RITE Leadership Training @Harvard University Police Dept. OCT 15-16, 2019 (Cambridge, MA)

October 15 - October 16

RITE University Leadership

Private Training:

RITE Leadership Training at Harvard University will be conducted over a 2-day period. This private training is open to University Police Leaders. Originally designed for police and corrections departments, RITE Academy has delivered training to multiple government agencies, universities, corporate clients and NGOs.


HUPD has taken proactive measures to give their police officers RITE training and tools that will help improve communication and reduce any bias-based tension. Teaching critical components of both Emotional Intelligence (EI) and Social Intelligence (SI), improves resiliency awareness, as well as personal and professional relationships.


Pro-active steps towards Harvard’s Mission

“The mission of the Harvard University Police Department is to maintain a safe and secure campus by providing quality policing in partnership with the community.

The HUPD pursues this mission within the University context of free expression, rigorous inquiry, vast diversity, and pursuit of distinction. The HUPD honors these traditions and seeks success by means that are moral, constitutional, and respectful of individual rights and community.”

– HUPD Mission and Values


Georgia Chief tells CBS News “Here’s how RITE Training has benefited our Officers and our Community”

Emotional Intelligence is being aware of our emotions, and to acknowledge that emotions can drive behavior that impacts others (positively and negatively). Social Intelligence is how we effectively navigate and negotiate all social relationships and situations.

RITE Tools, like the Emotional Energy Ladder (in this photo), makes us aware of our emotions, how we affect others, and that only we have the power to make those changes. Racism lives at the bottom of the Ladder with Hate. Bias-free lives at the top of the Ladder with Love, Gratitude and Joy.

Great leadership starts with doing the RITE thing, and helping others do the same.

Racial Intelligence is: “The practice of using Emotional Intelligence (EI), Social Intelligence (SI) and the RITE Tools to treat ourselves and others fairly.”

Goals and Objectives:

  • Learning how to use EI and SI tools that go beyond DIVERSITY and Inclusion
  • Emotional Intelligence and Mindfulness – Making the connection
  • De-escalation communication awareness – The 3-EI approach
  • Improving Employee Wellness – Communication Keys to Resiliency
  • Working with Implicit bias, PTSD, and Stress-related issues
  • Building Community Inclusion and Trust – Working with community leaders using RITE Training
  • Full-day class filled with fun, engaging lessons, videos, laughter and learning!
