Solution-Oriented Situation Management                                              

This ground-breaking program introduces participants to effective situation management that supports the highest levels of professionalism and safety when it comes to client service interactions.  Solution Oriented Situation Management begins with effective communication approaches that can serve to achieve immediate results through proper goal orientation and mental framing. We start with the premise that it is better to achieve consensus, compliance, or compromise prior to requiring advanced efforts to resolve a conflict generated by less than ideal  engagement initially.    The course progresses through the interaction continuum presenting strategies for de-escalation and non-violent interventions if faced with conflict, agitation, aggression or even violence.  

This program is ideal for any employment sector that deals with front line client service delivery. From retail, health care, to security or law enforcement, if your staff works regularly with the general public, effective client interactions will lead to positive safety outcomes, improved employee confidence and client satisfaction. 

For advanced security and law enforcement:
