The safest way to win a gunfight is not to have one. And the easiest way to get home safely is to get out of bad situations. Now, I’m not talking about running away from a tough discussion with the boss, but what if something unsettling is starting to happen at the office?
Say a disgruntled former employee is making a big, loud, aggressive commotion in the entryway close to where you are. Do you know how to get out of the building without having to go by them? Or is there a place you can stay and barricade for your safety?
I’m in a glass office with my team, we’re on the second floor and are closest to the first-floor entry. I’ve got multiple ways to get out and multiple ways to get to a safer location. But, if the threat gets past our reception area and comes to the second floor without any warning, I may have to engage. We have multiple security measures in place so that hopefully won’t happen.
