RITE Train-the-trainer Graduate, just days after class: 
“Our Chief Firearms Instructor asked if I could help out an officer who is in our academy and is struggling with shooting his firearm. If he doesn’t pass the qualification this week, he will be let go. You can imagine the stress and other emotions this young man is going through. So, this past Saturday, I met him at our shooting range to train him on…” ~ Read what happened HERE


RITE combines Emotional and Social Intelligence techniques, unique to an officer’s communication needs. These critical skills (that most officers need, yet rarely learn), help improve De-escalation, Officer Wellness, and career Resiliency. This cutting edge, 21st century in-service training is for all public service professionals who are looking to build a better foundation towards positive employee engagement, on and off the streets. RITE programs reinforce proper conduct as an employee of the department (LE, Corrections, Fire, and City), and the documentation that strengthens standards, if ever needed.

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

RITE’s four (4) motivational training programs are designed to coach, motivate and inspire your employees with unique Emotional and Social Intelligence lessons that create cultural changes in the department. All programs teach the (6) RITE modules (life lessons), that go beyond the ordinary cultural diversity and inclusion, sensitivity training, and actually improve individual lives. RITE is approved by the IADLEST NCP and in 33 POST Academies. Officers receive (4) CE Credits. Our training has been known to even improve marital relationships!

RITE Programs and Pricing

(1) RITE EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP - Cultural Change & De-escalation Starts up Top

The Executive Leadership Course is a 1-day training for the department command staff and leaders of your Agency, Campus or Corporation. Racial Intelligence looks at diversity, inclusion and employee wellness thru a new lens that improves implicit bias and internal communication. Leaders learn (6) modules of Emotional Intelligence (EI), and Social Intelligence (SI), combined with the RITE Tools to enhance continued learning and communication. This recipe drives individual performance, towards team success.

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

Racial Intelligence (RI) combines EI and SI with the RITE Tools, like the Emotional Energy Ladder (shown in the video above). This unique leadership training helps create an awareness of how we affect others, and that only we have the power to make internal changes. Great leadership starts here. “Let’s help others Do the RIGHT thing out there!”

We teach you Ladder Leadership and how to get back to the top, no matter how many times you get knocked down, and how to help others climb to the top. Learn improved recruiting techniques using EI and SI. Potential new recruits know WHAT you, and HOW you do it, but if they don’t know WHY your department is the best place for them to work, WHY should they join you? Within this training, we help you improve your leadership, management, de-esclation, and recruiting skills.

We bring this course to your police department, corrections facility, university, academy, or corporate facility OR you can come to us in Florida.  Our leadership course provides your key leaders with the tools needed to successfully implement all facets of the RITE model EI+SI=RI, for personal and professional growth. Department-wide Racial Intelligence, starts at the top!

What is The RITE Tool Kit?

RITE Tool Kit red and yellow

The RITE Tool Kit is THE biggest difference from any other course offered for public service professionals. Top athletes use the right Tools to train with to improve their sport, yet employee training rarely leaves the individual with tools they can practice with and continue learning… until now!

All RITE Academy programs include key Tools for each student to work with and learn from, during and after class. These tools allow the learning to continue personally and professionally well after the class is over. This is the key to success with RITE training. It takes 21 days to change a habit and improve behavior.
