Your job is to instil discipline, not be a disciplinarian. If you need someone at the Academy to be a disciplinarian it should be the Academy Director, not the trainers.
Your job is to train, teach and coach people, not weed people out.
Your job is to instil competence and confidence and build trainees up, not beat them down.
Your job is to teach recruits how to manage stress, not to stress them out.
Your job is to help them learn how to work out to “be fit to be useful” in limited time, with limited equipment, not to use physical exercise as punishment, or to “smoke recruits” with PT to see who really wants to be there.
Your job is to teach in a manner that enhances understanding, learning, retention, and the ability to recall and apply the information once they have graduated, not to simply teach to the test at the Academy.
Your job is to help them understand and be prepared for the realities of the profession, not to make them afraid to go out on the street and do their job.
Your job is to be a trainer, coach, mentor, leader, and role model. Your job is one of the most influential, important, and challenging jobs in our profession. Always remember what your job is, do it with pride, do it well and embrace the “5 No Rule”.
