Reality Based Training with Ken Murray part 2!

In part 2 of our conversation we explore intervention points in Scenario-Based Training. Ken talks about recognizing unnatural pauses, goofy loops, and meltdowns as triggers for intervention. We explore effective questioning techniques during unnatural pauses to facilitate learning.

Additionally, addressing goofy loops involves asking questions in a way that prevents individuals from feeling foolish, emphasizing the importance of maintaining a resourceful state and fostering a “temple of awesome.”

Dealing with meltdowns, whether they are technical, physical, or psychological in nature, requires a thoughtful intervention strategy.

Understanding these triggers and implementing appropriate interventions is crucial for a successful training environment.

We then delve into Ken’s guiding training philosophies, emphasizing the value of being curious and the use of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) for Law Enforcement Officers (LEO) trainers.

Recognizing trainers as akin to hypnotists, it is crucial to be mindful of the impact and responsibility that comes with this role.

We also explore the creation of fear conditioning in training, highlighting the importance of trainers managing stress and emotions of partcipants during training.

Putting fun in fundamentals is needed for learning and is done from an ethical stance. This segment underscores the effectiveness and ethical nature of training when participants find enjoyment in the process.

We move on to the danger of using “big boy rules” and explore the psychology of safety leaks in training. Ken also talks about the significance of the safety colors system.

We also touch on not leaning only and too heavily on scientific principles alone. It stresses the need for a balanced approach to ensure the efficacy of training methodologies

We end with Ken describing the principle of Six-Hour News Training . We end with a mention of Ken’s recommended books, consolidating a comprehensive overview of the diverse topics discussed.
