Academic Designations

But his obsession with Evangelistic Crusades would not allow him to concentrate on “secular subjects”. To get the best of both the academic and spiritual worlds, Dr. McAllister transferred to the Jamaica Theological Seminary, graduating four years later in 1976 with a Bachelors degree majoring in Theology, and with a minor in Psychology (B.Th.) He also secured a Diploma in Guidance Management in the same year, proceeding to work as Guidance Counsellor with the Ministry of Education..

He subsequently earned two non-resident degrees from WIU in England. The first is his Masters in Theocentric Counselling (M.A.) supported by his published thesis, “You’ve Got All It Takes To Succeed”. The second is his Doctorate in Human Relations with a major in Consumer/Provider Relations (Ph.D.) which is supported by his published thesis, “Winning the War? Consumer Survival in a Free Market Economy.”

Dr. McAllister has also earned designations in the arenas of Finance, Insurance and Public Speaking. These are the CLU in Insurance, the Ch.F.C. in finance, and the DTM in public speaking.           Click to go to top of page

Sales Trainer/Coach

Dr. McAllister has conducted numerous Sales Training Seminars for companies selling products ranging from household chemicals to Insurance. His flagship course is “Seven Secrets of Successful Selling”, with its wide range of application to sales in almost any industry. His intro to Seven Secrets of Successful Selling is included in the Doc P Videos gallery.

Because much of Sales training involve behaviour modification, and because Dr. McAllister places so much emphasis on the human psychology component in the sales process, he strongly recommends that the minimum duration of an effective Seminar should be one full day.

Dr. McAllister’s skills as a motivator are brought to play in ever Sales Seminar he conducts. Not only must a good Salesperson be motivated, but he or she must have the ability to motivate a properly qualified prospect. The bottom-line is closing the sale. But Doctor McAllister places even greater emphasis on Opening the Sale. His Seven Secrets of Successful Selling is a must for companies that wish to optimize the productivity of their Sales Teams.

Jamaica Police Force

In addition to the books already mentioned, Dr. McAllister authored the Policeman’s pocket protector manual  – Unshackled! This represents the last major contribution made by Dr. McAllister to the Jamaica Constabulary Force and its Auxiliaries during his twenty-two-year active association with the organization. First associating as a Home Guard, aka, Special District Constable, and then as a frequent guest lecturer in Psychology and Police Public Relations, Dr. McAllister earned the name “Best Friend and Defender of the Police” given to him by Acting Prime Minister Hon. Seymour Mullings.

As in many other parts of the world, the Jamaica Police Force was created as a tool to be used by the ruling class to keep the masses in their place. In order to maintain it control over the Police Force, its organizational structure I so skewed as to minimize the possibility of a successful rebellion or revolt from within the ranks at any level. In order to achieve this, members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force are forbidden from joining independent public Unions. Instead, their representation is done through a Police Federation which is comprised of Policemen elected from the junior ranks of Constable to Inspector.

Dr. McAllister’s Unshackled! was designed to educate Policemen concerning their rights under the law, as well as to equip them with strategies to best represent themselves to their Government employers, within the provisions of the Police Federation Act, while maintaining the most productive relationships with their power-base, the people. Dr. McAllister’s Unshackled! derived much of its authority from two facts that underly his expertise in police-related matters.

Insurance Consultant: First, in 1984, at a time when the beneficiaries of Policemen who died in the line of duty were waiting for an average of two years before receiving financial relief from the Government, Dr. McAllister designed and implemented the widely-popular Police Group Insurance policy. Immediately, in 1985, the beneficiaries of the first Policeman to die in the line of duty received non-Government financial relief even before the day of the funeral. They could then afford to wait on the Government for their payments.  Thirty-eight years later, Dr. McAllister’s Police Group Insurance policy is still in force, serving the needs of Policemen and their families in Jamaica.

Salary Negotiator:  Second, by 1992, Dr. McAllister’s name was among the most revered in the Jamaica Police Force and its Auxiliaries. So, it was no surprise that when the Police Federation became frustrated with the Government’s foot-dragging on their salary and welfare benefits claims, the leadership of the Federation under its Chairman Inspector A. J. Forbes turned to Dr. McAllister for help. And the rest is history. Under Dr. McAllister’s leadership, a blistering, relentless three-month Public education campaign was waged over the nation’s airwaves and in its print media that awakened the conscience of the nation to the socio-economic plight of its Policemen. The clear verdict was that Policemen could not afford to live a decent second-class life on their salary and fringe benefits alone.

Under mounting pressure from the nation, the Government conceded to facilitate an unprecedented Arbitration to hear and rule on the Policemen’s claims. The Police Federation appointed Dr. McAllister to represent it on the 3-man Arbitration panel… and the rest is history. That year the Jamaica Police Federation won an unprecedented overall 300% increase in benefits… a feat never to be repeated.          Click to go to top of page
