The most common leadership problem in law enforcement I have found to be is entitlement – throughout my career, I have experiences complacency, ignorance, apathy, and laziness; these lack of qualities for me define the entitled supervisor or manager. Promoted to serve his or her staff selflessly, these individuals have lost sight of leadership values, such as leading by and through example. At times we all have bad days, but the committed, stable leader is one that challenges there subordinates and provides tools and guidance, they set goals and challenge themselves and persevere with their team. They are leaders that remember God is in the details, nothing is forgotten or left behind.
