If you have been reading my Excellence in Training, W.I.N. or am I that man? blogs for any time you know I am a big fan of Seth Godin. This recent post from Godin struck me as a challenge to all trainers:
From healthy to toast…
Something is broken, we know it’s broken, we can fix it right away and we’ll learn from it.
It’s broken, we know it’s broken, we fixed it, don’t worry, but we learned nothing, it will break again, I’m just doing my job.
It’s broken, we know it’s broken, but we don’t think we can afford to fix it.
It’s broken, but we don’t know it’s broken.
It’s not broken (it is, but we’re not willing to admit it).
It’s broken, we may or may not know it’s broken, but mostly, we don’t care enough to try to fix it, to learn how we could fix it better or even to accept help from people who care.
The Challenge – Step back and ask yourself these question:
- What is broken in my training, what stage of broken is it at and what do I need to do now to fix it?
- What is broken in my agency, what stage of broken is it at and what do I need to do now to begin to fix it?
- What is broken in the law enforcement culture, what stage of broken is it at and what do I need to do now to fix it?
