This program will offer participants an overview of the leader's role in preventing the threat of workplace violence.
While warning signs are important, having an understanding and familiarity of root causes and contributing factors can help the potential aggressors deescalate before they transition to being disgruntled and thoughts of retaliation. Remember, retaliation doesn't have to be a violent act; there are a host of behaviors available to the disgruntled employee that would never be considered as workplace violence.
Leaders, who understand what is workplace violence and how it is initiated will find themselves in a better position to apply multiple intervention strategies in resolving conflict, instilling trust and confidence in the leader and creating the impression that the Employer can provide for a safer and secure workplace.
Key to the importance of prevention is having a sound approach based on policies, strategies, procedures and a workplace violence prevention plan that supports the policy and other workplace security policies and procedures.
This program will provide an often overlooked leadership overview that will enhance the leader's role in combating the threat of workplace violence.
It will unveil insights into how incidents and situations when left unabated escalate and rise to workplace conflict and even physical violence.
The webinar will generate the "WHY" and discuss the "HOW". So, if your interest is on prevention this program will give clarity for those responsible for running any organizational entity.
Leaders not only have a legal responsibility to their Employers but a moral responsibility for rectifying conditions and contributing factors that help to resolve recognizable known hazards in providing for the safety and security of personnel within the operation.
This content applies the saying that "that the day of the incident is too late to begin developing your policies, plans and procedures, but, rather the day they get tested and evaluated."
