MILO Cognitive Partnerships
MILO Cognitive partners with academic researchers, nonprofits, and other organizations to address complex challenges facing our industry. Their ideas, objectives, research, and products are helping us elevate training to unprecedented heights.
Chalogianis Consulting LLC in Chelsea, Michigan provides world-class security consulting and provides Subject Matter Expertise for MILO content conceptualization and development. With a team of expert practitioners in active threat, tactics, emergency planning, and training, the Chalogianis team are masters at how to maximize results and integrate MILO training from law enforcement to healthcare environments.
In addition to providing consultancy services for non-LE organizations to ensure their safety and security is adequate, they also develop training content and programs for law enforcement officers to help them integrate their focus on inclusion and support of marginalized populations into immersive scenario-based training.
MILO partners with Chalogianis because they understand and value the importance of truly connecting law enforcement with the communities they serve, building bonds and trust to enhance communication, respect, and ultimately to keep the communities safe.
The Electrophysiological Neuroscience Laboratory of Kent (ENLoK) is an interdisciplinary consortium of faculty from the Departments of Biology, Psychology, and Sociology. Dr. Will Kalkhoff from Sociology, the current Executive Director of the ENLoK, initiated this multidisciplinary collaborative program of research unified by a shared interest in neuroscience to study basic, translational, and clinical aspects of normative and disordered biobehavioral functioning. Their current research interests include mechanisms of cognitive and affective neural bases, and mechanisms of mental health, and social neuroscience.
With an emphasis on assessing dynamic neurological processes with electroencephalography (EEG), their research is especially useful for investigations of the time course of neural events in association with dynamically changing behavior and responses to stimuli.
The mission of our collaborative partnership is to elucidate biobehavioral markers via objective behavioral and electrophysiological (EEG) assessments to advance discovery and understanding of dynamic processes affecting and improving the safety and performance of the law enforcement and military customers we serve.
Founded in 2016 as a social purpose corporation, Maestro Games, SPC is dedicated to creating a world where the healing impact of the arts–specifically music–becomes a tactical tool for resiliency and empathy, and the first line of defense against first responder mental health challenges and potential for desensitization.
The Last Maestro™ platform enables participants to access and build upon their reservoir of emotional, mental, psychological, and spiritual resilience through brief, powerful experiences featuring specific music composed to elicit a healing emotional response. The need to engage the parasympathetic nervous system as a way to deal with a stressful event has been practiced for generations in a variety of settings, and the importance of creating and maintaining a strong sense of empathy throughout multiple stressful events is crucial for recovery. With The Last Maestro, an immersive 360-degree virtual reality world engages the participant’s autonomic and somatic nervous systems, while interactive gamification keeps the individual focused on the experience and reduces the chance that they will remain focused on their existing stress conditioners.
Creativity is the pathway through trauma and moral injury. Play is the language of creativity. Creativity is an expression of healing.
Throughout their 24-year history, NeuroLeadership Institute, NLI has had a singular focus – to make organizations more human through science.
A cognitive science consultancy and the pioneer in using neuroscience to drive change, NLI has united the world’s foremost neuroscientists, leadership researchers, and organizational practitioners with the purpose of transforming how we think, develop, and perform.
With operations worldwide, NLI provides unique brain-based, process-focused, and outcome-driven solutions to help individuals and organizations facilitate positive change, lead more effectively, and think differently.
NLI’s training solutions are based on Neuroscience
All NLI solutions are anchored in science. Applying what is known about the way people think, feel, and behave, NLI creates learning solutions that leverage those natural human tendencies. NLI applies a unique combination of insights from over 20 years of neuroscience research and a deep understanding of best practices from strategic work with over 200 organizations globally,
The majority of Fortune 100 companies choose NLI to help with their organizational challenges. MILO is proud to create opportunities for military and law enforcement agencies and those operating in crisis conditions to extend that expertise through integration with MILO training solutions.
ThinBlueOnline has been providing world-class training experiences since the 1980s. Along the way, they have patented new approaches and new technologies. TBO’s approach is to present training in a totally different way. They believe training needs to be consistent, frequent, and continuous, and result in permanent behavior change. TBO’s technology allows them to break concepts up into small bites that can be easily learned in just a few minutes of time.
By Partnering and utilizing TBO’s patented technology we’re able to deliver practice-based learning that builds new Neural Pathways for improved social and communication skills. Learners respond verbally through realistic individual scenarios, backed up with Role Models, Key Elements, and Insights to facilitate learning. TBO also develops cognitive modules that build skills in seeing more details in interactions and analyzing the situation from multiple perspectives for improved cognitive performance. Together these build muscle memory and stronger neural pathways to improve real-world performance.
Our collaborative mission is to Save Lives on Both Sides of the Badge!
The Simulated Hazardous Operational Tasks (SHOT) Laboratory at WSU in Spokane, WA conducts high-impact research in areas affecting the job performance of high-stress professionals, such as first responders in the law enforcement and healthcare fields.
Their groundbreaking research into implicit bias in policing has revolutionized police training for counter-bias mitigation by using decision-making simulation and was the framework for their immersive training program “CBTSim™” which is exclusively offered by MILO Training Solutions.
WSU’s researchers serve on the MILO Training Solutions ‘Cognitive Division Advisory Board’ where they continue to drive innovation with research- and evidence-based training programs.
