A Judo player poised and ready to tackle.

Verbal Judo

Price: $440 incl GST
Duration: 9am-1pm

It's no longer enough to be good at what you do. You have to look good, sound good or it's no good. Verbal Judo is a specialised program designed to improve professionalism,  decrease complaints and staff stress, and increase safety in your workplace. 

Verbal Judo is one of the most powerful, successful and internationally recognised communications training resources available.

Teach your frontline people the skills to confidently deal with difficult and aggressive situations. This program teaches a set of specific behaviours and tactics with which staff can redirect hostile or aggressive behaviour of others, and generate voluntary compliance.

It is aimed at customer service officers, librarians, development plan officers and health and building inspectors, i.e. anyone who could be in danger of physical and/or verbal abuse.

Who should attend?
All staff

There are five goals for teaching Verbal Judo to staff:

  1. Staff safety
  2. Enhanced professionalism
