In our second session with Dr. George Reed, we discuss toxic, destructive leadership. Dr. Reed now serves as Dean at the School of Public Policy at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. A U.S. Army military veteran, George retired as a Colonel in the Military Police Corps. George had assignments that included MP posts, Criminal Investigation Command (CIC, formerly CID) leadership posts, and correctional facility posts. His last assignment was as a faculty member of leadership studies at the Army War College in Carlisle, PA.
Dr. Reed also worked at the University of San Diego focused on leadership studies. Our chat focused on toxic leadership, relationships, looking for experiences and literature from outside of policing and their value for police organizations.
