023: WINx Chicago 2017 - How Mentoring Will Reshape the Culture of Policing in America

On April 25, 2017, I had the incredible opportunity to join with other leading law enforcement professionals for WINx Chicago 2017. WINx is an event for growth and advancement of the law enforcement profession, and is a fast-paced event that features quick 18-minute presentations to challenge, engage, and inspire you. The title of my talk was "The New FTO: How Mentoring Will Reshape the Culture of Policing in America." In this episode, I present the audio of my talk and strongly encourage listeners to join the WINx mailing list to receive the other 8 phenomenal talks as they are released.

1. Mentors possess a certain attitude - LEGACY.

2. Mentors provide their calculated attention - TIME.

3. Mentors perform with consistent actions - CHARACTER.
