Are you going to be testing for a promotion soon? If you are or you plan on going for a promotion in the future, you need to listen to my next guest. He is the expert and helping you get promoted and his name is Bill Reilly. He is known as the Police Chief Coach and he is helping police officers of all ranks achieve their next promotion.

Bill was a police officer for over two decades and retired as an Assistant Chief of Police, and he want to bring his years of experience to his clients. Bill says he can help you in the following areas:

-My Oral Boards Made Easy for Police Promotion method was developed using easy to recall acronyms that correspond with commonly asked categories of oral exam questions. You can experience this method through coaching or through an online video e-Learning course.
-My Ultimate Oral Board Prep for Police Officer Candidates uses a similar design to assist those who are seeking to become police officers. Video course only.
-And my Police Chief Coach services are customized for those seeking to rise to, or excel in, the executive levels of policing. Due to the custom nature of this development process, it is only available as coaching.

All of these offerings help you make the complex more simple. Simplification is critical to recalling what to say and do at an oral exam or assessment center. Using easy to remember acronyms for the commonly asked categories of police oral board questions is the strategy that propelled me to the #1 position on each of my promotion lists: Sergeant, Lieutenant, Captain, Assistant Chief.

Here's how you can put these services to work for you:

Coaching - Oral Boards Made Easy for Police Promotion and Police Chief Coach services

Online Video Courses - Oral Boards Made Easy for Police Promotion and Ultimate Oral Board Prep for Police Officer Candidates

I am so excited to have my next guest on the show. Rodger Ruge stopped by and Rodger says the following. “Employee assistance, peer support and chaplaincy programs are failing because they are not used to their full potential. These traditional programs have never successfully addressed the stigma of suspicion and “career suicide” that using those services can create. Rodger created HeroTalk which offers a way for First Responders to take back control of their personal and professional lives by empowering real-world solutions that you, The Hero Community, can put into daily practice. They are about helping you build a level of resiliency that goes beyond mere survival, they help you THRIVE.”

In his previous life he was a 20 year, in the trenches, law enforcement veteran and survivor of post-traumatic stress. I’ve done just about every job possible in a law enforcement career…patrol, detective, street crimes, gang enforcement, mentoring, coaching, training management, motors and SWAT.

With the diversity of his background, by far his most favorite form of service is teaching, coaching and EMPOWERING others to their grandest visions of whom and what they wish to become. His greatest joy is helping clients get 'unstuck' and to hold them accountable to their declared actions steps as they move toward their goals, dreams and desires. Ultimately, every REAL COACH works toward the day where their client possesses the tools necessary to making coaching unnecessary - where the client is empowered to achieve anything they set their mind too, and that moves the needle forward on Life in the most profound way possible.

Rodger is also a podcast of the successful show, HeroTalk.org. Building resiliency for the First Responder Hero Community through my podcast, HeroTalk.org, my Life Coaching practice and my Mindfulness and Resiliency courses for First Responders.

 

Such a great show with Rodger Ruge.

I wasn’t sure if my next guest, Erik Salzenstein, was going to come on the show but I am so happy he did. At age 23, Erik found himself facing life in prison. With his back against the wall, he finally had to face his biggest enemy up until that point…..himself.

Erik had to go to prison to find freedom, but the truth is, he realized he lost his freedom long before that day in the courtroom. He recognized we can be in “prison” without physically being in prison.

He spent 4 years relentlessly pursuing personal growth, coaching, speaking, running workshops, and even being published in a newspaper for a speaking event while incarcerated.

Erik is a powerful and dynamic inspirational speaker whose message focuses on helping people break from from the chains that are holding them back and start creating a life of freedom and impact.

Erik is a dynamic speaker and incredible coach who radiates and brings out a special energy in all who he comes into contact with. It’s clear this was what he was meant to do.

If you want to energize your team, motivate, and inspire them to start taking stronger action Erik’s signature talk “From Prison to Purpose” is an easy decision.

Erik’s story is one that truly shows the power of change and what’s possible. From addiction, lack of identity, and no direction to a life of purpose, fulfillment, and impact.

From defunding the police, to finding your purpose this is a must listen to show.

Remember you "Make your own luck every single minute of every single day".  Do you ever say to yourself "wow, that person is really lucky?" or "Everything seems to be going right for that person?". I know I do sometimes, but what is Luck really?

Luck is defined as "success or failure apparently brought by chance rather than through one's own actions." While I do believe that sometimes things do happen by chance, I believe you can attract more luck by THE ACTIONS YOU TAKE. The most successful people are viewed as "lucky" because of the ACTIONS they have TAKEN in their life. Remember that NOTHING falls into your lap. We live in an instant gratification society, but in the real world ACTION must be take in order to  become successful and hence MORE LUCKY. 

Remember you can control how much luck comes your way. Success leave clues and it's is a byproduct of ACTION. 

Go after your dreams and goals. Not tomorrow, next week or next year - NOW. The more action you take the more luck you will make. 

Go out and conquer your day and week and stay tuned for more great episodes on The CJEvolution Podcast

So excited to have my next guest on the show. Travis Howze stopped by the CJEvolution Podcast. Travis is an internationally touring comedian and motivational speaker who spent 14 years in the military and emergency services as a U.S. Marine, Police Officer and Firefighter. Whether performing at corporate events and fundraisers to top comedy clubs, colleges and multiple tours overseas for the troops, Travis has become a comedic demand in multiple arena’s who always leaves his audiences craving more!

Known as the military and emergency services voice of comedy, the topics of Travis’ humor are limitless: from being raised in South Carolina to married life and fatherhood to his time in uniform and much more. Whether dodging bullets, chasing bad guys, running into burning buildings or just being a dad, Travis is always FUNNY UNDER FIRE! Appearing on Gotham Comedy Live, HULUTV’s Coming to the Stage, National Geographic and NBC’s Night Shift, Travis was dubbed “Artist To Watch” by Young Hollywood Magazine.

Not only is Travis the Author of the Best Selling book “Create Your Own Light, an autobiography of his life on “Finding Post Traumatic Purpose.” His album, “Reporting for Duty,” debuted at number 7 of top 100 comedy albums, and is in regular rotation on SiriusXm. IGNITING top level comedy stages for over a decade, he’s a comedian with an extremely unique and marketable edge that has never been seen before, thus allowing him to connect and develop a very loyal brotherhood style fan base of military, emergency services personnel and their supporters from all over.

In June of 2007 while working a furniture warehouse fire in Charleston, South Carolina, 9 of his brother firefighters tragically perished in the line of duty while rescuing a trapped civilian. Due to injuries that he sustained in that same fire, Travis was forced to leave the job that he truly loved.

 

Such a great and inspirational show.

Hello everyone and welcome back to Microcast Monday. It's the start of a new week. New opportunities are ahead of you. Change your mindset and go after them. Special thanks to all the brave men and women who work in the Criminal Justice Field. Remember you are honored, cherished and above all you are LOVED.

If you love coffee, you are going to LOVE the products from FOUR SIGMATIC. From coffee to cocoa's they have it all. I am a big fan of the Lions Mane Mushroom Coffee and I bet you will be too. Check out their link at www.cjevolution.com . You will get 15% off your purchases using the promo code CJEVO.

Do you ever feel like you are floating around life with no purpose? I know I do sometimes, and when I start going down that path I come back to my why. I think about my path in life and why I am doing the things I am doing at this moment.  If you know your why - Great. I am willing to bet that a LOT of you don't know your why. I think about the movie Forrest Gump and the feather at the end of the movie that is getting tossed around by the wind. That is MOST people out their.  A lot of people are on their current path because of other factors. Maybe your parents told you to go on a certain path. Maybe you think you can't do anything else with your life. Maybe you think you are STUCK in the position you are in right now (Side note- I don't believe we are ever really stuck). 

Take some time to figure out your why? Once you do that you will get Clarity and it will improve your LIFE. Success if yours. Remember to cultivate and develop your why.

So many of our brave men and women are suffering in silence and it doesn’t have to be that way. All you have to do is ask for help. That is the hardest step, but it’s not impossible. There are many resources out there for anyone who is suffering.

My next guest, Michael Sugrue, suffered for a long time until he asked for help. Michael began his law enforcement career in the United States Air Force as a Security Forces Officer in 1998. As a Security Forces Officer, Michael specialized in Law Enforcement, Global Force Protection, Anti-Terrorism, Nuclear Security, Foreign Air Field Assessments and Air Base Ground Defense.

Michael served in a variety of assignments including: Flight Leader, Flight Commander, Senior Watch Officer, Chief of Command Post and Chief of Security Forces.

Michael served all over the United States, Europe, the Middle East and South America. He was also a Security Forces Phoenix Raven with the unique identifier of #1173. Michael honorably separated from the Air Force as a Captain in 2004.

Immediately after the Air Force, Michael was hired by the Walnut Creek Police Department where he served in a variety of assignments including: Patrol Officer, Driver Training Instructor (EVOC) Field Training Officer (FTO), SIU Detective, Undercover CA DOJ Narcotic Task Force Agent (Contra Costa County), Public Information Officer (PIO) and Patrol Sergeant.

Michael was awarded the Walnut Creek PD Distinguished Service Medal in 2014 for his heroic and life-saving actions during a Fatal Officer Involved Shooting in 2012.

Michael ultimately medically retired in 2018. He is now a Peer Volunteer at the West Coast Post Trauma Retreat (WCPR) and an Ambassador for Save A Warrior (SAW).

Michael is a dedicated advocate for awareness, prevention, education, training on Post Traumatic Stress Injury (PTSI) and First Responder Suicide Prevention. Michael continues to speak at law enforcement agencies all over the United States. 

A great and informative interview.
