Situational Awareness has played a huge part in my life.

For instance I've found much success working in security-related roles, although have been working within the Health (principally mental health)
sector for a number of decades now.
Kinda think the majority of situations essentially boil down to being the outcome of a flow-on of multiple occurrences...
What I mean by that is things tend not to just appear out of thin air - they grow from numerous smaller, seemingly inconsequential, actions/events
until they reach their 'critical mass' tipping point...
...if you can read the smaller events, the subtle oft' unseen/unnoticed nuances ahead of time you can often see the direction of the flow and thus
have a decent idea of what the potential outcome may be...so you can either circumvent it before it even gets close to tipping, or you can have some
form of prior warning before it does so you're more proactive rather than reactive in your responses...
Number of roles within the Mental Health sector have been working within Crisis Teams, training Staff around managing and mitigating crisis
situations, deescalating people who are in distress and generally keeping things as calm and collected as possible in order to aid people recover more
smoothly and not impede the 'therapeutic relationships' that facilitate a person's healing...
