The International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA) yesterday hosted Secondary school students from Emang and Baratani both Junior Secondary Schools during the Academy’s “Women in Law Enforcement #LeadershipTraining Program.” This course covered such topics as employee developmental levels, behavioral styles, exemplary practices of a leader and emotional intelligence, and was taught exclusively by visiting instructors from the U.S. Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.
During their visit, the young visitors participated in a discussion on emotional intelligence along with course participants from Benin, Comoros, Gabon, Guinea, Madagascar, Republic of Congo and Senegal. They asked questions about what motivated them to join law enforcement and what hurdles the participants faced as women leaders in their respective organizations. Upon completion of the session, the young ladies were presented with certificates of participation and shared some candid moments with their new participant mentors.
