VUCA and the Centurion Principle of MAGNUS Officers
Law enforcement officers operate in a world of increasing Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity (VUCA). MAGNUS Officers (Javidi, et al) counter the effects of VUCA through the purposeful integration and encapsulation of key virtues in their lives. Practically every ethical failure or instance of police misconduct can be traced back to a violation of the Centurion Principle, operating “out from under authority” and pursuing ego-centric gratifications. Conversely, MAGNUS officers faithfully represent their authorities without letting their egos get in the way.
This webinar explores the consequences of officers “giving away” lawful authority by resorting to ego-power. Then presents practical steps to professionally exercise their authority to build trust, generate voluntary compliance with the law, and prevent ethical failures.
