“Hands down the best executive/management training I have had to date. I wish I had received this training several years ago. It could have prevented some of the mistakes I made as well as have helped me to achieve so much more.” John Hall, Chief, Exeter Police Department

Cal Chiefs has partnered with the Drucker School of Management at Claremont Graduate University in Southern California to offer you an exceptional career development program. This one-of-a-kind west coast Executive Leadership Institute (ELI) is a premier program designed to enhance your leadership skills. Conducted in a rigorous academic setting, this two-week executive leadership experience brings together an array of relevant subject matter experts to enrich your experience on a personal and professional level. 

”ELI was absolutely the best leadership course I have ever attended. The quality of the instructors, the value of the networking, and the benefit of the class discussions were outstanding. I was forced to look internally and quickly realized that I need to change some things. The most important thing about this course is that it almost forces you to go back to your organization on Monday morning and make a difference.  I would absolutely recommend this course to any executive in law enforcement.” Ryan Weeks, Commander, Ventura Police Department

ELI offers participants the opportunity for a Drucker inspired learning environment where the principles of Peter F. Drucker are imbued with a law enforcement perspective.

What’s in your professional and personal toolkit? Are you a new chief or aspiring leader preparing for executive leadership? If it’s time to get serious about your law enforcement career, this Institute offers you:

  • The Drucker learning environment
  • Connective Leadership assessments
  • Professors and lecturers from the Drucker School of Management
  • Law enforcement subject matter experts
  • Small group learning activities and discussions as well as lectures and panels
  • Professional contacts and relationships from around the state and beyond that will increase your network

Curriculum:  Leadership Decision Making and Decision Science, Creating an Exemplary Policing Organization, Teams in Organizations, Systems Thinking, Leading During Crisis, Finance, Women in Leadership, Creating a Culture of Accountability, Creating and Maintaining the High Reliability Organization, Time Evaluation/Self Evaluation, and Application of Drucker Principles to your Organization are just some of the topic areas key to your professional growth that will be presented.
