The 2016 TAIS CrisisCoach Workshop provides you and your team the opportunity to participate in three targeted crisis exercises to experience critical decisions, intelligence monitoring, communications, behavioral management and responses. Firestorm President, Jim Satterfield, will be moderating the event.
Benchmark your plan to standards and best practices.
Interactive Crisis Management Test Exercise – How does a crisis escalate?
Attendees will participate in an interactive crisis exercise, analyze events, make decisions and prepare messages. In a crisis, you must identify the key decision criteria; develop messages; establish interactive communications channels; monitor information, response and engagement; provide support and training; and facilitate the decision process to rebuild trust. The consequences will last for years to come. What you decide, say, and do will have direct impacts on to your school’s students, reputation, brand, finances, trust, strategic goals, and even ability to operate.
Intelligence Network Exercise – How do you know what you don’t know?
Social media is not random, it is targeted. There are threats and risks you can identify before they become crises, if you listen and look. People know things – and when they know, they talk. Today, people talk on social media. Initial threats or risk behaviors are frequently shared or observed on social media. What happens tomorrow is on social media today.
Behavioral Risk Threat Assessment Exercise – How do you recognize and address behaviors of concern?
This session will cover the behaviors of concern assessment process and teams required to ensure immediate, systematic response to students at risk. Schools are proving that prevention and intervention strategies help keep our young people safe. Becoming more self-aware and recognizing warning signs and triggers are necessary for prevention. It is critical to identify those students who need help, and then get them the help they need.
Benchmark Your Plan Preparedness / Personal Plan Review Session – How do we know if we are ready?
BRING YOUR PLAN – THE GROUP WILL REVIEW & ANALYZE STRENGTHS AND GAPS. Verify that your program meets best practices and standards. Discover the gaps in your plans before issues occur. The analysis results in the identification of specific enhancements for: leadership requirements, decision processes, command and control operations, emergency response, procedures, streamlined communication techniques and facility/equipment upgrades. Preparedness is a continuous improvement process. You will learn a high-level DIY Benchmark process. Your school community looks to your school leadership to understand what needs to be done to assure that your students are safe. Unless your plans are aligned to best practices, actionable, documented, trained and tested, your program will fail.
