During February I had the privilege and pleasure of working with Narcotics Officers in Ghana. They were leaders of teams and made the most of 3 weeks of classroom time to discover their leadership style and create new ways of managing and leading their own teams. They focus on drugs enforcement, preventing importation and exportation, educating young people about the challenges and risks involved in taking drugs and work with offenders/users to help them break the cycle of addiction and crime.
They experience shortage of resources, equipment and staff and yet they approach their work and the opportunity to be the best they can, with real enthusiasm. We have so much to learn from each other around the world and for me, my students and new friends in Ghana, were a real inspiration. Well done to them all and good luck on your leadership journey
