Great insights Chief and I hope all of your peers in the program read this. I think folks often forget the challenges that agency CEOs (Chiefs, Sheriffs, Directors, etc) are faced with, and that those CEOs have to make decisions with best interest of the organization in mind. You are spot in in your observations about inconsistency. With nearly 18,000 agencies in this country, there are clearly a wide variety of leadership styles. It is also very true that without a set of standards or benchmarks, we can not ensure consistency.
