I think the most common problem in law enforcement leadership is the application of self-discovery. Many people believe that what they were taught is the right way to lead everyone else, which we can see that is not true. Understanding your shortcomings as a leader will only prepare you for future success in leadership roles. Not being able to positively identify weaknesses will become a major issue in leading subordinates. Leadership takes being humble and recognize the things that you can improve on every day to be successful. Leadership success is making those you lead successful not the other way around.
