Chief Geoff Korous & Team at the Improving Leadership Skills Workshop
“Leadership is a gift that is bestowed upon us by our followers.”
Chief Geoff Korous, Woodridge Police Department 1994-2003
We need leaders because they understand that it’s people who make things happen and that they need the support of people to achieve the organization’s goals. LEADERS take responsibility for developing their people so that they can deliver what is needed to achieve these goals. It is the people of your department who deliver on critical issues. It is your people who need to be innovative and responsive to change. It is your people who determine community loyalty and support.

It’s a time of returning to the basics while attempting to create a thoughtful plan for our future.
To all our friends we are returning to our basics while supporting you to create a thoughtful plan for your future. Hence the return of the S.T.A.R. Resources Weekend Attitude Adjustment.
My dad once said when attempting to quit smoking, “buckle up it’s going to be a bumpy ride”. How has your ride on planet earth been lately? For many of us “bumpy” only begins to describe our experience. Our “Attitudes” are getting more than their fare share of bumps and are in many cases in dire need of “Adjustment”. We are adjusting our attitudes about our staff size, our cash flow, our retirement, our strategic plans, our children’s college funds, our dreams of tomorrow and the realities of today.

For the next few moments I remembered and reminded my husband about the blocks of ice we have experienced in our life.
Life seems to have been so serious lately and rightfully so. There are many serious issues requiring attention. And yet, perhaps because summer has begun, I find myself yearning for fun, laughter and plain ole’ silliness.
I found myself thinking this past week about how often we tend to focus on our problems, not necessarily the solutions. It seems that we spend more energy talking about our problems than actually doing anything to rid ourselves of them. I mean really, sometimes it as though our problems become a part of our identity. Who would I be if not for my problems?
Last week, while I was on a business trip to Chicago I rented a car from my friends at Avis. I, put my luggage in the trunk, adjusted the mirrors and before I shifted into drive I looked at the dashboard. I saw in bright neon green numbers and letters the following message – “399 miles to Empty”.
