Prositions, Inc. announces the addition of a new manager training module to Getting Real About Workplace Violence. This expanded program now includes specific information and examples for managers and supervisors to recognize the early warning signs of potential workplace violence and threats. The entire Getting Real About Workplace Violence training program aligns with the American National Standard—the guidance published by ASIS International and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) for best practices addressing workplace violence prevention and response.

“A vital component of any leader’s mission is to develop and promote a safe and productive work environment,” stated Jim Sporleder, subject matter expert and narrator of Getting Real About Workplace Violence, “Helping managers and supervisors understand their critical role in preventing and surviving incidents of workplace violence may not only save lives but also help diffuse potential situations from escalating in the first place.”

The new module helps managers and supervisors:

  • Recognize and respond to early warning signs of potential violence
  • Become familiar with the concepts of threats and threatening behavior
  • Gain a deeper understanding of how stress relates to the progression to violence
  • Know the 3 critical questions to ask about behaviors of concern
  • Understand how domestic violence relates to workplace violence
  • Learn recommended managerial/supervisory responses and actions to take

“We now have this program available in a wide variety of formats so all organizations can provide this vital training quickly and effectively no matter where their employees are located,” stated Frank Russell, CEO of Prositions, Inc. “No other violence prevention and survival course, we know of, offers so many different delivery options.”

The new advanced manager training is included in the comprehensive course package that contains 26 minutes of high-quality video and reproducible training materials. The program is broken down into three modules: Awareness (10 minutes), Prevention & Response (8 minutes), and Manager’s Role (8 minutes).

Getting Real About Workplace Violence is available in classroom, eLearning, and micro-video formats. To request a free preview of the full program, please call (515) 864-7200 or visit:
