Jamie Wolf, MPPA
CEO and Founder of ICT
Island Consulting & Training has been a leader in diversity training, ethical decision making, leadership and communication training since our founding.
“The answers to the real problems we face in restorative justice, public safety, education and social services are never found in training manuals. Therefore, it is always a mistake to think we can teach people what to think. The goal, instead, should be to provide them with the tools they need to think through a problem, develop an ethical solution, and act in the face of profound stress. This is what ICT does. This is who we are.” – Jamie Wolf, MPPA
What People are Saying about ICT:
[ICT] provides the most motivating and unique training I have seen in my thirty years of probation work! Jamie’s style and ability to tailor the training to your department makes ICT an agent for positive change in your organization.
… my department has been sending me to your trainings for over a year now, and I have found them extremely helpful not just in my professional life but in my personal life as well. It makes me happy that I work for a department that PAYS me to attend your trainings, which is something I can’t quite believe as I’m sure training of this caliber isn’t cheap. I just wanted to give you kudos for the great work you do. Thank you.
… As a seasoned, professional facilitator, Jamie presented and demonstrated the core values of integrity, courage, honesty & trustworthiness. Wolf demonstrated that ethics can be modeled, chosen, distinguished and applied. We learned that it is a decision available each day; so each day, we have an option and an opportunity to make a different choice. Additionally, Jamie verbalized and described some of the root causes of fear/addiction; and classified one of the leading, underlying causes that prevents ethics from being a chosen response … This class changed the quality of my life & work!
I cannot recommend Island Consulting more highly. Staff internalized the material, demonstrated their understanding of the information and were able to present the material to the class. The excitement generated by the instructor and our staff was remarkable. This is our second three day leadership seminar. The results were, again, outstanding.
Jamie, … facilitated a three day Executive Seminar for our department. The training was exceptional and a profound team-building experience. Because of the overwhelming success of the seminar, we extended the training to all of our leadership team, including first line supervisors in the field and institutions. The training included Leadership Competencies, Competent Communication, Ethics and Risk Management. The training received very positive reviews, so we invited Wolf back to provide Ethics and Risk Management training for all of our sworn and non-sworn staff.
I was immediately impressed by Jamie’s command knowledge and practice of the subject matter… Jamie not only clearly masters the material… it is also evident that Wolf applies these principles in the real world.
By far, the best training I have attended during my 22 year career in law enforcement.
Dear Jamie Wolf,
On behalf of the Justice In The Classroom team, I want to thank you for leading a workshop at the 2021 OUHSD Equity Conference. Your willingness to share your time and expertise in the area of Non Violent Communication was critical to the success of this event. Within 50 minutes, you virtually conveyed a piece of knowledge that we, with no doubt, know have a lasting impact on every staffer, educator, and student who attended.
As a student team, we worked closely with the OUHSD District officials who planned the event to ensure that the conference would be the best it could be, focusing especially on the quality of discussed topics and scope of the panels and workshops. Importantly, we wanted to recruit standout speakers that would not only share their experiences with diversity and equity, but also impart attendees with actionable takeaways to incorporate into their own equity journeys. We are so grateful to have worked closely with you and other outstanding speakers throughout the planning process, and we appreciate the time and effort you put into the creation of your workshop. We hope that the work of conference speakers inspires the District to continue providing space and opportunities for these important discussions to persist.
We wanted to share with you some positive responses to our end-of-conference survey regarding your workshop that we found especially touching and powerful.
“They were extremely passionate and professional! I would go to one of their workshops again.”
“This speaker was amazing and I believe our district should work more closely with them.”
“GREAT tools and handouts. Tons of resources and direction as to what to do next to learn more. Liked the easy tools for conversations.”
As you can see, your personal testimonies and illuminating teachings have had an intangible impact on the conference attendees. We hope that they use your words to better our school campuses, classrooms, and offices, and we thank you for your generosity in inciting the change through courageous conversations.
Thank you so much, again, for your participation in the 2021 OUHSD Equity Conference and for your support in our student-led charge to champion educational equity.
Jamie is a communication and professional relationship ninja! I learned a communication tool, a way of thinking about workplace relationships in every moment during the workshop. – Private Sector I.T. Executive
I came to [ICT’s three day Leadership Seminar] expecting the same old, same old. I was shocked to not only find myself loving the course but learning things about my work community that I had never even considered. My outlook towards each person has changed and the things I learned about myself made a powerful impact on my life, paths, and choices that are now, crystal clear. Now, I will make those choices based on conscious decisions. My eyes are wide open!
Jamie works with approximately 10,000 people per year.
Current Issues Facing Law Enforcement, Education and Social Services: The stressors in our current political and social environments require a new and very specific set of skills. Our Ethics & Risk Management and Implicit/Explicit Bias courses provide the latest research in neurobiological stress responses and most importantly, teaches participants ways to manage those responses in situations that present extreme risk such as circumstances that require use of force, involve a conflict of interest or vicarious liability.
“Jamie was selected as our keynote speaker at our annual education conference that focuses on foster, homeless, migrant, and parenting students. In addition to their keynote, Jamie presented several workshops at the conference. The message they delivered to an audience of about 250 people infused us with hope and renewed motivation to care for our students and ourselves. Participants expressed appreciation for the “Pit, Pivot, Dip” framework. We had an overwhelming number of requests to bring Jamie back as soon as possible for a longer workshop. We are eager to work with Jamie again, as are a number of other school districts that attended the conference.” – Ventura County School Administrator
