View On Demand (Recorded October 24, 2022)

Public safety has a leadership problem. In recent Lexipol Media Group surveys of more than 3,000 paramedics, 2,300 law enforcement officers and 2,500 firefighters, stark commonalities arose. Personnel feel unrecognized and lack constructive performance feedback. Many do not trust agency leaders or their ability to advocate for line personnel. And few are willing to recommend their career to others.  

Join us for an exploration of these exclusive survey results collected by Police1, FireRescue1 and EMS1 and an interactive discussion of how supervisors and employees of all ranks can engage and interact more productively. Only then can we address one of the key challenges facing all public safety today: retention of high-quality personnel.   

You’ll learn:

  • What data indicates about how cops, firefighters and paramedics view industry challenges, agency leadership and direct supervision.

  • The importance of one-one-one meetings between supervisors and line-level personnel and how to best run those meetings.

  • Strategies for improving performance feedback.

  • The connection between good supervision and employee retention.
