Private Instructor Training for Corrections


FDC  has taken proactive measures to give their 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.

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 Ladder for OfficersRITE Tools, like the Emotional Energy Ladder (instructor’s banner-size in the photo), that every student in this training receives, makes us aware of our emotions, how we affect others, and that only we have the power to make those changes.
