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:
Now I understand current police shootings: the science behind it and how to prevent it through training. This should be mandatory training. Charismatic, motivational instructor … most thought provoking class I’ve ever taken.
This is critical information for those seeking promotion and those doing the promoting. Our department discovered that we were lacking those who had skills in two critical competence areas while we were overloaded in one particular area. This explained why we were failing in recruitment and retention and pointed to a serious failure in terms of honoring diversity. Because of these findings, our management team has worked to change this dynamic beginning immediately. Thank you for this class!
Love the tools provided and also love the way Jamie paints pictures with words and provides meaningful examples.
Hands down, best instructor I’ve had in my career. As a Supervisor, I love hearing the custody staff talking about the class and what they learned. This is my third class with [Jamie] and they rocked it again. I am actively using the realistic, simple and effective tools I have learned and can’t wait until I can take another one of Wolf’s classes.
I was assigned to take [ICT’s three day] Leadership Seminar … it was without a doubt, the best training that I have attended in my 19 years with this department. Jamie Wolf had keen insight into the future of this department and challenged us to share in that vision. Not only did we have the challenge of looking at our careers, and our fit in the future here, but we had a team building experience that will enhance our ability to work together as a team. We all left the training with a renewed hope for the future of our department and the role that we play in it…
Jamie has deep, deep knowledge of how to build teams, communicate in ways that work for everyone and is a highly skilled facilitator. I gained many new tools and frameworks to help me improve my relationships at work and in my personal life. As a team, we up-leveled our communication skills and our commitment to our success. – Executive Manager
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!
During our recent restructure, staff told me that your leadership seminar gave them the courage and tools to step up and take a leadership role. The seminar profoundly changed our workplace.
… 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.
During the past six months, I have worked closely with Jamie, who provided extensive training for our department. Wolf provided team-building training for the management team and ethics training to all line staff. Jamie also provided technical assistance in the area of arming and was especially helpful to me in creating new policies and procedures for the department. Jamie Wolf is very dedicated to the field of probation and has an outstanding work ethic.
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
