combat-6cs-posterThe Combat element of the 6 Cs Framework includes situations when resistance or aggression results in physical engagement initiated by either party.Here the goal is everyone’s physical safety. Note: while uncomfortable to some, we use this term as a means to emphasize that physical engagement is a possibility in all jobs and must not be glossed over in conflict management training.

Applicable Tactics:

  • Be Alert & Decisive — Respond, Don’t React
  • Proxemics 10-5-2
  • When Words Alone Fail

In the following units, two Combat situations are presented. Please review each scenario, answer the associated question(s) and then study the Summary at the end.
