Courageous Leadership


Courageous Leadership For Law Enforcement

“This class is absolutely outstanding.”  Nathan Mendes, California Narcotics Officers Association

“This class should be required for every single police officer in America.”  Officer Jason Cummings, Claremore PD

“In my 12 year career, this was the best class I have ever taken on leadership.”  Sergeant Josh Johnson

“The best presentation I have had in over 22 years in law enforcement.”  Sgt. Michael Huber, McMinnville (OR) Police Department

“This is some of the best training I have attended in over 40 years of law enforcement.”
Scott Johnson, Chief of Police – Grand Rapids (MN) Police Department  

While there are hundreds of leadership courses and thousands of books dedicated on the subject, law enforcement continues to be plagued with a serious lack of leadership and risk management principles.

yates-finalThis dynamic and unique course is led by Tulsa Police Major Travis Yates, a former International Trainer of the Year by ILEETA, co-founder of the Below 100 Initiative and the Editor In Chief of Law Officer Magazine.

This course will prepare first responders from all ranks to be courageous in their principles in order to give those under their control a safer working environment.  While many leadership courses focus on theory, this course focuses on practice and the principles taught will help the leader immediately and “de-centralized” leadership is emphasized so every police officer from every rank can be inspired to be a leader.

“This class was the highlight of our annual conference.  I was on the edge of my seat throughout the day.  Thank you!”
Tom, Oregon Peace Officers Association

“I believe every police officer to the chief should take this course.  This made me a better police officer and  a better person.”
James Turner

“I have never attended a leadership training so inspiring to be strong,  stand for for what is right, and not just cave to the few individuals in this world that would like to see us fail.”
Officer Travis Luttmer, Oregon

“Courageous Leadership is should be a mandatory course for every supervisor and every police chief. The instructor, Travis Yates, immediately connected with the class and made this class engaging and informative. His years of experience in police supervision and administration was evident as he was able to link theory with practice. The class was very well organized and was taught in such a way that it made us really think about our role as leaders and the responsibility that brings within our organizations and communities. This is some of the best training I have attended in over 40 years of law enforcement.”
Scott Johnson, Chief of Police – Grand Rapids (MN) Police Department  

“The instructor was very well prepared and maintained constant class participation.  The course was current and should be required for first line supervisors and management.  Management needs to learn that if they don’t provide immediate and consistent information to their officers and public it will be fabricated by others that don’t have the relevant information.”
Commander Jack T. Nelsen
California Department of Justice

“I found this to be one of the best leadership courses I have ever taken in my career. Never would have though that on my very next shift after attending this training, that I would be the Sergeant on duty, and at the scene of a critical incident Officer involved.  Thankfully, in the follow through of the incident I was able to use a lot of what Major Yates and Stacey Ettel covered in this course to not only manage the incident as best as I can, but support my officers as best as I can throughout the whole situation and in the days after. Many thanks to Travis and Stacey for this course!!!”
Sergeant Brandon Ackney, Wisconsin
