This is just a hint of what is coming down the road here shortly. I’m still reeling in information on a recent event that I will be talking about very shortly (hopefully tomorrow) regarding leadership in the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office run by Sheriff Laurie Smith.
Until then, I was given these by some people who were recently in a real leadership class. They were broken into groups and asked to list what they believe the good and bad traits of a leader are and share them. Please feel free to peruse the below graphics representing their understanding of leadership qualities and see if you agree (click on each graphic to enlarge). Then see how they apply to the leadership of the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office and what you want to see in leadership going into the next term – More of the same or the kind of leadership skills Kevin Jensen has shown during his career.
