Topic:  The Value of Dynamic and Realistic Training

Description: 

Accurate, effective communication between persons is absolutely critical for the success of any business. However, if a person does not realize how critical their own body language and tone of voice is in a situation, they may very well do or say something that may actually escalate a situation and make it worse. To increase the probability of successfully de-escalating a situation, a person needs to be aware of, and be in control of, their ACE... Appearance (body language), Communication (tone of voice, what is said) and Engagement (active reflective listening).
