Leadership Lessons Learned; A Conversation with Sheriff John Turner – John Turner
Leadership Lessons Learned; A Conversation with Sheriff John Turner is simply that; an informal conversation with recently retired Sheriff John Turner and the lessons he has learned over more than three decades of observation, trials, challenges, successes, and failures. John breaks down these leadership principles into bite sized pieces that can be easily digested, discussed, and applied to be a more effective leader at any level of an organization. Ours is a noble profession. Our communities and the men and women who serve them are worthy of ethical, effective leaders. This conversation, including the use of relevant videos, strives to impart empowering leadership principles to others so they may lead effectively from where they’re at.
