Abstract

Lord Moran stated “leadership is the capacity to frame plans which will succeed and the faculty of persuading others to carry them out”. Framing a workable plan and the mechanisms required to assist in this process can vary greatly within organisations that may have differing ethos’s, aims and objectives. This paper will dissect and discuss the leadership challenges posed when educating Police Officers in a Higher Education Environment (HEI). In a transition from HEI to the disciplined environment of Policing, is this a challenge of bringing ‘order from chaos?’ The quote provides a window to the idea of leadership and management, both of which are pressure tested in the robust arenas of higher education and Policing. There are opposing methodologies, policies, standards and desired outcomes between these organisations. Do they want to ‘do things right’ or ‘do the right thing?’ This is a literature based study centring on styles, theories and methods of leadership and how they are applied and implemented within the relevant organisations, in both the UK and further afield, in order to frame a discussion regarding the challenges presented by administering students across this nexus.
