When it comes to executive protection, everyone thinks they are an expert. From clients to those that they are with, we are constantly bombarded with requests that, if taken, would undermine our ability to protect our clients effectively. When it comes to executive protection, think of your expert like you would a brain surgeon.
They Know How to Protect the Client. Trust Them
When it comes to your health, you would never tell a brain surgeon how to operate on you. The same should be true when it comes to your safety. Most client representatives have no training in protection, but still, try to tell us where to go and what to do. Unfortunately, that compromises their safety and could put them in a similar situation they’d be in if we weren’t there altogether. Make sure always to respect your protection expert’s authority and knowledge. They are there to keep you safe, much like how your brain surgeon is there to keep you alive. You must develop trust in allowing them to freely operate and make the best decisions for the client’s protection.
