Testimonials

    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 seminar provided real tools that I can take back and implement immediately to create change. The information about old brain/new brain (neurobiological responses) to fear was amazing and I can take that back to make officers and the public safer. It gives me hope with all that is happening with police shootings. We can fix this and now, I know how.

    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 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

    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

    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.

    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.

    Understanding the learning process beginning with unconscious incompetence was extremely useful to me. This helps me to better evaluate and understand the training needs of different staff. Great tool.
