The belief that officers must have rank to be considered leaders is a myth that has hindered the law enforcement profession for too long.  Traditional leadership programs have focused on those who have already been promoted, but what about those who have not?  Some of the most effective leaders do not have brass on their collars or stripes on their sleeves.  Leading Without Rank was designed to inspire officers to seek out leadership opportunities and provide the skills and motivation to influence behaviors of those around them and influence the culture of their organization.
