Patron management requires the ability to continually assess behaviors throughout these dynamic interactions, making safe and effective communication choices, while managing our own emotions. This can be challenging, and this webinar will help underline how choices can inevitably determine outcomes.
This webinar covers how staff/patron interactions typically affect the level of risk more than the physical environment itself. When we are able to understand that the level of risk is determined by our approach and response to patron behaviors, it becomes clear that we need the skills, confidence and motivation to safely manage these dynamic encounters. Escalated patron behaviors, including threats, occur generally on a continuum rather than suddenly out of nowhere, for no reason.
Hugh Pelmore, founder of ARETE Safety and Protection, Inc., shares how the right skills and motivation can offer renewed objectivity and increased confidence, which can assist in reducing stress, increasing morale, improving safety, and enhancing customer service.
