Effective Communication/Verbal Judo

Effective communication is key to keeping a situation from spiraling out of control. By addressing a situation with a calm manner and proper communication you can avoid unwanted outcomes.

Take a class with your team (contact 514 398 4562) or on your own (register) to ensure that you know how to approach different situations, threats, and emergencies that you may encounter and allow you to be prepared in any event.
