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.

Brian joins the show this week to explain:
- The key to developing habits, behaviors, and mindsets of situational awareness

- How to recognize and respond to warning signs in the workplace
- How to ensure situational awareness resonates with all employees
