Pre-Conference Workshop

Understanding, Preventing and Responding to Violence and Conflict in the Workplace

Wednesday, September 20, 2023, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Speakers: Ray McGury and Mike Zegadlo

In this pre-conference workshop trainers from RJM Strategy Group will present a comprehensive examination of violence and conflict in the workplace including prevention, mitigation, and management strategies. Participants will examine how human behavior impacts conflict management and confrontation outcomes, learn about the pathway to violence that active shooters travel, practice hands-on tactics for surviving an active threat incident and review common sense methods to improve physical and technological security at your organization.

Highlights of the seminar include:

  • Techniques for managing natural physiological stress responses that inhibit humans’ ability to communicate and problem solve during stressful confrontations will be explained in addition to tools for managing difficult conversations, conflicts and confrontations with clients and co-workers.
  • Participants will learn to recognize risk factors and observable behaviors of individuals who may be on the “pathway to violence” and be given tools and recommendations for early interventions.
  • Tactics for surviving an active threat incident using the “run, hide, fight” model will be practiced by participants following a discussion of why these tactics are effective and embraced nationally, using historical examples.
  • Physical and cyber-security hardening practices will be introduced to help facility managers recognize and bolster weaknesses to increase organizational safety and minimize threat profile.

Multiple team members from each practice are encouraged to attend.

6 Continuing Education hours are available.

Seating is limited.
