Managing Difficult Situations by Managing Yourself

This workshop is for supervisors and managers, classroom trainers, project managers, and anyone interested in learning skills and perspectives for strengthening relationships with coworkers, supervisors, and direct reports. If managing people has become frustrating, if your relationships with coworkers have deteriorated to the point of avoidance, or if you find yourself wishing, "If only he/she would change, life would be so great!" then come view life from a more powerful perspective. Using Eastern and Western methods, you will practice skills such as centering, power, appreciation, and co-creation, and make connections to workplace applications such as conflict, relationship management, training, and teamwork. Instead of reacting to circumstances, you will learn to breathe, center, evaluate, and make choices that direct your energy effortlessly toward your vision.

Judy Ringer, provides conflict resolution, team building, and communication training throughout the United States and Canada.
