1. Racial Intelligence Training & Engagement - RITE

This course was designed specifically for public service professionals, government, and military, who are engaged with handling high pressure situations. This course was specifically designed to incorporate cultural sensitivity, de-escalation techniques, and improved communication engagement.

The course formula is

  • Emotional Intelligence (EI) – the Officer or Employee +
  • Social Intelligence (SI) – Engagement with others =
  • Racial Intelligence (RI) – Positive communication to ourselves and those we engage with

This course is very effective, because it expands the person’s communication abilities, to better engage with others. The six competencies incorporated into the course are:

  1. Emotional Awareness
  2. Behavioral Self Control
  3. Ethics and Integrity
  4. Situational Awareness
  5. Empathy Communication
  6. Conflict Management

Anyone employed in the public service profession, would find multiple benefits in taking this course.  

2. Non-Combative De-escalation Communication Training - NCDC

This RITE program is dedicated to our public service professionals and military personnel who handle the day-to-day pressures of combative engagement, and who handle horrific incidents. We teach handling one’s self during potential lethal situations, using non-lethal methods. The goal is to de-escalate situations where possible, providing better outcomes.

Officers will learn how to connect and communicate during high impact combative engagement using Emotional Intelligence Awareness and Social Intelligence engagement. Controlling your emotions during a very stressful event, like combative engagement, is key to achieving better results, as well as saving lives. Officers will learn how to handle emotions after traumatic events lessening the effects of PTSD, learning how to release negative traumatic events through behavioral self-control techniques. (RITE’s Mindfulness Techniques – RMT)

NCDC Training is critical in high stress situations, where split-second decisions are made. One must know how to assess the situation quickly (using space-of-mind techniques), control their emotions, and proceed forward towards the best outcome.

Part of this course is understanding the effects of unconscious (Implicit) bias, influence on present judgements, past engagements (good and bad), childhood experiences, cultural influences, self-perpetuating biases, and stereo-typing, as all can affect the outcome of a heightened situation.

PTSD influences with repetitive engagement in stressful situations (especially combative situations) can form bias-based behavior. Unconscious bias-based influence can hinder as well as escalate a situation. RITE Academy focuses on how to achieve better outcomes, de-escalate situations, as well as become aware of when bias influences (implicit and explicit) are impacting the situation through emotional awareness training.

Our RITE Training is designed to look at combative engagement thru a new lens, understanding how implicit bias and continued repetitive combative events can affect performance and decision making. Emotional Intelligence helps identify negative emotions in the present moment, how to control bad behaviors, improve communication, and how to de-escalate high-pressure situations where possible. 

3. Stress Prevention Training - SPT

Demanding everyday pressures (work, family, health, financial) can cause high levels of stress. With long periods of any stress, we can exceed our ability to cope, causing physical and emotional breakdowns. Experiencing frequent illness, mood swings, high blood pressure, headaches and back aches is not uncommon with continued stress. Inability to handle stress can cause lost work days, failure to perform, and can even lead to suicide.

SPT takes stress prevention training to a whole new level of awareness, as we focus on helping the individual through Emotional Intelligence (EI). Mindful-based stress reduction takes personal awareness and then practice.

What makes SPT successful are the take-away tools students work with and take home after the class. The RITE Mindful take away tools will become your go-to friend when faced with a stressful situation.

To consciously and systematically work on reducing ones own stress is the key to career resiliency. We help you stay focused on what is important to you, by understanding your “WHY”. We teach you how to recognize the warning signs of stressful reactions, when to slow down and most important how to PIVOT so you can get back on track with what is important. Mindful awareness provides clarity of what is important to you, understanding that you have many choices, and options to choose from, and then pivoting to finding the best solution.

Often, we act too quickly before looking at the whole picture. Part of this mindfulness SPT training is creating space of mind using all your sensory abilities, then reacting in a calmer state. We combine both Emotional Intelligence (You) and Social Intelligence (Others), for you to look at the whole picture, before making the right conscious decision that best fits your needs.

SPT training brings about a more inner piece, even when the outside world is spiraling out of control around you. You will obtain more contentment within yourself, treat others more fairly, and have a heightened appreciation for life. 

4. Use of Force Remediation Training - UFRT

UFRT was designed specifically for public service professionals, government, and military, who are engaged with handling high pressure situations. This course is designed to provide remediation follow up training after a use-of-force incident, or combination of multiple use-of-force incidents.

UFRT specifically looks at use-of-force incidents and works through them. We help the agency reinforce the company’s initiatives in proper use-of-force engagement using Racial Intelligence. Emotional and Social Intelligence engagement skills help the employee move forward, improving career resiliency. Accountability initiatives are then put in place to reduce future use-of-force incidents.

After the course, we provide one-on-one mental coaching sessions, if needed, as well as one-on-one sessions with in-house tactical trainers through training consultations.

5. Cultural Sensitivity Training - CST

We also work individually through coaching, per group sessions, and a teaching course incorporating class engagement scenarios that are fun, and impactful. This cultural diversity course imparts racial bias in a new light by helping the student help themselves, personally and professionally. When we feel better about ourselves, we will treat others more fairly in the work environment.

We can also work one-on-one with in-house personnel to build a pro-active model, or addressing a reactive situation that has already occurred within the organization.

We provide take-away tools for each class participant, along with helpful exercises to practice with after the class. Improving situational awareness helps employees achieve the best desired outcome by being able to see the whole picture, and picking the best option. This can successfully be achieved through Social Intelligence Training.
