Executive Development Strategy 3 (EDS3)

AIPM EDS3 incorporates a range of engaging and effective researchsupported development approaches for middle level managers in police organisations.

EDS3 examines the leadership transition from middle management to more senior roles with a focus on individual impact and growth. The program encourages participants to leverage their own unique leadership style to build thriving, high performance teams.

For many participants, EDS3 will be their introduction to a diversity of leadership development approaches including personal learning through coaching, organisational learning through manager-participant commitments and peer based learning through residential workshops and digital engagement.

EDS3 draws upon peer and organisational perspectives of contemporary policing tensions including policy, operations, executive and team to help participants’ identify and take responsibility for their own leadership and learning journey.
