020: Thinking Differently About Law Enforcement Leadership with Roy Bethge

May 29, 2017

Roy Bethge is a veteran police leader with more than 26 years of experience.  He is the lead instructor and co-founder of The Virtus Group, and the co-founder of WINx: Inspiring Excellence in Law Enforcement.  In this episode, Roy provides his definition of leadership, talks about the need for thinking differently about law enforcement leadership, and gives three practical tips for becoming successful as an individual and leader.


Roy defines leadership as "the ability to inspire others or self toward a common ethical goal," and then explains the components of his definition.  He goes on to offer the following advice concerning becoming successful.


1. Continually self-assess through outside sources.  Take assessments and hire a coach that will help you gain an outside perspective for growth.  As one of Jonathan's professors teaches, leadership development begins with self development, and self development begins with self awareness.


2. Work on your attitude.  You are in control of your attitude and perspective even while facing challenging situations.


3. Read, Read, Read.
