METRO has taken proactive measures to give their police leaders RITE training and tools that will help improve communication in the agency and on the streets. Teaching critical components that include both Emotional Intelligence (EI) and Social Intelligence (SI), that improves resiliency awareness, as well as personal and professional relationships.

Although positive changes are happening at METRO, we have not changed our commitment to providing the best possible police services to our community.

YouTube Video – RITE Professional Workplace is for ALL in Public Service

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 begins and ends 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.”
