Trust-based Leadership Workshop for Heads of Cybercrime Units in Latin America

Guatemala, September 20, 2021. The Global Programme of Cybercrime through the project "Strengthening the capacities of the justice and security sector in Central America for the prevention, identification and prosecution of cybercrime, transnational organized crime and related cases through digital evidence: Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Belize" of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) conducted the workshop on leadership based on trust, aimed at 30 heads of Cybercrime Units in Latin America.

In the workshop - which was held from July 21 to September 1, divided into 7 sessions of 90 minutes once a week - participants strengthened their knowledge through practical exercises that allowed them to strengthen their personal confidence, project a confident image and regain confidence in their interpersonal relationships.

The workshop was led by María Elena Muñoz, international trainer and lecturer and creator of the "Confidence-Based Leadership" program. Among the topics addressed were: The four dimensions of the person; the principles that govern power relationships; power vs. force; elements of self-control; projecting trust (credibility and influence); and rebuilding trust (communication strategies, organizational climate, mobbing and burnout).

In addition, this practical, reflective and horizontal approach facilitated the exchange of ideas, strengthening the interpersonal relationships of the participants, as well as coordination networks with their peers in other headquarters in Latin America, which will allow a prompt, comprehensive and timely approach to transnational organized crime. In this way, a contribution is made to achieving Sustainable Development Goal 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions.

These trainings are carried out with the support of the Government of Canada.
