Troublesome Terms: Top 10 Strategies for Safe Terminations

Presented by Tim Keck, SafeHaven Security Group, Fayetteville, AR

Whether you are the employer or the employee—no one relishes the termination process. As the boss, you not only bear the responsibility of delivering unwelcome news but also must uphold office morale. Fortunately, a more effective recruitment process, incorporating a well-crafted job posting, can significantly reduce the likelihood of encountering a hostile termination.

Join us in this workshop to gain valuable insights and practical strategies to safeguard your organization from termination risks posed by hostile employees. Together, we will explore proactive approaches that promote a positive work environment and foster healthy employee-employer relationships.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Identify a dozen warning signs of a situation that is on a path to violence. 
  2. Learn the one mistake you must avoid that could open you and your company up to massive liability.
  3. Strategize 10 steps to ensure terms go as planned.
  4. Understand the only right way to respond to a threat.

The workforce is more diverse than ever, yet the way we interact with each other doesn’t always reflect these ethnic and cultural differences. Navigating a world where we must constantly engage emotions, opinions and ideas that we don’t always understand or agree with doesn’t have to be impossible. In fact it can be greatly beneficial to team productivity, innovation, creativity and overall company success. The result of this breakout will be teams that know how to create, build and maintain a culture of inclusion through everyday empathy actions. 

Attend this session to learn more about (1)  identifying and examining  the potential biases that are impacting their ability to be effective communicators, (2) giving feedback from a place of empowerment and receiving feedback from a place of support, (3) differentiating between sympathy and empathy, and (4) effectively using key empathy behaviors to take empathy from an idea to an action that attendees can integrate seamlessly into their day
