RITE Leadership Presentation – DEC 7, 2016 Missouri Police Chiefs Conference

December 7, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC+0

Racial Intelligence for Executive Leadership in Policing


One wrong move caught on camera, can put a black cloud over an entire department. RITE Leadership Training teaches critical components of Emotional Intelligence (EI), and Social Intelligence (SI), combined with the RITE Tools. The RITE combination drives individual performance, towards team success.

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, that everyone 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. Great leadership starts with doing the RITE thing.

This lays the groundwork towards positive employee engagement, on and off the streets, keeping negative media attention away. Let’s give the media something good to talk about!

Goal: To learn to use Emotional and Social de-escalation and accountability Tools that improve Officer wellness, enhance department recruitment, and develop community trust.
