In this episode, host Aaron Dawson continues the conversation began in the last episode discussing crucial skills that supervisors must have in dealing with staff. What do our staff need from us? In this episode, we continue by discussing the third and fourth things supervisors must provide. The third item is a consistent and realistic level of intensity. If we “flip out” every time that anything happens, regardless of whether it is a “big deal” or not, we will have serious issues. The fourth item is transparency. If we have an expectation that our officers communicate and act in an honest way, shouldn’t we do the same. These are practical items that all of us can apply right away.
