Safety for Women in Workplace Environments [PODCAST]
The mind is the most powerful tool to protect oneself. This week’s guest for Impact Teams Radio show is Dennis E. Golden — the CEO of IM-SAFE, and he talks about personal safety for women in workplace environments.
He stresses that women are more prone to danger than men. This inspired him to focus his efforts on teaching and training women how to handle potentially dangerous situations.
As a certified personal security specialist, he uses his leadership training experience in equipping and empowering women with ways on how to properly prevent and react to workplace violence, corporate bullying, verbal abuse, travel safety and practically all types of dangerous situations.
He shares the importance of being counter intuitive where a woman must gain physical control of herself in any situation when safety is at risk. He cited a three step process to achieve it. According to Dennis, going silent at first is an important initial reaction to avert confrontation. Listening implies that you are paying attention and trying to understand to what others are saying. Lastly, making a feedback by restructuring in your own words what others are saying can be a brilliant way of making a point. Following this process can help women communicate effectively and disengage.
Dennis stresses the importance of empathy for it helps convey the message that you are trying to help solve the problem. Learn more about women’s safety as Tony Sherman interviews Dennis Golden in this episode of Impact Teams Radio show.
IM-SAFE® on WTIC Fox CT (5/9/13)
Dennis Golden is the CEO of IM-SAFE, which teaches women and children self defense. On May 9, 2013 he joined the morning extra along with WTIC Fox CT anchor Erika Arias as well as IM-SAFE VP & defense instructor Jennifer Lownik and Ava, a second grader, to demonstrate defense methods women and children can use to protect themselves. Watch the video:
- When we are talking with young children, we find that parents are great at arming children with safety tips such as fire safety, bike safety and wearing seat belts, however, they fall short when it comes to personal safety. A person’s first line of defense is education and knowing what they can do to stay safe.
- Use your voice – first to warn and next to request help.
- Keep your distance – we tell kids to imagine a large hula hoop around themselves and start warning with words if someone enters that space.
- Never go with someone/take anything or trust a suspicious situation.
- It’s okay to say no to adults – many kids don’t realize this is an option unless they are told.
- Every person (even kids) have the right to defend themselves if they are being attacked.
- Your personal safety is your responsibility for kids and adults alike.
