Fewer challenges in the world today are more sobering or threatening to society than the growth of crime and terror. Traditional law enforcement alone won’t solve the complexities related to these problems. A new shift towards partnership and prevention is occurring around the world that is reducing crime and terror as much as 80%. This positive policing approach unleashes the potential of citizens, families, neighborhoods, communities and countries to prevent crime and social disorder. In this cutting-edge webinar Mr. Clapham will discuss how Positive Policing has successfully reduced crime and disorder, increased police officer morale, created stronger community partnerships, and created a world-wide movement for positive change. The webinar will be of interest to leaders at all levels in organizations, and anyone that has an interest in public safety - government, corporations, not-for-profit agencies, education, first nations, helping organizations and justice agencies.
More About our Speaker:
Ward Clapham worked in law enforcement for over 30 years. When he took command of the third largest RCMP detachment in Canada, the organization ran like most bureaucracies- heavy command-and-control management and strict adherence to the status quo. But Clapham didn’t believe in staying in the box. He and his teams took calculated chances, made mistakes, and forged new paths where others feared to tread. Though difficult at times, Clapham’s unshakable vision created new paradigms of leadership within the traditional environment of policing, not to mention that crime and community problems were significantly decreased.
Clapham’s inspiring stories define and describe the paradigm shift needed to move away from the command-and-control style of managing people toward a more proactive, unleashing of talent. He challenges leaders to think again about the effectiveness of their current methods and established rules of engagement. Clapham has spoken to thousands of people on his unique experiences and how issues of leadership that affect the RCMP are very similar to those that challenge leaders in the ‘real world’. His non-traditional way of thinking and problem solving has made him a sought-after speaker and consultant. Stephen Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has called his work “wonderfully innovative”.
