Legitimacy in Policing: Turning the Lens Inwards

The link between procedural justice, police legitimacy and community trust encourages police to consider how they interact with the public so that people feel they have been dealt with fairly and with respect. Even when the outcome of their encounter with police is negative (e.g. speeding ticket), if the interaction with the officer was fair [...]

Stop Overcomplicating

I am guessing I am not alone in having a wonderful ability to overcomplicating most things. Whether it be relationships, money, career choices, life choice or just deciding what to wear in the morning you will ignore the path of least resistance and head straight for Stressville.

What Do You Know?

For 1000s of years traditional medicines worked on the premise that mind-emotions-health were all connected. That you personality, your nature, your mental health, your nutrition all created the symptoms of disease or health. Modern medicine thought it was at best fanciful, and at worst a scam. Now science has undertaken research that shows evidence of [...]

Conditional Confidence

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ARnmzmK4O0 Most people wait until external conditions provide them with confidence. Their confidence is conditional on external validation or circumstances.

Diversity in Police Leadership: How Real Are We Being?

“Our biggest fear is that we will show ourselves and we will be rejected”. Being authentic is a term used a lot to describe a good leader, suggesting that in order for people to trust and follow you it is essential that you be true to who you are. Makes sense and I am sure [...]

How To Connect With Your Team If You Are a Quiet Leader

The stereotypical charismatic leader who is open and connected with their team tends to mirror more of the characteristics of an extroverted leader.

Stop Learning, Start Living

So much information. So much to be learnt. We are in the age of information inspired by our innate curiosity and fueled by technological advances. The idea of continual learning is admired and encouraged, even at the organisational level we talk about ‘learning organisations’ as best practice in being agile and adaptive to change. But [...]

Quitting is Always an Option

I recently read a sign that said “Quitting is Never an Option”. I disagree. Quitting is always an option. And sometimes it is a damn good option. Success and achievement requires commitment and most definitely requires a sense of determination to keep striving towards your goals despite setbacks and roadblocks. Resilience is undoubtedly required if [...]

Why we sweat the small stuff

Imagine if you were able to eavesdrop on yourself and a group of friends or colleagues sharing a coffee – what would you hear? Probably a lot of talk about problems or complaints about people and circumstances followed by grunts of agreement and support from others who are then spurred on to share the horror [...]
