"Shots Fired!"...the last thing you'd expect to hear in a workplace or university. Unfortunately, this contemporary, violent event has become a reality in our workplaces and schools. Today, anyone can become a victim of workplace violence, but, despite common belief, injury or death does not have to be the inevitable outcome. The key to survival is a proper mindset and related awareness and tools enabling you to act with purpose.... to take control... You CAN survive!
