Diversity Centered Leadership for Law Enforcement


Diversity training in many organizations is as much an effort to reduce legal exposure as it is to help people work better together. But to what end? While we might think we see the world as it is, we in fact perceive it the way we are. Imagine a law enforcement environment where professionals recognize the value of diversity and move beyond judgments and bias to become role models of cultural leadership and change. Embracing this concept is not only important to complying with the law, but essential for building a high performance agency.


FranklinCovey’s Diversity Centered Leadership for Law Enforcement Professionals workshop teaches individuals to expand their perspective of diversity and become diversity leaders for others. As a result of the training, participants:

  1. Understand the broad scope of diversity issues while being challenged to examine their personal behaviors and how these behaviors affect success.
  2. Gain a willingness to accept and promote positive change.
  3. Learn the importance of leading ethically and with moral courage.
  4. Apply a process for identifying and breaking through their personal barriers to diversity.


This one-day or two-day, facilitator-led program taught onsite at your organization helps participants learn to manage an increasingly diverse workplace and customer base. The workshop covers such topics as:

  • Valuing the differences in others
  • Demographic changes and their impact
  • Communication skills
  • Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) vs. diversity
  • Stereotyping
  • Racial profiling
  • High performance teams
  • Developing an awareness of personal belief systems
  • Personal leadership
