Why do people behave the way they do?!
Communication is fundamental to healthy relationships, and communication skills depend on knowing who we’re communicating with—their style and preferences.
If you’re frustrated with a coworker, it may be that you and your coworker take in information, make decisions, or manage energy differently. If every conversation with a family member ends in heated debate, it could be that the way you approach them is not a style they’re comfortable with.
Using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and some fun aikido activities, Judy Ringer and Chris Olex will help you take an educated look at the personality preferences that drive your behavior and those of your coworkers, friends or family. You’ll leave the workshop with heightened awareness, new wisdom and concrete skills to apply them.
Judy Ringer is the founder of Power & Presence Training and author of Unlikely Teachers: Finding the Hidden Gifts in Daily Conflict. 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.
