Event Description:
Managing Conflict with Power & Presence
Speaker Judy Ringer

Whether the goal is excellent service, facilitating change, or creating a cooperative work environment, conflict often gets in the way. Most of us see conflict as negative, a perception that has a profound impact on how we manage it.

The Aiki approach presents new ways to utilize and re-direct the energy of conflict. This interactive program uses principles and techniques from Aikido, the Japanese art of reconciliation.

Emphasis is on appreciation, understanding, and working with your "opponents" instead of against them.


• Increased options in habitually stressful situations

• Practice in centering, listening, and managing emotions

• Helpful skills to communicate more effectively in conflict

Judy is the author of Turn Enemies Into Allies: The Art of Peace in the Workplace. She provides conflict, communication, and presentation skills training, coaching and facilitation based on mind/body principles from the martial art Aikido, in which she holds a third-degree black belt. Employing best practice communication models, Judy brings to life key concepts such as self-management under pressure and appreciation of other viewpoints. Her programs are interactive, experiential and energetic.

She is also the author of Unlikely Teachers: Finding the Hidden Gifts in Daily Conflict, and three CDs, Managing Conflict in the Workplace: An Aiki Approach, Simple Gifts: Making the Most of Life's Ki Moments, and This Little Light: The Gift of Christmas, as well as her award-winning newsletter, Ki Moments.

The breakfast will be held in the Victory Club at Wildcat Stadium, located at 155 Main Street in Durham. 

Thank you to the sponsors of the April TechWomen Power Breakfast: New England BioLabs, the University of New Hampshire and C3 Metrics. 


The TechWomen Power Breakfast series is part of the Alliance's TechWomen|TechGirls initiative that builds on a strong community of women enthusiastic about technology and supporting efforts where girls are exploring STEM as a career or area of study. TechWomen|TechGirls holds programs for professional women to connect, collaborate and explore ideas around career development, technology initiatives and innovation. The initiative also deploys volunteers and mentors to support academic STEM initiatives and events for girls across New Hampshire. 

"We are excited to offer a place for women in the technology fields to come together and create lasting meaningful relationships while learning from each other's successes," said Candice Benson of Benson Consulting and chair of the TechWomen|TechGirls Committee. "We have a lot of brilliant women in our community and we are thrilled to be able to celebrate and support them with our power breakfast series."

The breakfast series will take place on the second Wednesday of every month.
