The Truth About Gender Differences

It’s no secret that men and women are different, but in an effort to be “fair” we often fail to learn about and take advantage of those differences. This workshop is designed to provide officers, dispatchers, trainers, supervisors, managers and all other personnel with a realistic view of gender differences and how these can be harnessed to improve performance, morale, communication, relationships, and officer safety.

Sgt. Betsy Smith will guide students through an intensive, interactive training that will provide attendees with updates, information and resources they can employ to improve and enhance both the professional and personal lives of their staff, their co-workers, and themselves.

We begin each session by honoring the sacrifices of our fallen, celebrating the profession of law enforcement and asking each attendee to inwardly assess their own career.  We’ll discuss true “Warrior Ethos” and then add the principles of gender-specific science and apply cutting edge research to the everyday world of modern policing.  We’ll talk about leveraging advantages, managing conflict, and promoting leadership within any organization. The multi-media format keeps students engaged and entertained while we provide tips and tactics that attendees can use to foster better organizational communication, enhance their training and mentoring programs, and improve their daily lives both on and off the job.

We’ll leave “political correctness” behind and use real-world experience combined with the science of gender intelligence to inspire, motivate, and encourage the women and the men of your organization to excel and to win, regardless of assignment!
