Providing exceptional customer service can be challenging as we strive to meet the wants and needs of the individual being served. What do you do when you are challenged with a person who is upset, angry, and out of control? When faced with this behavior, primal instincts may activate which can lead to lashing out in an inappropriate manner, running from the conflict, or feeling helpless and unable to respond. This training can help you learn and master a more effective response through the use of Verbal De-escalation Strategies. Training participants will feel empowered in their abilities as they learn to utilize targeted communication and engagement techniques that are designed to defuse conflicts and reduce agitation of escalated persons in an effort to increase safety and generate positive outcomes.

Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand our emotional makeup, and to use that knowledge to manage our feelings and build relationships.

- Discuss strategies to come to an understanding, and be able to work within generations in a cooperative and productive way
A good sense of wellbeing encompasses all aspects of our lives, including our sense of purpose, our social well-being, our financial security, a positive sense of community and good physical and emotional health. And emotions play a strong role in each aspect. This training will focus on each aspect of well-being, and on practical steps we can all take to enrich our emotional well-being in each area.
Resilience is the ability to “adapt” and “bounce back” in times of stress and challenge.
