Situational awareness is the ability to analyze, identify, and take action to prevent bad things from happening. While commonly associated with active shooter scenarios, situational awareness empowers employees to recognize and respond to all kinds of threats that organizations face today — from cyber-attacks to the warning signs of suicide. It’s a skill that simultaneously pays dividends in organizational safety and develops exceptional interpersonal skills in your employees.
As Founder and President of Paratus Group, Retired Colonel Brian Searcy coaches organizations of all sizes and industries through a program uniquely crafted to improve safety and security through situational awareness.
Brian joins the show this week to explain:
- The key to developing habits, behaviors, and mindsets of situational awareness
- The critical skills needed to become situationally aware
- How to recognize and respond to warning signs in the workplace
- How to ensure situational awareness resonates with all employees
