maximizing human potential through Life's Most Powerful Question.

W.I.N. Wednesday: What you up to Willis?

A number of W.I.N. Newsletter readers have asked about what I am reading these days, what upcoming seminars I am teaching as well as any training programs I would recommend.

What I am reading?

I just finished the audio version of Deep Work by Cal Newport and Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert and enjoyed both.  I recently finished reading Worth Dying for by Rorke Denver and Legacy by James Kerr and would highly recommend both. I am currently reading Newhall Shooting: A Tactical Analysis by Mike Wood and Natural Born Heroes by Christopher McDougall and am really enjoying both books. You can also check out my Recommended Reading list at www.winningmindtraining.com

What am I working on?

For the last 14 months I have been working on providing professional development training for trainers through a membership site The Excellence in Training Academy. Currently there are 53 interviews and 9 webinars posted in the Members Area of the site. There are also a number of great Member Benefits for those who have investing in joining the EIT Academy Community. Go to www.excellenceintrainingacademy.com and check out the Introductory Webinar and Featured Interview then sign up for a 30 day free trial.

Where and what am I teaching?

What is fast becoming my most in demand workshop is Dare to Be Great: The Leadership Challenge. I have three public Dare to Be Great leadership workshops scheduled in October:

October 5, Central Saanich, British Columbia

October 17, Calgary, Alberta

October 28, Spruce Grove, Alberta

I am also teaching an Excellence in Training seminar in Spruce Grove, AB on October 24.

What other training would I recommend?

WINx: Inspiring Excellence in Law Enforcement 2016. This one day dynamic TED style event was a huge success in 2015 and 2016 promises to be even better. Check out the 2015 talks and the 2016 lineup of speakers at www.experiencewinx.com. Use the code WIN2016 to get a discount when you register.  

Emotional Survival Training – October 26 to 28, 2016 in Las Vegas. This three day seminar is put on by the Dolan Consulting Group and features Kevin Gilmartin, Brian Nanavaty, and Harry Dolan. If I were not already committed to teaching all that week I would be in Vegas attending this seminar.

Dynamics of Officer / Citizen Encounters and Decision Making: The Foundation of Reasonable Force by Command Presence. Check out the Command Presence website www.commandpresence.net for dates and locations.

Take care.
