Hello everyone and welcome bank to the show. I hope you all had a great and safe Thanksgiving Holiday. Thanks to all the brave men and women who protect us every day. Keep up the great work.

I am so excited that my book EVOLVE is here. I would love to get you an autographed copy of this amazing micro-book. I wrote this for you, the criminal justice professional. Reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn for hard copy. If you would like a FREE eBook version of EVOLVE head over to www.cjevolution.com

We all have faced and will continue to face many difficulties in life. I will show you how to turn those difficulties into opportunities for growth and development.

I’m here to help you come up with sustainable, long-term solutions so you can start living the life you’re meant to live.

I have many years of experience working in one of the most difficult professions in the world – law enforcement. I have coached, mentored and trained some of the best police officers, first-responders, and numerous law enforcement professionals. Through my top ranked podcast, I’ve been blessed to have so many great and inspirational guests on the show that I have learned from over the years.

I’m here to pass my education and experience on to you. Sign up for a FREE Discovery Call here:

Big shout out to our sponsor Detectachem. This great company is helping keep our brave men and women safer through mobile threat detection that fits in the palm of your hand. See how they can help your agency. See their link at www.cjevolution.com

I always love having former LEO’s on the show that have retired after a great law enforcement career and continue to give back as successful entrepreneurs. Marc Neal is such a person, and he is on the show. He is the founder of Onyx Training Group.

Onyx Training Group is a law enforcement and corporate communication, principles, and decision-making training company with an online presence, but a direct participation focus. The information presented in the courses is the result of my 20 police career and over 2 decades of teaching officers and civilians in various disciplines, including advanced tactics and cross cultural diversity and anti-biased policing strategies.

Marc believes in the profession of law enforcement and does everything he can to help increase its image and perception, while also helping to increase the abilities of the officers who he works with. Marc doesn’t think policing is without its issues, and while being realistic, he is also idealistic in that policing is fundamentally critical to the quality of life in our society. He also believes that agencies must select, train and then sustain good quality people as the Servant Warriors of their communities. Part of sustaining good people is observing the intrinsic human value in all people. Not just is lip service, but in observable action. When organizations display a belief and support in their people, their people, being full, can project that belief and support to their community.

Onyx Training focuses on building that feeling of sustenance, which translates into ability, which increases confidence, which produces success.

Hello everyone and welcome back to Microcast Monday. Happy Thanksgiving Week! Special thanks to all the brave men and women who work in the criminal justice field. Thank you for what you do. Keep up the great work!

I am so excited that my book EVOLVE is finally here. You might have seen advanced copies floating around, but now it's available for you! This microbook is filled with inspiration, motivation and successful tips and suggestions to help you both personally and professionally. If you want an autographed copy of the book reach out to me through social media - Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn. If you want a FREE eBook copy of the book head over to www.cjevolution.com

Special thanks to our sponsor Detectachem. This amazing company is helping keep our first responders safe by offering mobile threat detection for the palm of your hand. Detecting drugs and explosives. Check out their link at www.cjevolution.com and see who they can help you protect your troops.

In this episode of Microcast Monday I want to take a moment and talk about the "us versus them mentality." I had this mindset for many years where I thought if someone didn't work in the criminal justice field, or didn't have a gun and badge then they couldn't trusted. Over the years I learned how detrimental that mindset was, at least for me. Sooner or later you will leave this great profession and then what? Maybe you want to work in the private sector? Maybe you want to start your own business? Do you think the mindset of "us versus them" is going to help you succeed? Probably not. You have realize that most people are good and we deal with only the fraction of people that are doing bad. When this happens over and over our mindset becomes jaded. However,you can begin to recognize it and take steps to change or mindset. I am not saying compromise your officer safety, but I am saying it's good to develop and cultivate friendships outside of law enforcement.

If you have the above mindset how did it develop? Do you know? Write it down and then realize that these are not reflective of society as a whole. Remember you can always change your mindset.

Happy Thanksgiving Week and everyone be safe!

Have a great week and go conquer your day.

Hello everyone and welcome back to the show. Special thanks to all the brave first responders who keep our communities safe. Thank you very much! A very big shout out to all the Veterans out there! Thank you so much for your service. Without your sacrifice, we wouldn't have this great country. We love all of you!

Thanks to our sponsor, Four Sigmatic. If you love coffee, you are going to love the products from Four Sigmatic. From cocoa's to coffee this great company makes amazing products. My personal favorite is the Lions Mane Mushroom Coffee. You will love it! Check the link out here: www.cjevolution.com

If you are struggling to keep up with your extra duty program I want to tell you about Extra Duty Solutions. This company helps law enforcement agencies add efficiency and effectiveness to their extra duty programs by offering assistance in the following areas: Client interaction, Scheduling, Officer Payments, Feedback, Problem Resolution and much more. Their services are provided at NO COST to the department and a minimal cost to the client. There programs can also be customized to meet the goals and unique needs of any agency.

Again, special thanks to all of our veterans. Here are some ways you can show appreciation to our brave men and women.

1) Show up - There are many events to celebrate veterans. Pick one and show your support. Veterans love this!

 

2) Donate - There is always a need to more resources. There are many organizations that you can donate to that support veterans.

 

3) Ask a veteran about their service - We all know someone who has served and today is a great day to ask them about it. Remember to be supportive but not intrusive. Some vets don't like talking about certain things.

 

4) Write a veteran - If you know a veteran, send them a card or an e-card to show support. Don't know a veteran? Look up the closest military installation and send a card there. These small acts are very appreciated.

 

5) Remember not to confuse Veterans Day with Memorial Day - There is a difference. Veterans day is a day to honor ones who have served and who are still with us. Memorial day is to honor the brave who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Combing the two and diminish the significance of both .

 

6) Get outdoors with a veteran - Spending time outdoors with a veteran or a veterans family can improve physical and mental health and boots emotional well-being.

On this Microcast Monday I want to talk about your 4th Quarter Check Up. How are you doing now as we head into the end of the year? Specifically, how are you doing in the following areas:

1) Health - Everything revolves around your health. When your health suffers, everything else will too. Are you keeping the promises that you made to yourself or others at the beginning of the year? We generally don't focus on our health until something goes wrong. Remember it's never to late to start a new path.

2) Finances - How are your finances? Are you on the right path? Are you achieving the goals you set for yourself or your family at the beginning of the year? Remember its never too late to start a new good habit.

 

3) Relationships - Relationships are the key to personal and professional success. Cultivate and nourish your relationships. Are you on track this year?

 

4) Career - Are you on track with your career goals that you made at the beginning of the year? If yes, great if not what happened? Remember you still have the rest of the year to go!

You might have more categories to add to this, but these are some of the most important I use for my personal check ups. Remember that you need to take care of yourself FIRST in order to take care of others.
