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:
We are very pleased with the outcomes of this developmental training and it is a pleasure to hear staff talking about, and more importantly, practicing what they learned. I highly recommend Island Consulting & Training and the evaluations from my staff support this endorsement of superior training. Jamie Wolf customized our training to meet our specific needs, and I am aware that they have customized training for a number of Probation Departments. Wolf is a talented instructor, facilitator, and trainer and we are looking forward to having them work with us on other training ventures.
… 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 love listening to Jamie speak. Jamie provides real life scenarios from direct experience in law enforcement that cause us to think. Jamie’s stories and wisdom are something that make their classes enjoyable. I really enjoyed learning about implicit bias.
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
Island Consulting & Training [delivered] an [Ethical Decision Making & Risk Management] class for 95 of our … Department’s supervisors and managers. As a Training Manager, I expect the best training for our staff and Jamie Wolf exceeded my standards.
Love the tools provided and also love the way Jamie paints pictures with words and provides meaningful examples.
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!
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.
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
Jamie’s positive spirit, enthusiasm, and passion for involving staff at every level and throughout the process promoted a sense of ownership in those who had begun to grow disheartened under new pressures. With renewed vigor, increasingly more staff invested their energy under Wolf’s leadership and coaching style.
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
