What I liked best about this experience was that this type of training was offered - we often neglect motional conversations. The instructor could relate really well to law enforcement.

Great advice! Simple formula to the world's hardest task. This program taught me to label not only feelings but to lay out the situation. Doing the workshop with other command staff shows that upper command still wants to learn and improve.
