Recently I had the opportunity to speak with Lt. Brian Ellis, host of the Badge Cast 1 podcast. Badge Cast 1 is a production of the National Command and Staff College, an organization dedicated to providing leadership training to public safety professionals.
In this conversation, we talked about why connection matters in today’s public safety organizations and shared practical, science-backed advice for today’s public safety leaders. In high-stress fields like policing, connection is critical to managing stress in healthy ways, which leads to better decisions and performance.
If you or someone you know serves in a public safety organization, listen to the podcast and consider how to put these principles into practice.
