As stress increases across our society, anger and conflict have increased as well. For many, physical violence is becoming an ever more acceptable answer to problems, even in the workplace. Very few people have had an opportunity to learn how to successfully navigate these stormy seas. Until now.

Drawing on expertise from fields as diverse as psychology, crisis management, mental health, law enforcement, and more, the GET…LIVE curriculum is comprehensive in its approach to safety in interpersonal conflict. Although there is a strong emphasis on verbal skills, other factors include body language, proxemics, and proper mindset. There is even an optional segment near the end of the session for those who wish to learn some basic physical skills for self-protection.

 Attendees report feeling inspired and empowered to handle almost any situation both at work and in life.

This is information that might save your career or your life.

Learning Objectives:

1. Learn where most people make their biggest mistake and how to avoid it.

2. Discover the five keys to listening and how to apply them.

3. Determine your level of liability and that of your company in dealing with conflict.
