Emotional & Social Intelligence Officer Wellness for Public Service Professionals – FL

June 21, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm UTC+0

Course Objectives & Goals
RITE Academy law enforcement handbookThe main objective
of the Emotional & Social Intelligence Officer Wellness Course is to help develop new awareness and strategies that will bring public service professionals and the communities they serve together. Cultural change starts with the individual’s ability to understand and control their emotions, especially in pressure situations. Emotional Intelligence (EI) and Social Intelligence (SI) has been a proven teaching model for employees of corporations for years. RITE Academy makes this powerful training now available for all public service professionals teaching the RITE Model EI+SI=RI.

The Goal of this course increases the awareness in one’s own emotions (EI), heightens the situational awareness when engaging with others (SI), and creates a robust diversity and inclusion to de-escalate whenever possible using Racial Intelligence (RI). The most effective community policing strategies include de-escalating, and working with the community (as a guardian) instead of with force (as a warrior).
