Abstract

The article considers the problem of developmental psychological counselling for the heads of the district-level internal affairs divisions. Modern requirements which are imposed on the senior leadership of internal affairs divisions guide the officials towards continuous self-development, self-realization and modernizing of their psychological, managerial and innovative potential and the psychotechnology of developmental counselling is viewed as one of methods for that. We substantiate the relevance of the study of positive developments in the personalities of the heads of district-level internal affairs divisions in the process of developmental counselling. This psychotechnology (seen as a kind of psychological counselling) facilitates positive changes in the personalities of subjects of management activities (i.e. heads of internal affairs divisions) and optimizes their professional and personal development, helps to resolve psychological problems and crises arising in course of their careers. We also presented the results of the study of the prevailing background functional states of leadership's personalities.
