Leadership makes the difference. This well-known principle was never more valid then for the survival of the GIs who clung to the sands of Omaha Beach on that fateful June 6th, 1944 – D-Day. Despite months of detailed planning and intense training, it was the leadership exercised at all levels of command that day which made the difference between life or death and the success or failure of the overall mission. This iconic moment in American history provides a classic study in the principles of leadership in times of crisis. This presentation will tell the story of these brave soldiers and outline the leadership principles important for all front-line leaders of modern law enforcement organizations.
