Sgt. Bobby Waidler of Denver Police Recognizes Value of Resilience Training

THE REAL FACES OF SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE

The TRACOM Group went on a client road tour this past year to collect the stories, successes and insights of our clients. The video stories collected include personal and professional anecdotes of how Social Intelligence programs — SOCIAL STYLE, Behavioral EQ, Resilience and Agility — have impacted the lives, careers and organizations of those who have applied the knowledge and skills gained through training. These stories were not scripted – each person who contributed shared their perspectives because they have experienced the benefits of improved Social Intelligence personally. Thank you to our clients and associates for sharing their successes!


In this video series, Sgt. Bobby Waidler, Resiliency Coordinator of the Denver Police Department and Dr. Casey Mulqueen of TRACOM discuss the importance of Resilience skills to help combat workplace stress and create healthy, productive police officers.

Studies show that life expectancy for a police officer upon retirement is only two to five years. So if we retire at 55 years old, and we’re a part of that statistic, we get to maybe 57, 60 years old—and that’s it. If we don’t develop a Resilient mindset, a mindset of self-care and a life of health, wellness and wellbeing, we’re very easily going to be one of those statistics. —Sgt. Bobby Waidler, Denver Police 

Resilience gives you the ability to put things in perspective with small problems and practice your Resilience on those small problems, develop your skills and when the big problems hit and times get tough, you’ll be prepared for it. You’ll be a Resilient person and be able to get through it. It makes you better at your job, a more effective problem solver, more creative and generally a more effective contributor. —Dr. Casey Mulqueen, TRACOM Group 

In our profession, or for any first responders, it is very difficult to go back to work every day and repeat some of the same types of calls, traumas or occupational stressors. If we don’t have a life built on Resiliency and don’t have a self-care program in place ahead of time to address it proactively, it can really harm us. —Sgt. Bobby Waidler, Denver Police
