April 30, 2017 - May 2, 2017

Racial Intelligence for Executive Leadership in Policing


Racial Intelligence brings cultural diversity training up to today’s standards. Officers must learn to look thru a new lens that improves their implicit bias and internal communication. Teaching tools and techniques that improve the officer’s communication on the front line, to help them De-escalate calls, is step one. RITE Academy teaches Racial Intelligence that includes  critical components of Emotional Intelligence (EI), and Social Intelligence (SI), combined with the RITE Tools.

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 emotional intelligence trainingThe RITE Tools, like the Emotional Energy Ladder (seen in the photo), makes us aware of our emotions, how we affect others, and that only we have the power to make those changes. Great leadership starts with doing the RITE thing.
