Steve recently facilitated a Street Smarts training for my company. Wow! I highly recommend this training. Steve engaged each employee, created a safe environment for learning, and provided readily available and memorable tools that everyone could immediately start using; from situational awareness to de-escalation to defense, or as Steve calls it, “Stun and Run” techniques. As a larger group, 23+, Steve had no problem including everyone in the hands on part of the training and ensuring that everyone was learning, practicing and understanding the importance of keeping safe. Steve even helped build confidence in those who might not be likely to have it! It’s not that you go looking for trouble, but when trouble comes looking for you…you’re ready! Thank you, Steve. We appreciate your time and expertise.CEO- Family Services Aides
