In this episode, Mike talks to personal security expert Jeff McKissack about violence inside and outside of the workplace and a few simple tools employers can share with employees to help them avoid violent crime and exploitation. They discuss the leading source of violence in the workplace, the importance of situational awareness, and what employers should be doing to mitigate some of the damage from dumb things an employee might do.
About our Guest:
Jeff McKissack is a noted authority in the area of violence and exploitation prevention. For years he worked with an investigative reporter for the national media interviewing criminals to determine 'how' they did what they did versus 'why.'
For over 30 years, Jeff has spoken to conferences and conventions across the country, provided onsite employee training as well as continuing education training, and offered numerous value-add events for key industries seeking to deepen their connection with their clients.
However, Jeff best sums up his mission and message by saying, "my goal is to help you spot trouble 'before' trouble spots you." In today's world, that is a message that should resonate with us all both personally and professionally.
