FALL SEVEN, RISE EIGHT. A Kaizen Approach to Law Enforcement Training & Life
Law enforcement training, which acts as if the human brain is a pure stimulus/response organ, has left police officers with the knowledge of what to do in certain volatile and time compressed situations without the actual ability to do it!
The human brain is predictive. It is constantly predicting what is happening in your external world based on comparisons of what is happening inside of your body to external data coming in through your senses. These predictions are the brain's best guess about what is happening, what to do about it, and a probabilistic evaluation of the likelihood of success based on your relevant past experiences.
Fall Seven, Rise Eight shows how an individual officer, law enforcement trainers, and entire organizations can leverage this information to make training better for tense, uncertain, and time compressed situations. Understanding the brain mechanisms involved in these predictive processes as well as the mind-body communication networks are the keys to unlocking peak performance when performance matters most.
