Unit 2 Recording: Coaching and Developing Your Bench

Many organizations struggle with bench strength and the proactive development of leadership in employees. Additionally, not all supervisors are training in how to effectively assess individual strengths and navigate different personalities. This workshop will explore the reasons organizations have a weak bench, how to strategically strengthen your bench and provide concrete coaching skills and tool every leader needs in their toolbox. Participants can expect to leave with new insights, strategies, and approaches that can enhance their leadership and concepts they can implement to improve leadership throughout the organization.



The National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) is one of the largest associations of law enforcement professionals in the United States, representing more than 3,000 elected sheriffs across the nation, and a total membership of more than 20,000.

Throughout its seventy-seven year history, NSA has served as an information clearinghouse for sheriffs, deputies, chiefs of police, other law enforcement professionals, state governments and the federal government.




Audience Comments:

  • “Today I learned how my pointing out what’s wrong all the time has hindered my relationship with my staff. I have failed to make deposits as I am supposed to.” –Desiree
  • “This was a great webinar. So many of us absorb problems of others, do not look at ourselves closely enough to know when we are getting “crispy” and come into work with bad attitudes which affects the staff. Dr. Miller shared some very helpful tools to think about what you do and who you are daily, to also look at staff from the human aspect, not just workers. I would love to have her speak at our bureau!” — Kathleen
  • “As a new supervisor, I learned many new tools to use with my employees and to not become the “Darth Vader.” –Paul
  • “As a supervisor, it has reminded me to practice my skills. To improve and work on my less desirable skills and work harder on my strengths.” –Janet
  • “Fits right in with some issues our line supervisors are facing right now.” –Kim
  • “I enjoyed the “bank” concept and the ideas/tips on recognizing a full bank vs. an empty one. Having done this for quite some time I appreciated sharpening up some perishable thoughts/concepts. Thanks!” –Tim
