Create the Right Policies & Plans to Maximize Your Residents’ and Staff’s Safety

The housing industry is a people business. While most people are good and pleasant, your job involves some level of risk when peoples’ tempers flare. Whether it’s a hotheaded resident with anger management issues having a bad day, an opportunistic attacker looking to get you alone in a vacant apartment, or an active shooter on your property, you need to be prepared.

Learn the policies and plans you need to have in place to ensure your team’s safety—as well as that of your residents—in this joint session by industry expert Jo Becker (with Anne Sadovsky). You will learn how the policies you put in place, the knowledge you have, and what you do can make all the difference. Becker and Sadovsky will explain what you need to know about personal life safety. They will show you how to stay calm in adverse situations; how the words you choose can create peace or chaos; how to have the right plans and policies in place; how to train and rehearse with your team; and how to utilize the services of local law enforcement agencies and private training companies.

When you work where people live, you need the equivalent of a degree in psychology. This session will show you how to maintain peace, have empathy when people are upset, use magic words that are calming, and stay calm using breath control and a positive mental attitude.

After attending this session, you will know the policies and plans you need to have in place to ensure your team’s safety—as well as that of your residents. You will know how to be a peacemaker and a calming factor in any kind of storm. Plus, you will know how to utilize the services of local law enforcement authorities and private safety training companies when required.
