Business Conflict Training VideosOccasionally, people who appear to be calm and collected are anything but that. Some people bottle up anger and negative emotions until they explode…dangerously. This type of situation can lead to the type of workplace violence we see all too frequently in the news.  It is a startling fact, but workplace homicides now contribute to one out of five work-related deaths.  As unpleasant as the topic is, every employee must be prepared to deal with it.

Increased awareness is the best way to prevent workplace violence and that is done by making sure everyone in the office knows how to spot the warning signs and report any violent threats to management. Employees must also be taught constructive ways of dealing with workplace stress and tension.   Workplace Violence: The Calm Before the Storm is a powerful video that features an interview with an actual workplace violence victim.  The program includes depictions of the various types of violence that exist in the workplace and how to handle them.

Every organization is legally responsible for responding properly to threats and violent behavior; make sure your team is prepared.

Obviously you don’t want to encourage wildly impractical risk-taking or invite catastrophic failure.  So how can you encourage employees to take sensible risks, learn from their mistakes, and – as the saying goes – “fail forward” into success? (more…)
