Winning Mind Training exists to serve the courageous men and women of the law enforcement profession through our seminars, workshops and courses.
Law enforcement is one of the most important, most complex, challenging, demanding, and potentially rewarding professions in society today. It is a profession of courageous men and women who are committed to serving their communities at the highest level and want to be great at what they do.
The ancient Greeks believed that every person has it within them to be a hero. They defined a hero as a protector; someone who has the ability to not only look after himself or herself, but also to look after someone else. They have the physical abilities, the knowledge, and the desire to serve. The core strengths of the hero are compassion, love and a commitment to something bigger than themselves. Law enforcement is a profession of heroes and Winning Mind Training’s mission is to serve those heroes through practical training in leadership, mindset and professional development for trainers.
At Winning Mind Training we work with:
- Law enforcement leaders who are willing to Dare to Be Great in order to most effectively serve and lead the people in their organization.
- Law enforcement officers who are committed to training their mind, body and spirit in order to become the best law enforcement professional and best person their can be.
- Law enforcement trainers who want to be great at what they do in order to create the best possible learning environment for their officers and instill in them the highest possible level of competence and confidence.
- To achieve excellence and create a Legacy of Excellence it is critical to understand and focus on Life’s Most Powerful Question: What’s Important Now? (W.I.N.)
- Leadership, like greatness, is a choice and a process.
- Leadership is not about rank position and title and therefore everyone is in a position to lead.
- Leading is a skill that is learned and can be developed.
- Excellence in the field is a result of Excellence in Training.
- Strive for Excellence not Perfection.
- Excellence in Training is a shared responsibility.
- Your legacy is something you create every day through the way you live.
To that end Winning Mind Training offers:
Innovative, practical, engaging, thought provoking presentations and training programs designed to enhance competence and confidence through knowledge and understanding.
