Whether the goal is excellent service, facilitating change, or creating a cooperative work environment, conflict often gets in the way.
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.

Managing Difficult Situations by Managing Yourself
Location: University of New Hampshire, Portsmouth
If managing people has become frustrating, if your relationships with co-workers has 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'll 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.
(This is part of the Supervisory Skills Certificate Program, but you do not need to enroll in the program to take this workshop.)
