I had such a great talk with my friend Dan Oblinger. We talked about his law enforcement experience, leadership and so much more. 

Dan is the sole proprietor of Leadercraft, a private company devoted to excellence in speaking and corporate training. He is a refreshingly unique voice in corporate retreats and keynotes. He is a father, husband, philosopher, and lawman. He has been successful in his professional life as a hostage negotiator, undercover investigator, human resources consultant, chicken rancher, drug recognition expert, ditch digger, grocery bagger, onion ring maker, and beat cop. Dan has used his unique experiences and high energy humor to educate audiences since 2008. He has carved out a niche as a leading expert in providing speaking, training, and executive consulting for all industries and across the country. His passion is sharing listening, negotiating, and leadership skills so everyone can become more authentic leaders and lovers.

Dan’s message is simple. Everyone around you is valuable, unrepeatable, irreplaceable and has a powerful story to tell. Smart leaders and authentic lovers of people invite them to tell their story and create a culture where it can happen. When companies do this, they reap the benefit of engaged employees, increase revenue, innovation, and resilience in crisis. Dan’s workshop participants learn to love their duty of leadership by managing conflict and engagement through listening and negotiation.

Hello everyone and welcome back to the show. I love MONDAY's and you should too. Remember if start your Monday, and any day for that matter, that is what the universe is going to give you in return. Special thanks to all the brave men and women who work in the criminal justice field. Very few can do what you do. Thank you for your continued service in a very difficult environment.

So excited about the recent session (Session 1) of TRIAD Leadership and Development. It was a HUGE success and thanks to all the participants who were part of this historic event. Thanks to my good friends and business partners Carrie Wooten & Jerrod Hardy. TRIAD is on a mission: To Equip organizational leaders with the skills and ability to unlock their leadership potential, get the most out of their career and live their purpose beyond the badge.

If you love coffee, and I know most of you do, check out the great products from Four Sigmatic. They have everything from Coffee's to Cocoa's and I am a big fan of their Lions Mane Mushroom Coffee. It's better for you than regular coffee and best of off it doesn't taste like mushrooms! Check out their link at www.cjevolution.com

On to the show...

I had a friend of mine recently ask how I became so fearless. I laughed and replied I am scared all the time! I just don't let my fears cripple me to the point of not taking action. I head into my fears and overcome them. Everyone fears something, but what most do is stay in the fear mindset. They don't realize that EVERYTHING they want, success, money, the new job, the new shift, the new promotion, is on the OTHER side of your fears.

And here is another secret. Most of the things we fear about NEVER come to pass. That's right. And if that fear does come, its usually not as big or as problematic as we made it out to be.

Once you begin taking on your fears and overcoming them, you become more confident, resilient and happier. Conquer your fears and you will conquer your life.

Like what you hear?

Work with me 1:1 with my EVOLVE Coaching. I help first responders and criminal justice professionals who are overwhelmed with personal and professional obstacles become more stronger and more resilient so they will become happier and more successful.

On to Microcast Monday.

If you are pissed off or irritated and no one wants to be around you, I want you to do one thing. I want you to think about the OTHER YOU. Let me explain.  I want you to think about a time when you were happy and content, and I want you to tap into that feeling and remember how you felt.

As we all know there are peaks and valleys in a criminal justice career and personally I stayed in a valley for many years of my career until I shifted my mindset. I started doing things that made me happier. I started taking care of myself better, starting reading better things and started associating with people who lifted me up instead of keeping me down. I want you to do the same. I know the job can and often wears on you, but you don't have to let that consume you all the time.

Shift your mindset for the better and your life will change for the better.

I have helped many in the criminal justice field re-kindle that fire they once had, develop that overcome mentality and become more resilient, and I can that for you too. Let's get your back on your road to success.

Let’s hop on your DISCOVERY call now. Follow this link: https://www.cjevolution.com/personal-coaching/

Ever wonder why some Police Chiefs or Sheriffs are more successful than their counterparts? I am willing to bet one of the reasons for their success is their ability to develop, cultivate and sustain positive relationship, both within the community and within the agencies they lead.

I believe so many senior law enforcement executives are lost to this. Either they don’t care, or they don’t believe its important enough to pay attention to.

On to the show with Sheriff Leon Lott. Sheriff Lott is the Sheriff of Richland County Sheriffs Office, which is one of the largest sheriff’s department in the Southeastern United States, and is often seen on the very successful law enforcement show, LIVE PD.

Sheriff Lott lot has been the Sheriff of Richland County SO for 20 years. He is obviously doing something right and we dig into that, along with important topics, on this great interview.

A little more information on Sheriff Lott.

Sheriff Lott is a 43-year law enforcement officer who has served as the Richland County Sheriff for more than 20 years.

In January 2018, the Richland County Sheriff’s Department (RCSD) became the first sheriff’s office in the country to conduct research on the impact of adding the words “PEACE OFFICER” to its fleet of 600-plus marked patrol vehicles. The success of this first-ever PEACE OFFICER identity initiative is now measurable.

 

Simple Cost-Effective Program Demonstrates Change is Possible

 

As part of a charitable initiative operated by the nonprofit Police2Peace, the RCSD study commenced in January 2018. The randomized controlled trial collected data from RCSD’s eight regions, which had the wording “PEACE OFFICER” placed on certain patrol vehicles and not on others. Data was collected through surveys of RCSD deputies, employees, and the citizens living and working within the county’s various communities. The objective was to gauge the impact on citizens seeing, and officers driving vehicles, displaying “PEACE OFFICER” decals.

 

In other areas surveyed, the designation did not appear on patrol vehicles. Following the six-month study period, PEACE OFFICER decals were then placed on all vehicles surveyed during the research project. Among community members surveyed since Jan. 2018, nearly 90% “strongly agreed” that the community “is generally very supportive” of RCSD. More than 75% of those within the community who had seen the decals “strongly agreed that “the community is generally safe” as opposed to 55% who did not see the decals. When the question was posed,

“Do you think people can change?” Nearly 90% who saw the decals “strongly agreed” as opposed to about 65% who did not see the decals.

 

Sheriff Leon Lott, Leading the Pilot Program

 

“We do so much more than simply enforce the law,” says Sherriff Lott. “We do enforce the law to be sure, but peace officer is a more accurate description of who we are and what we do. We are keeping the peace. We’re building strong relationships. And we’re educating the citizens we serve how to best to safeguard themselves from all threats. With the words PEACE OFFICER on our cars, we are getting people to talk about what a peace officer really is. We are changing perceptions and we are redefining what we do and what being a peace officer means to us individually and as a department.”

 

So many great takeaways and thank you Sheriff Lott for your years of dedicated service.

On to the show -

As you head into the week I want you to think about this. Are you throwing in the towel? Are you giving up on a dream or aspiration because you haven't seen the results you want as of yet? Any success takes time, and you have to keep pushing through. Every successful person in the world built success over time. It didn't happen "over night". You can do it and you will do it. Just don't give up - Don't be like the majority of people.

Remember that the success you are looking for is closer than you think.

It’s always an honor when military personnel come on the show. Whether they are active duty or veterans, I believe we all can learn much from each of them. Whether it’s leadership, resiliency, overcoming obstacles and developing the proper mindset and so much more.

My next guest is Boyd Renner. Years ago, Boyd went into a Navy Recruiting office in Colorado with a dream on his mind of becoming a NAVY SEAL. Instead of hearing words of encouragement, the recruiter laughed at him and told him he was too small, too weak and he would never become a SEAL. Thank God Boyd didn’t listen to that SHIT and instead used it as his fuel to become a NAVY SEAL, and then he went on to become a member of legendary SEAL TEAM 6 Community where he served with honor and distinction until his retirement. Highly respected and decorated, I had the honor meeting and speaking with Boyd at Conclave of Warriors in December.

He truly is an American patriot and hero, and you are going to love the show. We talk about his amazing journey as a SEAL, life lessons for everyone, his work with Endeavor Life Sciences and the next steps in his life.

More about Boyd.

CWO4 (RET) Boyd Renner grew up in a one-stoplight town in Colorado and joined the military in 1988. After graduating Navy SEAL Training, he served at SEAL Team Two for four years and served over 23 years at NAVAL SPECIAL WARFARE DEVELOPMENT GROUP (Seal team six)  He earned every rank from E-1 to E-9, and then he transitioned to Chief Warrant Officer in 2010. Boyd served over twenty-eight years in the Navy before retiring in November 2016. Since 9/11, he completed ten tours in Afghanistan, two tours in Iraq, as well as deployments to Albania, Sarajevo, and to the Arabian Peninsula. In 2014 Boyd graduated with honors from Saint Leo University with a degree in Business Admiration with a focus on technology management. Last month he completed his master’s in project management at Penn State University. Boyd is a recognized keynote speaker and is a co-founder of Endeavor Life Sciences, a company that has patented a way to safely add DNA to a new or existing tattoo and jewelry.  He is currently the Chief Operations Officer at FINAO Coastal Group in Virginia Beach Virginia, where he resides with this wife of 26 years, Wanda.

https://www.mindsetenterprise.net/students/teamtriad

In this Microcast Monday I wanted to start your day and week off in the right direction by giving you some inspirational and motivational words of wisdom that was the premise behind my book EVOLVE, and is the cornerstone of my personal coaching.  So EVOLVE is an acronym that stands for the following:

E - Elevate your thinking. It really starts with your thinking and mindset. Remember if you want big things to come into your life you need to start thinking big. Thinking small never accomplishes anything.

V - Visualization. Start visualizing what you want in your life. Want that promotion? Visualize yourself in that role. There is so much power in practicing this because you mind will start to push yourself, subconsciously, in the direction you want to go.

O - Others. Who are you surrounding yourself with? The people who you surround yourself with are key to your success. You are the average of the 5 people you associate with.

L - Love yourself. If you don't love yourself how do you expect to love anyone or anything else? You have much to be grateful for.

V - Victory is yours. You are victorious. You are here. You are talented and gifted and you can do anything.

E - Everyday, be your best. Remember to always put your best foot forward even on the bad days. The universe will take care of the rest.
