Resilience in Practice
Today’s police and military professionals are mired in a VUCA world defined by: volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. What’s worse is: this state has been a constant for the past few years with no end in sight. How do we prepare our professionals to respond optimally, to maintain a high state of readiness and to sustain the heart and mind required of our warrior/guardians? Learning the tools and practices of resilience and coherence empowers us to nourish our sources of human energy (physical, mental, spiritual and emotional) to diminish the impact of what is too often an “impoverished environment” predictive of burnout, cynicism and disengagement. This course will provide insight and perspective on how resilience is trained, implemented, and practiced, particularly in these challenging times.
Blue Courage Resilience
Explores and educates participants on the important of resilience and stress management that the policing profession demands today. The four-hour course draws on the Institute of HeartMath’s research on resilience, energy and peak performance. The course will also examine positive psychology and mindfulness. Participants will learn the process of “Pattern Interruption” – the practice of quieting the mind by breaking the pattern of our negative thoughts and emotions – the chaos of the day. All designed to create increased mindfulness, awareness, focus and performance.READ MORE ABOUT OUR HEARTMATH PARTNERSHIP...
Heart-Focused Leadership is based on the notion that leadership is an art and craft born in the heart rather than an intellectual exercise. Heart-focused leaders deeply embrace the concept of both taking care of those in their charge, coupled with the responsibility to grow and develop the capacity of their people. Leaders who bring love and passion to their craft are far better suited to build lasting relationships, establish deep trust, unleash loyalty and engagement, and advance the organization. Today’s leadership challenge rests not in more knowledge and technology, but in our capacity to lead with courage, grace, love and humanness. This session will illuminate the path to leadership greatness and reveal the essential development process; and, both challenge and inspire attendees to embark on the journey.
Through the Courageous Leadership team, thought leaders and learners from all backgrounds can enhance their capacity for optimal performance, to influence, and thrive!LEARN MORE...

Mind, Body, Speak with Marshall Jones
Actors, singers, and speakers agree: Your voice is the secret to commanding an audience, controlling emotion and connecting to others. This affects all of us, regardless of our profession, yet our voices go untrained. Research shows, that body language and tone of voice, make up 93% of how we communicate. MindBodySpeak combines these and trains you to use your BodyTone affectively.
