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

Chief of Police Tom Chaplin of the Walnut Creek Police Department, CA and the National Command and Staff College are pleased to bring this nationally recognized workshop to California.  

Course Overview

The “MAGNUS Leadership Theory” seminar and workshop was created in 2016 by Dr. Mitch Javidi.  This cutting-edge approach to leadership development focuses on tactical methods which Officers can use to counter VUCA, enhance their performance, their effectiveness, their wellness and their resiliency.  As an end result, class participants emerge as MAGNUS Leaders with deeper understandings of the scientific and practical uses of the Theory of Things, Expectancy and the Reversal Theories of Leadership.  Collectively these skillsets enhance an Officer’s ability to activate positive brain and deep emotional intelligence enabling them to practice outstanding leadership.  The MAGNUS Leadership workshop utilizes motivational presentations and personal experiences, dynamic group discussions and real-world situations for enhanced learning and applications.  This seminar will also instruct on the utilization of MAGNUS Leadership Virtues and Imperatives.  This new knowledge will ignite and accelerate transformational leadership mindfulness while teaching explicit practices for the improvement of an Officer’s ability to accomplish results with confidence.
