"That First Responder was really insensitive and treated me like just another call."


  • CONNECT with the members of the public, to help them feel heard and validated, which leads to more cooperation.
  • COMMUNICATE efficiently and effectively, to help the public understand what you need in order to serve them at the highest level.
  • CREATE better relationships with the public, in order to strengthen community relations and trust, while decreasing the complaints against members.

  • COMMUNICATE your thoughts and feelings in a clear way, to share your wants and needs.
  • CREATE better relationships so that you can have the support you need and feel more fulfilled in your life.

The Effects of Stress

In the United States alone, stress related illness and disease costs nearly $300 Billion per year. Medical/legal/insurance/worker’s compensation costs, accidents, sick day usage, decreased productivity, employee turnover are the results of this costly stress.   Article:  2018, The American Institute of Stress, “Workplace Stress” Summary: In the United State alone, Stress Related Illness and Disease costs nearly $300 Billion per year."  


In a 2018 study, it was determined that police officers and firefighters were more likely to die by suicide than in the line of duty. The study discusses the exposure to trauma which can lead to several forms of mental illness, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and suicide, up to five times higher than the rates of the civilian population.  Article 2018, Ruderman Foundation, “Study: Police Officers and Firefighters are more like to die by suicide than in the Line of Duty.”  


In a 2018 study conducted by the Police Executive Research Forum, it determined that of the 400 police departments in the United States surveyed, there was a 66% decrease in new officer recruitment and retention. An average of 29% voluntarily left law enforcement less than a year and an additional 40 % leaving less than five years.  Article 2018, Washington Post: “Who wants to be a police officer?

Coaching and Consulting

  •  TRAINING: Communication is the best tools First Responders can have, within their Profession, with the Public, and in their Personal lives. Coaching and Consulting can identify the strengths and weaknesses of member’s in order to help them improve their effective communication.
  • MEDIATION AND CONFLICT RESOLUTION: For internal issues with performance, behavior, or incidents, Coaching and Consulting can assist in resolving the issues quickly, effectively and long-term.
  • DEBRIEFING OF CRITICAL INCIDENTS: Officer Involved Shootings, on the job injuries, and highly traumatic calls can impact member’s mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. Coaching and Consulting can create an environment where members can share in a group or individual setting, to discuss their thoughts and feelings, in order to process and move beyond the incident. 
  • PEER SUPPORT: In addition to Debriefing of Critical Incidents, Coaching and Consulting can offer on-going support to members. Over time, this consistent skill of conversation can greatly reduce member’s stress level, and keep them focused in their professional and personal lives.
