LEADERSHIP IN HOMELAND SECURITY (LHS)

The Leadership in Homeland Security Executive Seminar (LHS) equips senior leaders with the resources and capabilities required to provide an effective response during crisis events at the operational level.

Inaction or uncertainty in times of crisis can lead to costly mistakes. Using case studies on major events, LHS provides participants with knowledge to effectively ground themselves in their operational roles amidst a crisis to accurately perceive what is occurring and what to do about it, while also creating connections with key stakeholders.

Throughout LHS, central questions will focus on the operational level of leadership: What do leaders need to do before a crisis, how do they need to operate during a crisis, and how do they make the greatest possible contribution with the available resources? Reviewing and addressing these prior to real world emergencies equips graduates to promptly respond when most needed.

Note: Participation requires the appropriate level of approval from either the General Officer Management Office (GOMO) or approval at the state level.
