Applied Conflict Management Training

At Applied we deliver conflict management training to all sectors of industry who may face conflict, threats, or who are simply on the front line dealing with the public on a day to day basis.

Amongst others, we deliver this training to probably the most demanding industry in the country - Door Supervisors.

These are the people who keep the town centres safe for the decent, law abiding people to go out and enjoy themselves.

They are the front line who face up to and deal with violence and aggression as part of their weekly work.

It is because of the nature of the work they do, that what we teach them HAS to work.

We aren't just talking about the physical side of things, as that plays a minor role.

The most important part of any conflict management training is the ability to communicate effectively, in order to diffuse any situation BEFORE it escalates into a physical confrontation.

That said, we must also prepare for the worst case scenario. Should the aggressor be under certain influences which render him impervious to reason and this leads to an escalation to a physical threat, we must be prepared to deal with this for the sake of ourselves, the aggressor and the public at large (Including other members of staff).

Below is a sample of slides from our conflict management training course.

These are taken from the first day of a three day course and cover all aspects of avoiding ANY escalation to a potentially dangerous situation.

Active listening, with the emphasis on "ACTIVE" provides the cornerstone for the conflict management training.

The words we speak make up only 7% of the actual communication.

The way we manage our customers expectations using non verbal communication becomes vitally important

Attitudes and behaviours are key to avoiding potentially volatile situations.

Using the 4 A's approach we can manage our own emotions.

We must however be able to recognise when a customer has moved over from a "Rational" to an "Irrational" state and the situation is about to escalate.

Putting theory into practice

Below we see some examples of our interactive conflict management training course being put into practice on some attendee's from a recent Door Supervisor's course.

Here we see one of the delegates demonstrating the "Open palms" approach, signalling non aggression and "Active listening" skills.

After being violently prodded, the delegate de - escalates the situation.

If a member of staff is clearly inflaming the situation, the best option is a change of personnel.

Here an attacker grabs and tries to punch. Paul Swift has to use physical skills to avoid being injured and control the situation.

The aggressor is controlled by Paul and taken to a place of safety.

Trevor Roberts demonstrates here a release from a grab by an irate customer.

A violent aggressor is controlled by three members of staff to ensure the safety of all involved.

This approach ensures the minimum force necessary is used to minimise any risk of injury and diffuse the situation in a controlled manner.
