According to the Apter's Reversal Theory of motivation and emotions, we are all changeable and adaptable.
The same situation can seem motivating or stressful depending on our state of mind.
We can choose to undergo this changing environment or to adapt to it by making it motivating thanks to the strength of our state of mind.
Law enforcement performance measurement systems have historically focused on organizational benchmarks versus performance at the employee level. Monitoring agency or organization outcomes are helpful, but by accurately differentiating performance between employees, law enforcement agencies can improve morale, attract qualified talent, manage burnout, improve resilience, develop leadership and maximize retention.
Policing makes great emotional demands on officers as they deal with people in crisis—while maintaining order, providing service and controlling crime. Law enforcement agencies are beginning to recognize the value of emotional intelligence in their officers. This is a significant character trait related to self-awareness of one’s own internal emotions as well those in other people. Understanding of emotional and social intelligence competencies can contribute to a helpful, appropriate, and realistic understanding of performance.
