In my opinion the most common leadership problems in law enforcement come from lack of courage. The lack of courage can show itself in many forms. The lack of courage to make decisions and to stand by those decisions. The lack of courage to own mistakes and the mistakes of your subordinates. The lack of courage to take subordinates to task for not meeting standards. The lack of courage to defend subordinates from unfair treatment. Finally the lack of courage to do the right thing even though even though there may be an easier path with less aggravation.
