So excited to have my next guest back on the show. Retired Lt. Col Dave Grossman is back on the show. Lt. Col. Grossman is an internationally recognized scholar, author, soldier, and speaker who is one of the world’s foremost experts in the field of human aggression and the roots of violence and violent crime.  

 

Col. Grossman is a former West Point psychology professor, Professor of Military Science, and an Army Ranger who has combined his experiences to become the founder of a new field of scientific endeavor, which has been termed “killology.”  In this new field Col. Grossman has made revolutionary new contributions to our understanding of killing in war, the psychological costs of war, the root causes of the current "virus" of violent crime that is raging around the world, and the process of healing the victims of violence, in war and peace.  

Lt. Col. David Grossman is the author or co-author of five non-fiction and four fiction books.  He has co-authored a New York Times bestselling book with Glenn Beck.  His book On Killing has sold over a half million copies world-wide, has been translated into five languages, is on the US Marine Corps Commandant’s Required Reading List, and is required reading at the FBI academy and numerous other academies and colleges.

 

In this episode we talk about the current environment in law enforcement, tips and suggestions to make you stronger and more resilient, the power of love and so much more. A great episode.

What are you spending your energy on? Are you spending your energy on people and things that are not advancing you personally and professionally? For many years I did this. I had to learn to focus my energy on the positive, not the negative. We all have people in our life that are energy vampires. Those people SUCH the energy out of us. In turn we can become negative and cynical. This drains our energy. Remember you control what and who you spend your time and energy with.

Take your energy back today and turn your life around.

Go out and conquer your Monday and week.

I was recently contact by a fan of the show who suggested I talk about the consequences of overthinking. Thank you, Crystal McCoy, for the great suggestion. Crystal is a LEO in Colorado, and I thank her for her service.

So, why are you overthinking all the time? Do you realize that when you do this you are not living in the moment? You are also probably not being optimistic or positive when you are in this state of mind. Take your power back! Realize that you DON’T HAVE CONTROL OVER EVERYTHING. Also remember that the things we often worry about often never come to fruition and if they do, they are never as big as we made them in our minds.

Stop overthinking everything and take back your life.

I LOVE talking with former first responders who have gone on to KICK ASS in business and entrepreneurship. There are so many first responders that have this believe that they cannot do anything else but what they are doing. That is BS! You can do anything you want. My next guest, Dave Seymour, is testament to that. He is a former first responder that had a vision and went for it. He is an amazing mentor and motivator.

After 16 years as a firefighter and paramedic, Dave Seymour launched his career, rapidly becoming one of
the nation’s top real estate investors. Within his first few years, Dave had transacted millions of dollars of real estate and had become one of the nation’s leading experts in both residential and commercial transactions.

His unabridged passion for business and real estate put him on the radar of A&E television network as well as multiple news organizations like CBS, ABC, CNBC, FOX News, and CNN. New York Times reported that Dave Seymour’s series ‘Flipping Boston’ posted the highest ratings ever for the A&E network at the time of airing.

Dave has been sought after as a ‘tell it like it is’ mentor and motivator in the real estate world with a track record of unmatched success everywhere he reaches. Dave is well-known for doing business alongside investors of all experience levels. He has partnered with investors on their very first real estate deal as well as guided some of the largest investment firms in the nation through complex transactions. There is no one more committed to the success of other investors than Dave Seymour. Dave’s greatest joys come from being a husband and father. Both of which are his true motivation for all that he does. 

Such a great show with great advice to get you to GO AFTER YOUR DREAMS.

Those of us in law enforcement know how important good and effective interview and interrogation skills are to a case. Unfortunately, sometimes we fall flat with those skills and it can cost a case, individual and agency reputations and often relationships with the community.

My next guest is Brian Leslie. He is coercive interrogation expert and former Chief of Police. Brian is also the owner of Criminal Case Consultants Inc. According to Brian, identifying patterns of racial targeting, flawed investigations, excessive use of coercive interrogation techniques that force questionable confessions, coercive interview methods that use narrative integration to extract favorable witness statements, and faulty processes identifying suspects is unfortunately common in the law enforcement profession.

This pattern demonstrates how police culture going unchecked can create dangerous factions in police departments that ultimately affect the community. Police officers have a tough job to do, but this should never excuse destructive or criminal behavior for any reason. Having an understanding and relationship with a community allows officers to put a face on those they police, not a mask.

Many officers in police departments across America do take their oath seriously with pride and perform their sworn duties flawlessly. These officers work each day in their communities with no incidents and do make a difference. Most of these officers are seldomly in the media and maintain virtual anonymity but unfortunately wear a negative stain from those that fail their communities.

A great and informative interview. You can find Brian here:
