Helping Kids Perform


The pressure and stress of life that most people live under makes society a difficult environment for law enforcement professionals to work within, especially when they’re charged with the complex job of serving the public, keeping the peace, and bringing criminals to justice. Indeed, a broad list of real-world challenges – terrorism, poverty, crime, mental health issues, racial tension, drugs, greed – create impediments that make the job of policing our communities difficult and at times, outright dangerous. And yet, we depend on the selfless men and women of law enforcement to put their life at risk to protect us virtually every day. At the same time, the system rightly demands that they not overstep their authority and that they interact with the people they’re in business to serve in a fair, respectful and balanced way. But these opposing forces can sometimes lead to situations where officers and agents are torn between feeling like they’re damned if they take action and equally damned if they don’t. This cognitive tug-of-war can serve to sabotage their mindset and their personal performance and it can sometimes lead to errors in both judgment and execution…with disastrous results.

In ‘Performance Thinking for Law Enforcement’ the author shares principles derived from over 4 decades of real-world experience in the high-performance domain to help you understand how the way that you think influences how you feel, how you behave and ultimately, how you perform. This knowledge, together with the ACT Model technique that is discussed in detail within the book will show you how to more effectively control the way that you think so that you can optimize your performance on command, rather than mentally sabotage it. The end result is better performance and greater safety.
