RITE Leadership Training @Chicago Police Department: NOV 14, 2018 (Chicago, IL)

November 14, 2018

RITE Leadership in Chicago

Private Training:

RITE Leadership Training at Chicago Police Department is a 1-day private class open to Chicago Police Leaders ONLY. Originally designed for police and corrections departments, RITE Academy has delivered training to multiple government agencies, military, universities, corporate clients and NGOs.


CPD has taken proactive measures to give their police 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.


Pro-active steps towards Chicago’s Mission

“The Chicago Police Department, as part of, and empowered by, the community, is committed to protect the lives, property, and rights of all people, to maintain order, and to enforce the law impartially.

We will provide quality police service in partnership with other members of the community. To fulfill our mission, we will strive to attain the highest degree of ethical behavior and professional conduct at all times..”

CPD Mission and Values


Georgia Chief tells CBS News “This is how RITE Training has benefited our Officers, our Community and our City.”

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, and helping 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:

  • EI and SI tools that go beyond DIVERSITY and InclusionEmotional 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
  • Community Inclusion and Trust – Work with community leaders using RITE Training
  • Full-day class filled with fun, engaging lessons, videos, laughter and learning!
