Lead Your Community
As we wrap up 2020, ask yourself how eventful your work year was. While many people struggled to make ends meet, transitioned to working from home, or took time off altogether, this week’s guest certainly had a very different experience. Lexi Harris [@iura_llc] is an Officer with the Seattle Police Department, one of the hardest hit cities during the protests and riots. Her firsthand account of a “typical” work day/night is eye-opening as is her commitment to connect with the community more than ever. How can we heal from such a tumultuous time? Lexi has a few ideas.
How imperative is good leadership? This week’s guest, Lexi Harris, believes that police organizations are only as effective at connecting with their community as the leaders within. That’s why she feels it’s important for officers to recognize that they are leaders despite the fact that they may not hold a high rank. Police officers are the first responders making initial contact with citizens and therefore have the power to make a lasting impact on the community. Bringing better leadership skills to these frontline folks is exactly what Ofc Harris is hoping to accomplish with her hustle, iURA [[@iura_llc] and podcast, The Leaderist. Regardless of where you stand on the issues, we can all get behind a better training for high standard occupations like law enforcement.
