Conflict as an Unlikely Teacher: Finding the Hidden Gifts

Posted on Jul 30 2012 under Conflict Resolution, Previous Programs

Most of us go about thinking that life happens to us, that conflict is a negative event, and that our reactions are not under our conscious control. In this conversation with Judy Ringer, author, trainer, conflict coach, and Aikido black belt, we’ll discuss how life events, troublesome people, and difficult problems can be gifts that help us strengthen relationships, open communication, and invent life in more purposeful ways. Judy’s book, “Unlikely Teachers” offers stories and practices for turning life’s challenges into life teachers.


Judy Ringer is the author of Unlikely Teachers: Finding the Hidden Gifts in Daily Conflict, and provides conflict, communication, and presentation skills training internationally. Using principles from the martial art Aikido, in which she holds a second-degree black belt, Judy brings to life key concepts such as self-management under pressure and appreciation of other viewpoints.
The founder of Power & Presence Training in Portsmouth, NH, she’s also a singer and the author of two CDs, Managing Conflict in the Workplace, and Simple Gifts: Making the Most of Life’s Ki Moments.
