2. In this unit, we learned
how effective communication is vital to criminal justice leadership. Now, consider the alternative. For this discussion, share a situation in which a lack of communication led to failures in leadership or failures in criminal justice workplace success. Identify the breakdown in communication and the result. Do you think the aftermath of the situation (correction or lesson learned) was sufficient? What would you do differently? You may base the situations on your own experience, what you have witnessed, or what you have heard or read (substantiated—not conjecture or rumor).
