Recently, I had the privilege of talking with Joe Saunders from the Managing Violence podcast and wanted to share it with readers from The CP Journal.
It was great to join a long list of leaders from the security industry, including people like Tony Blauer, James Hamilton from Gavin De Becker and Associates, and Aaron Mauldin, so if you you haven’t had the chance to take a look at Joe’s show, I certainly recommend it and you can find all of the episodes here.
I enjoyed the conversation and if you’d like to listen to what Joe and I discussed, you can find find it on Spotify and YouTube.
In the four years since we first released the online version of our Tactical Analysis course, our students have continuously told us that they want more opportunities to practice reading behavior. After years of experimenting with different options and months of testing and tweaking, we’re very excited to announce the opening of The CP Journal’s Practice Section within our online Academy.
What It Is:
The Practice Section is an area where members can access exercises to practice reading behavior and develop their abilities to establish baselines and recognize anomalies. Each exercise can be completed in less than 10 minutes, making it easier than ever to practice assessing the four pillars of behavior and our baselining methods.
Why We Built It:
It would be easy to say that we built the Practice Section because our students and customers have been asking for it, but that would only be a part of our reasoning. We built it because, in order for our nation’s protectors (and those looking to ensure their own safety) to become true masters of behavioral analysis, they need more than one book or one training course. Putting our lessons into practice is a key component of pursuing mastery and becoming elite. Creating a training area where protectors can do this from the safety of their home or office and practice for as long or as short a time as they need has been a longtime goal of ours that we’re thrilled to bring to fruition.
Who It Is For:
In designing the Practice Section, we had a specific type of person in mind. The exercises are for people who want to go beyond what we teach in our courses, what they read in Left of Bang: How the Marine Corp’s Combat Hunter Program Can Save Your Life, or what they learn on our blog. It is for the people who want to drill and develop “soft skills” in the same way they practice other more tangible parts of their profession. It is for the people who want to put in the work to become an elite observer and improve their decision-making.
How You Can Join:
Subscriptions for the Practice Section start at $9.99 per month or $99 per year.
