Would you run a marathon without training? 3

Steve Cooper is Police Hour's in-house police promotion coach. He supports police officers aspiring to Sergeant and Inspector in achieving their promotion goal.

You wouldn’t run a 26-mile foot race without putting in some hard yards of training. It’s the same when you run for promotion.

Running a marathon and running for promotion. At first glance, they might not seem similar. But the two activities have one key thing in common. The need to prepare.

Too many officers applying for Sergeant and Inspector roles are guilty of being not quite savvy enough about what they face. Many are happy to fly by the seat of their pants. After all, it’s what cops do every day of their working lives, so why not at interview?


Seven, or even five, years ago, that approach might have been enough. But not today. In a world of assessment tests, presentation exercises and interview boards, you need to be fully match-fit. You need to have started your training long before the race.

Left to your own devices, you’ll probably opt for that seat-of-the-pants approach. So
how much better would it be to be coached through the process by an expert? That’s
me, Steve Cooper, formerly a detective Inspector and now a qualified coach.


At Rank Success, I’ve deconstructed the process and put it back together in a meaningful way. So you don’t have to. For a very moderate investment, you can download my digital guides, attend my workshops or be individually coached to promotion. Or you can show up on the day and hope for the best. It’s your call.
