Performance Management: Assists police supervisors to better understand and conduct effective performance management reviews.

Self-managing Skills: Explores the concepts and theories behind communication and emotional intelligence and identifies the steps that control success or failure.

Domestic Violence (release pending): Reviews supervisory roles, responsibilities, and best practices as they relate to domestic violence investigations and identifies the steps required to conduct thorough investigations.
