60-minute webinar and 30-minute Q&A


Poor communication is often an overlooked contributor to accidents in field settings. For this reason, it's critical for field leaders to focus on group environment with clear expectations, good rapport between leaders and participants, tools for managing conflict, and open lines of communication. When done successfully, safe learning/working environments not only reduce the likelihood of accidents, but also often lead ot more enjoyable group experiences. Join us for a discussion of best practices.
