Verbal Defense & Influence is the only training program that teaches people how to respond in an effective manner during stressful interactions – instead of impulsively reacting. In addition, even in the absence of stress, our training improves an individual’s interpersonal and persuasion skills, self-confidence in dealing with others and ability to maintain emotional and physical safety.
The core principles of Verbal Defense & Influence, which have been taught for over 30 years, are grounded in both academic research and real-world application. The structured framework in which these principles have been synthesized makes them simple to learn, remember and apply.
Verbal Defense & Influence uses Emotionally-Safe Performance Driven Instruction™, a unique approach to training that emphasizes student interaction, real-world simulations, skill practice, memorable stories and physical activity. This approach improves retention of the taught material and, more importantly, enhances the student’s ability to actually perform the learned skills in their work and personal lives.
In our Practitioner and Instructor programs, our proprietary online technology enables the capture and sharing of video/audio role-play sessions, resulting in more efficient and effective learning.
