Positive Organizational Change

Bret’s leadership experiences are very evident as he taught numerous senior and executive level law enforcement officers at the FBI National Academy. He brought up tough and current ethical scenarios that were thought provoking and elicited deep debates. His professionalism and interaction was very welcomed by my classmates and it was a pleasure to be part of Bret’s leadership course. Bret’s leadership, personality, and ability to connect with people will enhance any organization that is committed to positive organizational changes. – Michael Ake, Assistant Police Chief

Exceptional Instructor

I had the pleasure of meeting SSA Bret Hood, while attending the FBI National Academy in January 2016. Bret was an exceptional instructor for the Contemporary Issues in Law Enforcement Course. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience. He engaged the class in thought provoking discussions; and he was able to effectively balance critical thinking with humor. Overall – great instructor and a great course. – Captain Sean Moriarty, Delaware State Police

A Mentor, Leader, and Instructor in the Public Safety Arena

It takes a special individual with ethics, civility, desire and dedication for a career in public safety. Even so, it is an extraordinary individual that becomes a mentor, leader, and instructor in the public safety arena. Michael “Bret” Hood has displayed all of these characteristics with a high degree of leadership. I had the opportunity to study under Mr. Hood in the FBINA 262 session where he serves as a professor on issues relating to contemporary policing and leadership. I have also had the opportunity to read and study many of Mr. Hoods works on management and leadership. It is with the highest degree of confidence that I recommend his writings, books, and articles on leadership and management for professional development. – Chief Martin Brock, North Carolina General Assembly Police Department

Truly Remarkable and Life Changing

It was a great opportunity to have been a student of Bret’s Basic Psychology of Leadership class while attending the 263 session of the FBI national Academy. Not only is Bret a cool, calm and easy going person, he is very knowledgeable in the field of leadership and has a natural ability to facilitate discussions. Even with a group of executive officers from law enforcement agencies from around the world, Bret was able to challenge us and open us up to explore new ideas and perspectives of leadership. My experience of having been a student of Bret’s class was truly remarkable and life changing. – Captain Thomas Taflinger, Honolulu Police Department

Bret is a Consummate Professional

Bret was my instructor for two courses at the FBI National Academy and I cannot say enough positive things about his quality of instruction and care for leadership development. Bret delivered in such a manner that police leaders from around the globe could relate to and identify with what he offered. Bret presented with a position of humility and was given a great degree of credibility by his law enforcement students. Bret is a consummate professional who is passionate about the law enforcement profession and I would highly recommend him for any position of leadership. – Commander Ron Bayne, Scottsdale Police Department

One of the best of all the classes I have taken in my 22-year career.

I had the pleasure of being a part of this training last week. Not one of the best leadership class but one of the best of all the classes I have taken in my 22-year career. Don’t pass on an opportunity to take this course. Your officers/supervisors will grow their leadership skills with this training. – Travis J. Cox Law, Enforcement Officer & Incident Management Instructor
