I think one of the most common leadership problems in law enforcement is the failure to train the next generation of leaders. I think this is due to that old mentality of I learned it you can learn it, as oppose to trying to mentor the next generation of leaders coming up so they don’t have to relearn the same mistakes made before them. I also think that current leadership is threatened by up and coming leaders and they are afraid if they learn too much they will take their spot. When in reality that is what they should be teaching that next generation in order to move an organization forward.
