Left Of Bang Leadership is our leadership course designed to provide law enforcement professionals the tools needed to thrive in their law enforcement career through proven risk management strategies.

Policing has become much more complicated than crime fighting and leaders have to be concerned with much more than the crime rates in their communities. Left of Bang Leadership is designed to provide all law enforcement professionals with proven and research driven techniques that will protect their overall mission from the “bang” that we have all too often seen.  

This is the best leadership course I have ever taken in my career. Never would have thought that on my very next shift, that I would be at the scene of a critical incident. Thankfully, I was able to use a lot of what Travis Yates covered in this powerful course to not only manage the incident, but support my officers. Many thanks to Travis and his team for this outstanding course!!!”
