RITE Leadership: JUL 26, 2017 Georgia Police Chiefs Conf. (Savannah, GA)

July 26, 2017

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 trainingRITE Tools, like the Emotional Energy Ladder (instructor’s banner-size seen in the photo), that participants in this training receive, 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, in order to help others do the same.

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! Speaking of which, take a look at how Ohio engaged CBS News to cover RITE Training
