Staff safety has become an increasing concern for employees,particularly when dealing face to face with the general public.
To this end many companies have instituted self defence technique training for staff.  This is a positive step, but it deals only with part of the problem.
As well as being trained in physical technique, it is also important that staff have tools for conflict resolution. This encompasses awareness, knowledge of body language and good communication skills. The importance of fear control and the ability to remain calm under pressure should also not be undervalued.
Skill development in these areas has repercussions beyond the physical. Team building, interpersonal skills and, flexibility in the face of difficulties are just some attributes that our training can develop in your staff – attributes making them a more valued and productive member of your team.
