Verbal Judo

Verbal Judo training is ideal for any front line person who may be faced with conflict, whether verbal of possible physical. Core training is based on the work of the late Dr. George Thompson who stated that "Effective conflict management is an acquired skill - it's not something that comes naturally." 

Verbal Judo provides the skills necessary to separate yourself from the situation, freeing you to become what you need to become in order to respond effectively to any verbal challenge.


Essentially, getting beyond your anger, fear or frustration in order to adopt a calm, concerned and listening persona.  Once calm, Verbal Judo provides the skills proven to calm others.  While you cannot force someone to make a better choice, with the proper skill, we can create an environment whereby they can make a better choice of Force application if required. Ideal for all professionals.
