Is “EASY” important to you?
How is this prep program different? It’s easier. It breaks down categories of oral board responses into our proprietary, copyrighted, easy to remember acronyms. For example, nearly all situational questions from critical incidents to administrative situations have 8 key elements. Recite the elements in a way that is appropriate to the situational question and you will cover a great deal of what is being sought by your assessors. Add your knowledge of your department practices to the mix and you will really have a solid answer. Imagine how having an acronym to mentally reference at your oral board can reduce your stressful struggle for what to say.
Our Oral Boards Made Easy™ program has 3 options to help you simplify recall as you prepare for your promotion.
Feedback is a great way for you to be sure your answers are on the right track. Finest’s coaching blends instruction with practice and is customizable to your needs. Best yet, you don’t have to travel to us to benefit from this service…unless of course you want to.
“I am simply saying that your coaching for this promotion is the key to success for anyone involved. It is literally the talk of our department. The almost daily buzz around is ‘who got Reilly?’ and ‘Reilly is worth his weight in gold.’ You have become legend.”
-Oral Board Coaching Client
If you prefer to learn with others instead of one-to-one, Finest’s one-day Oral Board workshop is packed with ‘point earners’ and demonstrations personally taught by Asst. Chief (Ret.) Bill Reilly using the strategies that propelled him to the #1 position on each of his promotion lists.
“I really took a lot from this class, and felt like I could take on the world upon leaving! I can’t say enough positive about the class–it’s truly worth every dollar and hour of my time, not just for effective leadership, but also for improving life skills! Thank you so much for such a great opportunity! I haven’t stopped talking about it at work (only suggesting that it was the best training class I’ve taken, but would not give any answers up!!! Still the competition!). Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”
