Often the best place to seek advice on how to do something is to ask someone who has done it, and done it successfully. In this episode, Aaron Dawson interviews Sean Stewart, who retired after nearly 30 years of service in Corrections. Sean started as a line officer and worked his way up through the ranks to retire as a Captain. Sean and Aaron discuss skills that may often get overlooked, soft skills, “mental chess” skills, skills that you often use, but seldom get training for. In this episode, the conversation focuses primarily on the role of the line officer and the challenges and decisions that go with that role.
