Drink, Swear, Steal, and Lie: Leadership in Four Easy Steps is based on a near forty year career of a Police Chief. This is not a how-to text on becoming a leader (albeit there are encounters with leadership characteristics and styles), but rather an inspiring essential on why one should become a leader. This text was primarily written to satisfy a Leadership course in Criminal Justice Programs. However, it will meet the needs of most leadership/management courses introduced in other curriculums. This text examines maintenance as a key factor for leaders, creating environments conducive to well-ordered organizations, being a risk taker/change agent and empowering others to do the same, and coaching.
