Training in our structured methodology reduces complaints, liability and injuries, while improving performance, morale and overall safety — with clients (customers, perpetrators, patients, students, inmates, coaches, parents, etc.), among team members and in people’s personal lives.

While Vistelar’s focus in on preventing conflict and managing its negative consequences at the point of impact — the short period of time when a tense situation can escalate to emotional and/or physical violence — our training affects a wide range of situations, from the outcome of brief encounters to the quality of long term relationships.

Vistelar’s instructor-led programs are delivered in-person and online using Emotionally Safe Performance-Driven Instruction™. This proprietary “fire drill versus fire talk” training system improves retention and ensures students can actually perform the learned skills in their daily lives.

Speaking engagements, online courses and published books provide additional opportunities to learn Vistelar’s proven non-escalation, de-escalation and defense strategies and tactics.

Since the early 1980s our consultants have trained hundreds of thousands throughout the world within the 14 market sectors to the left. Please click on a market sector of interest to learn more.
