    Episode 1.14: Taking Ownership of Your CPD

    Episode 1.14: Taking Ownership of Your CPD

    Welcome to podcast Season 1 Episode 14, where I discuss the subject of Continuous Personal/Professional Development (45 mins). Taking ownership of your CPD and that of your teams is essential to being an eligible candidate for promotion to Sergeant, Inspector, or Chief Inspector. In fact, it is explicitly mentioned as part of the CVF behaviour, We Take Ownership. "What have you done to develop yourself or anyone else?" can be a killer question on promotion board. In this episode I answer such questions, plus provide guidance for planning your CPD, and much more.

    I hope you find it useful as food for thought when preparing for UK promotion across the Federated ranks, or as part of your general leadership CPD and help you become a better police leader in your force. See also my other blogs and videos on YouTube to help you on your promotion journey to success. Of course if you want complete and in-depth information on promotion, my unique Digital Toolkits and 4 hr Video Masterclass available from my website will stand you in good stead throughout the competitive promotion process in your force. Even better, use discount code RSGUIDES20 for 20% off anything at checkout!

    The aim of this series of Police Leadership & Promotion podcasts is to support, challenge and respectfully provoke your thinking around your decision to seek a formal police leadership role. I hope you enjoy the free content to aid your CPD, particularly when aspiring to the next rank... and maybe beyond as many of my clients have done.

    Episode 1.13: On the Day of Your Police Promotion Board

    Episode 1.13: On the Day of Your Police Promotion Board

    Welcome to podcast Season 1 Episode 13, where I discuss things you can do to prepare for success on the day (37 mins). Thinking of the end in mind is an important step to promotion to Sergeant, Inspector, or Chief Inspector. Effective preparation underpins successful promotion boards, interviews, presentations and/or assessments. Can you do the job? Will you do the job? Do you know the role? Are you answering the questions posed? Do you have a personal statement? I answer these questions, plus provide guidance for simple self-management techniques for the time leading up to your promotion board (travel, exercise, nutrition, mindset, etc.) and much more.

    Episode 1.12: The Greasy Pole of Promotion

    Episode 1.12: The Greasy Pole of Promotion

    Welcome to podcast Season 1 Episode 12, where I discuss the greasy pole of UK police promotion (28 mins). Making a commitment to yourself to prepare effectively for promotion to Sergeant, Inspector, or Chief Inspector is key to navigating this greasy pole. Whatever your force promotion process today, the depth and breadth of your preparation will determine whether or not you proceed. In this short episode I discuss some of the promotion processes, complaints, challenges, surprises and upsets you may face along the way.

    I hope you find it useful as food for thought when preparing for UK promotion across the Federated ranks, or as part of your general leadership CPD and help you become a better police leader in your force.

    Episode 1.11: It's Emotional (CVF: We Are Emotionally Aware)

    Episode 1.11: It's Emotional (CVF: We Are Emotionally Aware)

    Welcome to podcast Season 1 Episode 11, where I discuss the CVF competency, We Are Emotionally Aware (55 mins). Emotional intelligence (aka EQ) is an important subject for officers aspiring for promotion to Sergeant, Inspector, or Chief Inspector. This is an important behaviour for any police leader and as such is assessed in forces' promotion boards and assessment processes.

    I blog regularly on the importance of EQ in the context of UK police promotion. Click the word cloud tag on my blog site (link below) to see a number of posts on the subject, including within my recent two-parter on neurodiversity. I also dedicate the following blog on Police Hour to the competency:

    Welcome to podcast Season 1 Episode 10, where I discuss how you can use different thinking hats to prepare for your police promotion (28 mins). The De Bono 'Six Thinking Hats' are something I've blogged about before, they're great for approaching problem-solving and of course the problem of achieving promotion to Sergeant, Inspector, or Chief Inspector. It is also a useful technique in day-to-day management.
