What is the Mandt System?

The Mandt System approach starts with the idea of supporting people, not just their behaviours.™ When you do this, you’re well on your way to creating a culture that provides for the emotional, psychological, and physical safety of everyone involved. It is based on treating everyone with dignity and respect. Our Mandt training program gives you the tools to affirm your feelings and choose your behaviours™ so that you can keep yourself and others safe during challenging interactions.

As an organization leader, we know that one of your top priorities is to create a safe work environment. To do this, you need to know how to handle difficult situations when they happen. The challenge is we don’t always have the tools we need to effectively and safely respond. This program teaches prevention and de-escalation concepts to help people safely manage behaviour so that everyone can be safe in their environment. Our goal is to be your active partner by providing the tools you need to create a healthier and safer workplace.
