MAGNUS Leadership: A Tactical Application of Reversal Theory for Enhanced Officer Wellness and Resiliency
“Congratulations on a very successful leadership training program recently held in Southaven, Mississippi. I wanted each of you to know how powerful your presentation was and how the points mentioned hit the mark. It was a pleasure meeting both of you and if the DEA New Orleans Field Division can ever be of any assistance please do not hesitate to call… All the best, drive on and God Bless….”
Craig M. Wiles, Associate SAC, DEA – New Orleans Field Division
“It was a pleasure taking part of your training. I think it is the best training I have taken throughout my career with the NYPD. Thank you and Sheriff Ray Nash. You guys are touching a part of law enforcement that has not been addressed. Keep helping other law enforcers realize that they are “MAGNUS”. As for me, I know in my heart and mind that I am. God bless you both for everything.”
Police Officer Julio Castro, NYPD
Sheriff Brian Gardner of the Linn County Sheriff’s Office and the National Command are pleased to bring this nationally recognized workshop to Iowa.
Course Overview: Crisis happens. Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity (VUCA), coined at the Army War College in the early 1990’s, is a sobering new reality for police officers nationwide. In simple terms, VUCA is chaos. It falls on law enforcement professionals to understand it, prepare for it, and minimize the disruptive and destabilizing effects of it on self, agency and the communities they serve. This workshop introduces “MAGNUS Leadership” coined by Dr. Javidi in 2016 as a practical and tactical counter VUCA for enhanced officer effectiveness, wellness and resiliency. The program is a scientific application and expansion of the Reversal Theory focusing on activating positive brain and deep emotional intelligence. The workshop has received overwhelming positive response from agencies nationwide as well as WIDOJ and HIDTA through supported grants for their affiliated agencies.
Learning Objectives: Upon the completion of the course, the participants will:
- Have a theoretical, scientific, and practical understanding of VUCA and its short, intermediate, and long-term effects on officers’ personal and professional life.
- Understand Reversal Theory as a tactical framework to counter VUCA.
- Develop comprehensive emotional intelligence and cognitive learning tools to enhance leadership capacity.
- Proactively advance (conscious and unconscious) wellness and resiliency.
The participants will receive the following:
- Two (2) books: Deliberate Leadership & Moral Compass for Law Enforcement
- Four (4) self -assessments
- Course Materials with Workbook
- National Certificate of Completion from the National Command & Staff College
- MAGNUS Leader Coin Plaque
- Induction to the National Command & Staff College
