RITE Leadership Framingham State U: DEC 18-19, 2017 (Framingham, MA)

December 18, 2017 - December 19, 2017

RITE University Leadership

Private Training:

RITE Leadership Training for Framingham State University will be conducted over a 2-day period. This private training is open to University administration, Title IX coordinators, Residence life staff, Police officers and other Professional staff, with a maximum class size of 90 each day. Originally designed for police and corrections departments, RITE Academy has delivered training to multiple government agencies, universities, corporate clients and NGOs.

FSU has taken proactive measures to give their entire administration staff and police officers RITE training and tools that will help improve communication and reduce the current 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 a stronger community

“Framingham State University draws strength from its diversity. We are an institution where individuals of differing cultures, perspectives, and experiences are welcomed, respected, valued and supported. In response to recent events, we must not allow those with hate in their hearts to divide us. The best way to stand up to this type of vile behavior is by uniting as a community against it.”

– President F. Javier Cevallos


Leaders talk “What makes RITE Training a great fit for them”

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, in order to help 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!
