Confronting Toxic Leadership with Steve Neal

Ever wondered what it takes to lead with integrity behind the badge? Join us as we sit down with Steve Neal, a law enforcement veteran of nearly three decades, whose story of transformation from a young man on the wrong side of the law to a champion for respectful policing will leave you inspired. Steve doesn't just share his journey; he takes us through the murky waters of law enforcement leadership, revealing how toxic relationships at the top can ripple down and impact the entire department. His book, "Toxic Boss Blues," dives into these turbulent dynamics, offering a lifeline to those struggling under the weight of problematic superiors.

Leadership can make or break the spirit of an organization, and nowhere is this more evident than in the corridors of law enforcement. This episode peels back the curtain on the kind of leadership that corrodes institutional morale — think micromanagement and biased discipline — and outlines why the shift in promoting leaders should favor those who prioritize authenticity and moral courage. Steve's reflections on how he navigated these treacherous leadership landscapes not only shed light on the issue but also provide valuable lessons and strategies for those in the throes of similar battles.
