A way of thinking differently.

  • Dramatically improve officers’ performance during scenario training.
  • Improve officers’ performance in the field.

This course is designed for trainers who want: 

  • Cutting edge training focused on simple, effective methods to harness the power of the mind.
  • Tactics for conducting effective debriefings that will enhance the competence, confidence and performance of their officers.
  • Tips on maximizing the effectiveness of videos in their training program.
