“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more and become more, you are a leader.”

John Quincy Adams

Leaders Helping Leaders Mentoring Network

Leaders Helping Leaders Network was created to develop a one-of-a-kind national network for inter-agency mentoring and information sharing among law enforcement officers.

It was created to address the need for quality interactions and information sharing among law enforcement personnel. Whether they are looking for a mentor; the answer to a question to do their job better; or just ideas on self-improvement, LHLN is creating a mobile solution to make this happen.

While many law enforcement agencies have contemplated the need for mentoring  programs few have been able to successfully start one.  The reasons are many including department size, lack of mentors, and resources. The reality is that the most effective mentoring relationships are those that develop organically. It may begin by asking a question about how to do a particular part of your job better and that leads to more and more interactions until a mentoring relationship develops over time among individuals. 

Others come to LHLN wanting to just be better leaders. The tips and interactions with other leaders and discussions among them through our moderated online forums led by Dean or another subject-matter expert on the topic at hand.

Our program is designed to serve not only agencies who want to improve their leaders,  but individuals who want to become the best leader they can be both personally and professionally.

Many join for the rich content but end up staying because of the community we have created.

Our mobile app will allow members to access discussion forums and message other members in a private, secure online forum – in many ways, it’s a private Facebook group without the fear that your information is being sold to other vendors.

How We Do It

We have created what we believe to be a first of its kind law enforcement inter-agency mentoring network through our Leaders Helping Leaders Network Program.  Law enforcement professionals face an ever changing environment of uncertainty and public expectations.   By providing access to a online national network of  law enforcement professionals who are willing to share their leadership experiences and ideas, our participants will have unparalleled access and a unique opportunity to learn from other  professionals.

It also provides the participant an opportunity for self reflection and personal growth by sharing their experience, ideas, knowledge, career goals and educational information with another professional.

Finally, we will offer participants the opportunity for self-growth through available self-assessments you can use to learn more about yourself and how others may perceive you as part of your self-reflection process.

Take this Opportunity To Sign Up

LHLN has been offering its mentoring network FREE to qualifying law enforcement personnel. We will begin by offering free to those who have attended one of Dean Crisp’s Intentional Leadership classes or persons who have been specifically invited because of their unique knowledge, skills and abilities as leaders. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mentoring Steps

The first step is to apply to the program by completing the simple application form.  We require only your name, organization, position and, of course, email.

After approval you will  be notified by the program administrator and will have access to the mentoring directory and content where you can complete your member profile and look at who else is in our network. The member profile will ask you what skills you bring to the network (professional expertise areas, knowledge, interests) and what you are hoping to learn – this helps us develop content for you, the member. 

From the member directory, you can reach out to other LHLN members that possess the expertise on a topic you seek answers or improvement through what we call “flash” mentoring.  It is through these interactions that you may create a longer-term mentoring relationship with one or more individuals within the network. We also will have the ability to create sub-groups within the community that create geo-specific regions that answer professional questions that are geo-specific or that address specific concerns such as how to successfully reach promotion.

From these professional interactions, we hope to see informal mentoring relationships develop. Whether they follow a more traditional mentor-mentee, reverse mentoring or peer-to-peer model, our hope is that you find quality professional relationships and answers that make you the best leader you can be professionally and personally.

The content provided will be rich and robust. It will focus on self-development and the intentional leadership model that is taught in our class. However, your membership in LHLN is what you make it. Whether your are in it for the information and access to top trainers and subject-matter experts or to just develop a secure community within your profession where you can share ideas and learn, we know that LHLN will succeed because the quality of its members and the community they create.

Grow as A Leader

As the program evolves, LHLN will add layers of mentoring and provide initial “mentees” with the opportunity to create peer-to-peer groups online or become mentors themselves.

Continuing mentors will hopefully become trusted members of the LHLN network for flash mentoring of officers in need and as continuing leadership mentors who’s insight is valued by LHLN members.

We encourage all members to make contributions to our blog, newsletter, and Leader’s Library resource area. It’s only through you and your contributions that LHLN becomes what we envision
