Public Safety Training and Consulting

This three-day course is designed specifically for first line supervisors in a corrections environment who direct, motivate, lead, appraise and discipline others.  Supervising in a jail is different than the road and the class recognizes that with added skills.  As a result of coaching, role play, exercises, self-assessments, group discussions and lecture, participants will leave with new knowledge and skills in:  

-       Setting expectations and holding employees accountable

-       Analyzing and resolving performance problems

-       Improving workplace communication

-       Gaining listening and assertion skills

-       Coaching others for improved work performance

-       Learning behaviors and characteristics of quality leaders

-       The role of motivation in performance

The course also features realistic corrections-based scenarios with participants identifying and addressing potential risks and legal issues in the corrections environment such as: inmate behavior management; safety and security of the facility, staff and inmates; supervision of mandated recordkeeping and reporting; the different challenges facing small-, mid-, and large-sized jails; and, much more!

The cost is $375 per person.  Class runs from 8 am to 5 pm each day with an hour for lunch.
