Academy, formerly the Southeastern Command and Leadership Academy. Each week will focus around themed lessons: Foundations of Leadership/Leading Others, Leadership Skills, Building External Relationships, Employee/Internal Matters and Critical Issues. The academy, which is targeted toward middle management, will challenge participants to develop their leadership styles in order to become more effective and progressive leaders. This project is funded under an agreement with the State of Tennessee, Department of Finance and Administration, Office of Criminal Justice Programs and is supported by Award #23123, awarded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, USDOJ.

This course will assist first-line supervisors in developing a better understanding of roles, accountabilities, and skills in supervision. First-line and middle management supervisors will learn how to empower their officers to solve problems and be accountable for their actions. Supervisors will learn to become coaches and mentors, and this course will lay the foundation for basic changes in supervisory skills.
